Bounce electric scooter N3310 production begins, to be priced under INR 50k
View attachment 1047433

Last year, Bengaluru-based smart mobility startup Bounce decided to enter the electric scooter market with its very own offering, the Bounce N3310. As per Vivekananda Hallekere, that was after completing 25 million rides in under 18 months in Bengaluru. To bring down fuel bills and emissions, the company earlier tied-up with Ather and Ampere and already has electric scooters in its fleet.
Now, production of the Bounce N3310 has began. Bounce is manufacturing the new electric scooter at a site in Coimbatore. Hallekere has tweeted that the Bounce electric scooter will have swappable batteries, although it’s not that we didn’t know that already.
In September last year, Bounce received homologation certification for the N3310 from the International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT). This certificate is necessary for an organization to start producing self-assembled EVs and petrol vehicles, making Bounce one of the few ride-sharing startups to acquire one.
Bounce was founded with a vision of revamping the urban commuting sector in metro cities by bringing in scooter-sharing services. The largest chunk of its fleet is based in Bengaluru with a total of 22,000 two-wheelers in the city. The second-largest fleet is based in Hyderabad, with a total number of 5,000 two-wheelers in the city.
In December last year, Bounce said that it plans to add 4,000 more electric scooters to its fleet by the end of this month and make the fleet completely electric-powered by the end of 2022, newindianexpress.com reported.
Even though the country was in a lockdown due to COVID-19, Bounce kept busy with the development of its first in-house electric scooter codenamed the N3310. According to Bounce’s official website, the self-assembled electric scooter will be available on a subscription basis and on a long-term rental plan as well. In contrast, crosstown rival Yulu Bikes has tied up with Bajaj Auto to develop low-cost last-mile electric mobility scooters.
The specs cited at the official Bounce website point towards a real world range of 60 km on a single charge and a dedicated battery-swapping network. If an electric scooter is low on battery and a customer is in need of one, the battery swapping network inside the city is there to support. This battery-swapping network was previously introduced by Revolt (as explained here by a Revolt electric bike user), which opened up the electric motorcycle segment.

A family-owned masala business in TN plans to hit markets in the South

Coimbatore’s Annapoorna Masalas builds products for local cuisines

Annapoorna Masalas and Spices, which started off as a small-time supplier of masalas and spices to city hotels in Coimbatore 45 years ago, is now planning to expand to all the Southern States in the next few months.
Vijay Prasad, a third-generation entrepreneur, has chalked out ambitious plans to go beyond Tamil Nadu, expanding to Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana by launching masalas for popular local cuisines.
He admits that that the masala and spices market is quite cluttered with several organised and unorganised players flooding the market with a variety of products.

“Yes, the market is cluttered. But our products will stand out as they cater to the local palate. For one, we go to Telugu-speaking areas with offerings like Andhra Koora Kaaram Powder,” Vijay Prasad, Executive Director of the company, told Business Line.

“Name a popular cuisine in these States, we will have a masala mix product. We have deputed teams with chefs to various of parts of the South to identify popular local cuisines and develop products to suit those cuisines,” he said.

Targeting higher turnover

The firm, which achieved a turnover of ₹40 crore this financial year, is targeting to reach ₹90 crore in 2021-22.
Vijay Prasad’s father R Velumani took over the reins from his father Damodarasamy Naidu in 1980. Vijay Prasad, who studied food technology in Australia, returned to India and joined the family business in 2012 and focused on product standardisation.
After becoming the Executive Director in 2019, he has decided to expand the operations to the Southern markets in a big way.
Our manufacturing capacity has gone up to 35 tonnes in 2019 from 3 tonnes in 2014. We have two integrated plants at the 30,000-square feet facility at Coimbatore. When we cross the ₹150-crore turnover market, we might set up a plant near Guntur or Nellore,” he said.
He said the existing capacity would take them to a turnover of ₹200 crore in the next 2-3 years.
The firm, which has about 200 employees, will add 100 more by the year-end. “Most of the new additions will be in the sales department,” he said.

In early 2000s, we used to buy Annapoorna brand masalas while Sakthi was the other brand available in market. That time Achi was not there or not popular.

Few years later Annapoorna almost dissapeared and Sakthi and Achi became top masala brands.

For taste, Annapoorna is preferable for sure.
