While all electric vehicles (EVs) boast of reducing carbon emissions, Pune based Vayve Mobility has gone a step ahead with an electric four-wheeler partially powered by solar energy to suit urban sensibilities.

The electric mobility market in India has seen tremendous growth in the past five years due to increasing climate consciousness and reduced operational costs. While electric two-wheelers have found greater acceptance as the Indian consumer navigates through overly crowded roads, the absence of the comfort provided by a four-wheeler is very conspicuous.

To fill this void, Pune based startup Vayve Mobility has come up with an electric car with a solar photovoltaic roof designed to meet the needs of modern urban commuters. The compact two-seater car, called Eva, is designed with a focus on practicality and ease of use, to manoeuvre through traffic and park in tight spaces.

Incorporated in 2021, Vayve Mobility is the brainchild of Chief Executive Officer Nilesh Bajaj and Chief Technology Officer Saurabh Mehta, who started working on the project in 2019, along with Programme Manager Ankita Jain and Chief Operating Officer Vilas Deshpande. ìWe believe that although two-wheelers are convenient, they donít give you the safety and the comfort of a car. At the same time, a car need not be a five-seater, 500-kilometre range vehicle. We see this car as a completely new category between two-wheelers and four-wheelers of today, which is perfect for 90% of city commute,î says Bajaj.
