E-Luna is a high-speed Electric two-wheeler that is 100% designed, engineered and Made in India with a vision that masses, and not just classes, participate in the EV revolution and benefit from the advantages of e-mobility of great savings and noiseless, emission-free ride. At the heart of the stylish design of the new E-Luna is its unique, metallic colored, dual-tubular, high-strength steel chassis. The chassis makes the E-Luna capable of providing a stable ride over various terrains. Its multi-utility aspect allows it to function not only for personal mobility but also as a 'business partner', with a remarkable 150 kg payload capacity. 

The E-Luna also packs many impressive features including advanced 2.0 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, that delivers a range of 110 km on a single charge.  E-Luna variants will offer options of 1.7 kWh, 2.0 kWh and subsequently, a 3.0 kWh battery pack with 150 km per charge riding range, empowering customers to choose the E-Luna as per their range and price requirement. E-Luna’s battery meets the highest safety standard with efficient thermal management. E-Luna is available with fast charging battery technology and swappable battery options, specially for B2B used cases. 

With an advanced BLDC mid-mount motor with 2.2 kW peak capacity, E-Luna has a top speed of 50 km/h.  The E-Luna is equipped with a CAN-enabled communications protocol, and its sleek digital meters offers enhanced convenience alongside real-time DTE or 'Distance to Empty' range indicators to its riders. E-Luna’s key aggregates including the battery, motor and controller are designed to the IP-67 standard as water-proof, dust-proof aggregates for long lasting use in any driving terrain.

Shri Nitin Gadkari, Hon'ble Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India, expressed his excitement about the launch, stating, "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. I congratulate Kinetic Green for their vision and wish them success in transforming the landscape of electric mobility in our country.”

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. 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."

E-Luna aspires to be more than a mode of transport, presenting itself as a comprehensive solution designed for the street-smart and aspiring Indians underserved by the automotive industry. Currently the total cost of owning a petrol-based two-wheeler is around Rs. 6,000-7000 per month, with EMI of Rs. 2500-3000 per month and petrol cost of around Rs. 3,000-4000 per month, making personal mobility unaffordable for many. E-Luna’s Total cost of ownership (TCO) will be below Rs. 2,500 per month, with EMI of around Rs. 2,000 per month and charging cost of just Rs. 300 per month. At a total monthly cost of only Rs. 2,500, E-Luna can play a pivotal role in serving a broader demographic, addressing the mobility needs of aspirers and contributing to a sustainable and accessible future.

Dr. Arun Firodia, Chairman of Kinetic Group said, "The E-Luna's rebirth signifies a great milestone in Kinetic’s journey, offering more than mere transportation. E-Luna effortlessly preserves the nostalgic charm of its predecessor, while embracing sustainability and cutting-edge technology. I am proud to state that the E-Luna is 100% designed for India and 100% Made in India! We are also proud to share that entire Kinetic Group has supported the E-Luna development, and our group companies like Kinetic Engineering, Kinetic Communications and Kinetic Electric Motor Company have developed the key components like the E-Luna trademark chassis, the transmission, smart controller, digital cluster and the motor.”
