We introduced world-class electric three-wheelers and two-wheelers to revolutionize and bring a new perspective to the auto-rickshaw, personal transport, and intra-city commuting services market.
Spiro is on the verge of becoming an innovation leader in sustainable vehicle designing and smart battery development using exceptional engineering. Benefits include:
In 2022, we underwent a rebrand to launch Spiro. We leveraged our experience in innovation and market understanding to create a brand that offers a desirable yet sustainable long-term ecosystem for urban mobility.
Our name Spiro symbolises many elements of our company. Spiro takes its roots both the ancient Greeks as well as in science. The word ‘spiro’ means a basket to carry seeds of life or energy in ancient Greek – a metaphor for our two and three wheeled electric vehicles. By democratising clean technology, we mean to help people become more mobile, both physically and within society, in an environmentally responsible way.
Spiro is also a type of compound in chemistry which reminds us to ground ourselves in scientific evidence and integrity in all that we do.
