Blackbuck EV has initiated road trials for their ELON 3X, a 13-meter electric bus with three axles, at its facility in Hyderabad. These buses will undergo thorough validation and testing processes to prepare for certification.

Ramakrishnam Raju Chintalapati, Founder & CEO of Blackbuck EV, said, “We now look forward to bringing our vehicles to the market beginning in 2025. This year, we are on target to complete our first micro-factory in Hyderabad. Our innovative skateboard platform and composite body represent a new approach to manufacturing setup.”

Following successful proving ground trials, Blackbuck EV intends to conduct public road trials of the ELON 3X in collaboration with one of India’s premier transport operators in the first quarter of 2025. Production is set to commence during the same period.

Raju highlighted their distinctive approach of developing the ELON 3X from scratch, prioritizing research and development to engineer an advanced modular skateboard platform. He emphasized that Blackbuck EV was founded in 2019 with the aim of revolutionizing the bus industry in India. This platform guarantees passenger comfort, reliability, and safety while providing fleet operators with a cost-effective and efficient solution.

Raju also highlighted the incorporation of Indian market nuances into the design of the ELON 3X, such as preferences for extended journeys, high-quality suspension systems, quiet cabins, and thoughtfully designed sleeper beds. The company’s dedication to sustainability is evident in their use of recyclable materials and their focus on minimizing production welding.
