The automotive industry is constantly trying to keep up with the market in this age of innovation and new technologies. As electric vehicles become more and more popular. Almost every day, a new electric vehicle startup hits the market. And, to stand out, each company tries and tests new tricks and initiatives. Likewise, EV startup Tork Motors has embraced an intriguing and innovative idea.
To transport customers back to their childhood, Kratos electric bikes are packaged in a 1:1 scale box similar to a toy bike. Kapil Shelke, the founder of Tork Motors, delivered his Tork Kratos R in a 1:1 scale box to a customer as part of this unique and exciting delivery initiative.
