"It is a great testimony that after Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad we are going to Mumbai. Mumbai was the first one to come up with an electric vehicle policy. So that way Mumbai is very progressive. So many people are looking forward, you know, for Revolt to come there. And we've been getting massive, massive response calls, emails. So here we are now," said Rahul Sharma, the founder of Revolt Motors on the sidelines of the launch.
Revolt is Sharma's second venture after Micromax, the prominent smartphone maker which was once the leading smartphone brand in India. While he still also remains a part of Micromax, Revolt is something he focusses on a lot. Sharma told carandbike before the launch that Revolt has plans to go pan-India next year as the COVID19 pandemic has slowed down the process.
"While Mumbai and Delhi are getting better, but in B-C-D tiers, the virus is spreading and the lockdowns are still there. But once the situation settles we will go pan-India next year," he said.
Even though the Mumbai store is the 12th one for the company, there are not huge plans to have many stores pan India. The company plans on using an online model to go pan-India, using its stores mostly for showing off its bikes like a company would, at experience centres. Revolt is focussing on its leveraging its subscription service which and Sharma claims that 80 per cent of the consumers are opting for subscription over the standard model of paying.
