Etrio, India’s electric vehicle start-up, with an aim of electrifying intracity logistics has launched its new electric three-wheeler range of products under the brand name “Touro”.
Catering to the cargo segment, the two new variants will be focused on intra-city logistics especially in last-mile delivery applications. The passenger variants of the three-wheelers will be rolled out soon. The company raised funding of $3 million, last month to facilitate these launches.
The brand, Touro, is derived from the Portuguese word Toro which means ‘a bull’. The design philosophy, thus, emulates the attributes of a bull such as strong stability, unmatched power and immense load carrying capacity. Touro comes with bull inspired signature front grille
