Default Auto Expo 2018: Um Renegade Thor To Be India's First Ever Electric Cruiser?

In what could be a first of its kind, UM announced that it will launch a new cruiser at the Auto Expo - 18, with one major difference, it will be a EV named Renegade Thor

Quote:
Announcing this, Rajeev Mishra, CEO, UM Lohia Two Wheelers said, “We are very excited to be a part of the Auto Expo 2018 and are confident that the visitors will be thrilled by the UM range of Motorcycles showcased at our stand. We will also be unveiling the world’s first electric geared high- speed cruiser at the Auto Expo.”

UM is expected to reveal its price, specification and other details during the auto expo itself.

I think he is referring to the final version. That is quite possible, he might have given inputs during design and development stages.

The fact that they have hired a race car driver, that too, Narain Karthikeyan, to fine tune the driving dynamics of their cars. And they haven't even let him go near their sports car, which is weird, in my opinion.
I'm not surprised by this, because even Lewis Hamilton,who helped Mercedes to develop AMG Project one,hadn't driven the vehicle before the launch exhibition.
Same case with Aston Martin-Redbull's Valkyrie and Daniel Riccardo.

Just received the schedule for media unveilings.
In a stark contrast to previous edition of Auto Expo, this time only day 1 (7th Feb) has all the action.
There is no remarkable unveiling / launch on 8th except Maruti and UM.
This could be the effect of many companies opting out of the show. Sad.


Mods: Hope it is okay to post short videos from the expo floor in this thread. I will be uploading some live on youtube and share the links here. Is there any limit for number of posts I can do in a day in here?

Is Jeep participating in the auto expo? And if so is there a plan to unveil the Renegade that is bound to India and other RHD markets?

Jeep is not taking part in the Autoexpo. They sure are making the right noises outside with the Compass Trailhawk version.

Toyota's India innings comes of age. They have started to compete with Mahindra ! If Mahindra can do, we can out do it !
