“We recently exhibited our launch at the Auto Expo in Noida, and the response was overwhelming for a bootstrap manufacturer like us. This further reinforced our association with PaytmMall as for the both of us, customer satisfaction is the key. Being a highly trusted and visited e-commerce app, we were able to penetrate better into tier2 cities by joining hands with them. They are available in 7 regional languages and would allow anyone, anywhere to shop through them, which is exactly what we wanted,”
The Menza Lucat is powered by an 18 kW electric motor that develops a maximum of 24 Bhp and 60 Nm. The motor draws power from the 72V Li-ion battery pack that comes with smart BMS system.
