As per the company, the experience centre will allow EV enthusiasts to access Altigreen’s range of electric cargo vehicles. For the partnership, Altigreen opted to go with one of the most reliable and experienced names in the industry – Jubilant Motorworks.
Presently, Jubilant Motorworks is the largest dealer partner for Audi and MG motors, with footprints in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Goa, and Gujarat. The Altigreen Retail Experience Centre is located in Hadapsar, Pune.

The Maharashtra State Government’s EV policy 2021 is aimed at accelerating the adoption of BEVs in the state so that they contribute to 10% of new vehicle registrations by 2025. The Government of Maharashtra promises to provide fiscal incentives, to the buyers of EVs in the state.
Also, Maharashtra is the only other state in India, after Delhi, which has a single window approval mechanism for setting up charging infrastructure vital to commercial viability. The new retail experience centre in Pune will help those making the transition to EVs experience Altigreen’s range of offerings from up close.
Dr Amitabh Saran, Founder and CEO, Altigreen, said, “With the launch of this new retail experience centre in Pune, we are steadily building a strong nationwide network to cater to the rising demand for commercial EVs in the country.
For now, Maharashtra is the only state where we now have two retail experience centres. As a homegrown company, we take great pride in delivering Made in India products. We are investing significantly to strengthen our production and R&D capabilities while developing a robust pan-India distribution network to offer the best and cleanest last-mile transportation.
