California’s Biliti Electric will set up world’s largest E-three-wheeler factory in Telangana



California-based Biliti Electric Inc is all set to open up its electric three-wheeler plant in Telangana. The plant will boast of a production capacity of 240,000 electric vehicles each year, making it the world’s largest electric three-wheeler factory. The plant is estimated to bring in USD 150 million of private investment to the state and create over 3,000 jobs. This is in alignment with Telangana’s policy to become a global hub for EV and energy storage manufacturing.

The plant will be built in two phases over an area of 200 acres. Phase 1 will have a capacity to produce 18,000 vehicles each year, it will be developed over 13.5 acres and is expected to be operational by 2023. The larger facility having the capability of 240,000 units a year will be operational by 2024 and spread across 200 acres.
The plants will produce Biliti Electric’s full line-up of electric vehicles such as the ‘Taskman’ cargo model and passenger version called the ‘Urban’ for the global markets. Currently, Biliti’s Taskman has been serving in 15 countries across the globe. Biliti currently operates under an exclusive partnership with Hyderabad-based Gayam Motor Works (GMW) for manufacturing its three-wheelers.

‘We are proud to manufacture our exciting EV lineup in Telangana state,” said Rahul Gayam, Biliti Electric’s CEO. “The TaskmanTM has already made more than 12 million deliveries worldwide with many more to come. Our batteries and drivetrain are compact and modular in design, allowing them to have wider applications in auto, marine, warehousing, and backup power sectors enabling the buildout of an EV ecosystem.’
One of the key features of Biliti three-wheelers is the SmartSwapp technology. This allows the vehicles to run on swappable batteries that enable them to overcome challenges arising from lack of infrastructure, range anxiety and unreliable electric grids. They also ease time pressure on delivery drivers.
