This provides easier access and portability for the user to charge the battery anywhere, anytime.

The frame is developed to provide even weight balance and distribution.

The Volta Zap is the first cross-over electric bike in India, it is also the first purpose-built E-bike designed for Indian road conditions unlike any other e-bikes which are available in the market. The Pedal assist feature helps the user to pedal the bike with an ease as it gives 3 full cycle wheel rotation for every single pedal rotation made. The LED reflectors placed on the bike makes it safer to ride during nights.

Integrated facilities for smart phones with customizable body panels and a wide range of colour choices make the product even more attractive. Since there is no license and registration process involved, the product reduces unnecessary customer strains for transferring the product all over India. The company is going to launch the new Volta Zap on 5th August 2016 in Bangalore, test rides will begin from the same place.
