Omega Seiki Mobility, Exponent Energy partner to develop 15-min charging electric three-wheeler




assenger and commercial electric vehicle (EV) maker Omega Seiki Mobility and rapid charging startup Exponent Energy have co-developed a fast-charging e-three-wheeler that can provide a range of 126 kilometres on a single, 15-minute charge. Exponent Energy's battery pack and rapid charging infrastructure will power the new e-three wheeler–called Stream City Qik–while the vehicle design is Omega Seiki Mobility's.


The e-auto was tested on Indian roads for a year and a half, and the battery can withstand over 3,000 charging cycles before it starts to show any degradation, Arun Vinayak, Co-founder and CEO of Exponent Energy told YourStory ahead of the official launch.


The quick charging capability is expected to help drivers minimise their downtime while charging back to 100%, which typically takes between two to five hours. "By minimising downtime and maximizing efficiency on the road, the [Stream City] Qik ensures that every journey translates into tangible financial gains for our drivers," said Uday Narag, Founder and chairman of Omega Seiki Mobility.


The companies claim that the vehicle will boost drivers' monthly income by a minimum of 30%. At Rs 3.35 lakh ex-showroom and excluding EMPS subsidies, the Stream City Qik comes at a slightly higher price point compared to other electric alternatives in the market. Bajaj's RE E TEC, offering 178 kilometres per charge, is priced between Rs 3.07 lakh to Rs 3.17 lakh, whereas Piaggio's Ape e-city, featuring a swappable battery, ranges from Rs 1.95 lakh to Rs 2.85 lakh.
