Mr. Mayur Misra, Co-Founder, Corrit Electric said, “With the launch of Hover, our first electric bike, we aim at providing sustainable, environment friendly and convenient commuting options for teenagers. My team and I observed a huge gap in India’s vast automobile sector and observed that there was a scarcity of personal vehicle options for teenagers, hence, the idea of introducing Hover incepted. We are the only brand in the country at the moment who are introducing an electric scooter specifically for the school going kids between the age groups of 12-17 years. Our goal is to make commute for teenagers convenient, smoother and hassle – free”
