Electrodrive Powertrain Solution or Electra EV has raised about USD 25 million in investment from GEF Capital Partners. The electric mobility startup owned and promoted by industrialist Ratan Tata was setup in 2017.

Electra EV designs and develops, integrates, manufactures, and supplies EV powertrains systems across passenger and commercial vehicle segments.

Its offerings also include end-to-end powertrain solutions - supplying full systems including battery packs, e-traction systems, and integrated electronics, sub-systems, and components across multiple segments like two and three-wheelers, four-wheelers and EV applications in agriculture and off-highway segments.

The company issued a statement on Thursday where it said that Electra EV will utilize the raised capital for expanding its product portfolio across e3 Wheelers, e4 Wheelers, agricultural applications, and other EV segments to serve both domestic and international manufacturers.

It also plans to further advance its design, testing, and prototyping capabilities and expand the production capacity to support growing volumes, the statement said.

"This fund raise provides us with both financial wherewithal and a like-minded partner like GEF Capital to help us continuously innovate, and acquire new customers in India and overseas, thereby achieving our vision of transforming the global movement towards cleaner fuels," said Samir Yajnik, Executive Director at Electra EV.
