To electrify the last mile mobility in every corner of the world-
GoVidyouth! Go Green
About The Company
GoVidyouth is clean tech startup committed to bring innovative solutions tailored for Indian market conditions. On one hand, with the deteriorating air quality, the use of greener mobility solutions is the need of the hour, on the other hand, the lack of uninterrupted electricity supply and lack of charging station infrastructure pose unique challenges to vehicle electrification in India. At the same time, providing a long-range electric vehicle solution meeting the budgetary requirements of an average customer adds to the constraints.
