Ultraviolette Automotive, the makers of the soon to be launched F77 electric motorcycle, hosted its first Battery Day event, where it announced an industry-leading IDC range of 300 km on a single charge on the top-end variant of the F77.
This achievement is the result of extensive R&D and innovations in thermal management and battery architecture, the company noted in a press release.
order to achieve the highest range among all Indian EV motorcycles,
Ultraviolette dedicated the last two years to accelerating the F77’s R&D,
moving to a larger, integrated battery architecture and switching from an
18,650 to a 21,700 format, which resulted in significantly higher volume
optimization. The F77 comes with a 2.5X higher battery capacity than existing
EV 2Ws in India, the highest battery capacity of any EV 2W in India.
Subramaniam, Co-Founder and CEO, Ultraviolette stated, “When we set out to
build India's first high performance electric motorcycle, we knew right from
the beginning that battery tech, and design would be one of the most critical
aspects in making the F77 one of the most anticipated and desirable electric
vehicles in the country. We are immensely proud of what we have achieved over
the last 5 years and are able to bring in the best from aerospace, aviation,
and consumer electronics to create the most advanced electric motorcycle in
India, by every standard. We have always believed that we can create
world-leading technology and design here in India, and we hope that the
benchmark set by us is a starting point in the development of cutting-edge
technologies and reliable electric vehicles by many.”
in-house testing has been a constant throughout the F77’s R&D journey,
including extensive simulation, dyno and on-road testing, power cycling, and
extreme off-road testing. The F77’s battery has also been put through accelerated
ageing and thermal stress testing to ensure the most reliable and robust power
delivery mechanism to customers.
Rajmohan, Co-Founder and CTO, Ultraviolette added, “We have invested equal
amounts of time and energy into the R&D of the F77’s battery as much as
into the development and design of the motorcycle. We have gone through five
generations of battery development and 14 generations of BMS advancements as a
result of our unflinching commitment to developing the most robust and reliable
power architecture of any electric vehicle in the industry.”
in India can pre-book their F77 starting on October 23, 2022. To date, the F77
has received over 70,000 pre launch booking interests from 190 countries.
