2024 Kinetic eLuna Technical Specifications

“The electric revolution in the automotive industry is gaining momentum, and Kinetic Green’s E-Luna, with its versatile features and affordability, matches the government’s vision for sustainable transportation. What catches my attention about the E-Luna is not merely the fact of it reducing carbon footprint, but along with Tier 1 cities, the E-Luna is also aimed at providing e-mobility for Tier 2, Tier 3 cities and rural areas of India. This is where the real Bharat is! It is a vehicle that encourages geographical inclusivity. This is the inclusivity that will see Bharat grow, expand and become a leading economic superpower in the world. With products like this, we can envision a future where electric mobility is not just a luxury but a practical and affordable choice for everyone. I congratulate Kinetic Green for their vision and wish them success in transforming the landscape of electric mobility in our country.”
Remembering his first vehicle, Shri Nitin Gadkari expressed
“On this special occasion, I reminisce about my first vehicle—the Luna, a cherished gift from my mother to me. The Luna holds a special place in my heart as my first vehicle, and though today I own numerous other vehicles, the memories associated with the Luna presented by my mother remain engraved in my heart”.
During the unveiling of E-Luna, Ms. Sulajja Firodia Motwani, the Founder and CEO of Kinetic Green said,
“The E-Luna’s unveiling is a proud moment for Kinetic Green, marking a nostalgic return to Luna’s legacy. E-Luna’s entry into the realm of electric mobility is nothing short of a revolution. Beyond just a vehicle launch, it represents our vision of inclusion for the future of e-mobility. Today, electric vehicles have reached only a 5 to 6 % penetration in the automobile market and two of the key reasons for this are that most of today’s electric vehicle options are expensive making them unaffordable for a vast majority and many of them are not suitable to ride beyond the metro or large cities, making their appeal niche and limited. This is where E-Luna emerges as a beacon of hope, because with E-Luna, electric mobility will become a practical and affordable choice for everyone and everywhere in India. At an introductory ex-showroom price of Rs. 69,990, E-Luna is not only the most affordable high speed electric two-wheeler but also the most easy-on-pocket two-wheeler with its 10 paisa per km running cost!
This electric Multi-Utility Vehicle (MUV), designed for personal or commercial use, goes beyond typical EV products. Symbolizing innovation and minimalistic yet futuristic user-centric design, the E-Luna is fully made in India and designed for Bharat, reflecting our commitment to a sustainable, equitable, and progressive future. In this transformative journey, we are today redefining electric mobility, creating a narrative that echoes the iconic Luna’s spirit and shapes India’s transportation future.”
