How the dream was born:
The journey began in 2018 when two old friends, Samarth and Sandeep, connected over a common cause. Inspired by a dream to make electric vehicles accessible to all, they created BLive – India’s first experiential tourism on e-bikes
Within a year of its inception, BLive grew in presence and popularity across India. For the first time, thousands of people got a chance to touch, feel and ride an e-bike. The e-bike tours was a hit among travellers and proved to be an effective way to demonstrate the e-bikes. The customers often asked if they could buy the e-bikes for personal use. They soon realised that BLive was more than just e-bike tours, they were offering a hands-on experience for the customers and guiding them like ‘experts’ in choosing the right e-bike.
The onset of Covid -19 fuelled the desire for a personal and affordable two-wheeler option and the team got cracking. The lockdown turned out to be boon for them as they worked tirelessly to bring the BLive EV Store to life, and fast. Leveraging on their experience of EVs, partnerships with EV brands and a highly motivated team, BLive launched India’s first online EV store. The EV Store made it easy and fun for anyone to choose the right EV. Against all odds their dream of making EVs accessible to all was finally coming true!
