Energy, a mobility tech startup from Coimbatore that designs and manufactures electric
adventure motorcycle SUVs and solid state Battery Technology, has developed R-SUV,
the first fully electric SUV Bike, a crossover between a scooter and a
motorcycle and has been designed to deliver high performance and comfortable
riding in all weather conditions.
bike will have a range of up to 300kms and a top speed of 145 kilometers per
hour, The R- series SUV is available in two variants, an Affordable variant and
a Long range variant. The Affordable
variant is priced at Rs 1.25 lakh, delivers a range up to 130 kms on a single
charge. It achieves 0-100 kmph under 6.5 Seconds and has a top speed of 100
kmph [Electronically Limited]. It requires less than 30 minutes for the battery
to charge from 0-80%.
Long range variant is priced under Rs 3 lakh and delivers a range up to 300 kms
on a single charge. It achieves 0-100 kmph in less than 3 seconds and a top
speed of 145 kmph. It requires less than 45 minutes for the battery to charge
an emphasis on inhouse design and manufacturing, every component of Gugu
Energy’s R-Series SUV has been developed in-house without any existing OEM component
supplier. From vehicle styling, USD forks and infotainment to battery pack
technology, R-series SUV is designed and manufactured entirely at Gugu Energy’s

has developed a proprietary semi-solid state battery technology that can charge
a battery from 0-80% in under 15 minutes. Gugu Energy’s semi-solid state batteries
provides more than 250Wh/Kg and has 85% capacity after 160,000 miles and last
up to 500,000 miles.
an essential ingredient in electric vehicle batteries, has been the primary
reason behind the high cost of an EV Battery Cell thereby resulting in slower
adoption. With a mission to make cobalt free battery packs, Gugu Energy has
formulated and patented a Low cost Nickel-aluminium-Manganese based Semi-Solid
state lithium battery pack solution that contains less than 5% cobalt content
to drive down cost of packs to $120-140/Kw from current $210/Kw.
R-series SUV has a 5” inch touchscreen infotainment, a first of its kind in the
segment that provides real-time energy consumption, range estimation,
navigation along with an in-built GPS system that gives updates on real time
traffic conditions. The Integrated AI powered Gugu Energy App enables you to
see nearby charging locations and provides vehicle diagnostics at the rider’s
the next few years, Gugu Energy will create fast charging stations across
India. Whether it’s home or office or during a long distance travel, Gugu
energy will setup multiple charging locations pan India.
Energy was founded by PSG Tech Alumni Guhan RP in the year 2015 along with his
colleagues during their third year of Mechanical engineering. Gugu Energy has
currently crossed 5000+ pre order bookings and has 25+ patents under its belt.
The company has so far raised $750K in angel funding from Sudarshan Paul,
Founder and CEO of a Dubai based Private oil and Gas corporation and from
Kannan, an Industrialist in Coimbatore.
