Company operations director Avinash Bhandari said the prototypes have been submitted to Pune-based Automobile Research Authority of India (ARAI) for approval.

The company, a division of Electrotherm (India) Limited, launched the battery-operated two-wheelers last February in Gujarat and has sold 30,000 so far. The Yobyke uses a lead-acid battery with a five-hour charge time and a range of 70 km (43 miles) per charge. Maximum speed is 25 kph (16 mph). The company is developing a two-wheeler with a top speed of 80 kph (50 mph).
