Electric power-trains are becoming common place and nearly all forms of transport have at least one electric variant today. More interestingly, these are being built by entities ranging from an individual to a global OEMs. An engineering team from Nepal has joined the list with a public debut of their electric vehicle in Kathmandu recently - a lightweight electric bike called Project Zero.
The electric bike is being worked upon by a young engineering team of six led by Ashim Pandey, founder of the company Yatri Motorcycles - the moniker under which the electric bike is being made. The bike has been completely designed in Nepal, while the parts have been sourced from companies across the globe, some in India. The next aim for it is to produce the parts locally as well. The team took two years to come up with the electric two-wheeler, while researching on it from one year prior.
