The Indian automotive industry is undergoing a seismic shift, with electric vehicles (EVs) firmly leading the charge. In the past few years, the sales of e-bikes in India have gone through the roof. However, this is just the beginning.

According to a recent study, the introduction of advanced technological features is one of the primary reasons behind the growing adoption of EV bikes. Electric bike manufacturers are responding to the demand by integrating cutting-edge technologies into their models.

From the latest IoT technology to smart safety features, the best smart e-bikesin India today are offering consumers an all-new way to commute.


The Convergence of IoT and E-bikes

IoT, or the Internet of Things, refers to a network of devices and sensors connected via the internet that is capable of exchanging data with each other. For instance, your smartphone and fitness tracker ‘talk’ to each other to exchange information about your health.

Although IoT was introduced with the vision of improving computer mechanics, it soon penetrated a wide range of industries. Today, the latest IoT technology is deployed in security systems, healthcare, and, of course, automobiles.

The EV sector in India is heralding a new era of smart mobility. An electric bike that can ‘communicate’ with the cloud and exchange performance and diagnostics data – this is not a piece of science fiction but a scene from reality. In recent years, the e-bike has undergone something of a transformation with the incorporation of the latest IoT technology.

Oben Electric, one of the best smart e-bike companies in India , is a player that has been able to crack the code for futuristic EV bikemodels. Its newest model, the Oben Rorr, integrates cutting-edge technology and IoT-enabled features, making it an instant hit among Indian EV enthusiasts.
