The start-up began making electric three-wheelers in 2017 and it was only in 2020 that the firm, headlined by Nemin Vora, CEO, ventured in the electric two-wheelers business. Odysee says that the offerings are locally assembled at its manufacturing facility in Gujarat with components imported in India. The company has not shared where the parts are exactly sourced from but did say they were reworked to meet the requirements for our roads. The battery pack though is sourced from Indian vendors and reworked to meet the requirement of the Odysee electric two-wheelers. The e-scooters use portable batteries, which the company says takes about 3.5-4 hours to fully charge, depending on the model.
