Greaves Electric Mobility (GEM), the e-mobility business of Greaves Cotton, has revealed the design inspiration for its upcoming electric two and three-wheelers, poised for unveiling at Auto Expo 2023.
The company’s upcoming EV product portfolio draws its inspiration from the ‘Arctic Tern’, the graceful & most enduring bird that migrates an average annual round-trip length of 60,000 miles a year - that’s twice the circumference of the earth.
The key highlights of the design include a sustainable spirit that stems from the large angular wings, with pointed tips that help the Tern hover in the air and glide through the skies fluidly. This has inspired GEM to bring together an amalgamation of efficient design with sustainable technologies and create products that lead to zero emissions.
A press release by the company read, “When it comes to mobility, the Arctic Tern is highly aerodynamic and slender, with angular wings and streamlined form, allowing it to move swiftly through varied temperate zones, altitudes, and geographies. The new portfolio of EV products has embodied similar aerodynamic efficiency, slick aesthetics, and lightweight form factor, qualities that are essential in an EV for optimal performance and experience.”
The Arctic Tern is said to be sensitive to the earth’s magnetic fields, and it can navigate long-haul flights effortlessly.
