Jupiter Capital makes an investment of US$ 2 million in Altigreen Propulsion

Bangalore-based Jupiter Capital has made an investment of US$ 2 million in Altigreen Propulsion Labs Pvt Ltd, a niche start-up providing technology enabled solutions for electric and hybrid powertrains.

Jupiter Capital has been looking at investment opportunities in disruptive technology ventures focused on the opportunity space of Make in India, Designed in India, and Smart City.

Jupiter Capital’s director Sudhakar Gande said, “Altigreen has developed hybrid technology solution enabling every vehicle to become a hybrid. The patented technology of the company can be easily replicated in other developing nations to address growing concerns on greenhouse gas emission. The solution developed by the company is innovative and disruptive at a price point, enabling accelerated adoption.”

Altigreen is engaged in research, design and development of proprietary hybrid vehicle technology for the Indian market. Kits developed by Altigreen address two burning concerns of all global citizens today: improve fuel-efficiency (~30%) and reduce harmful tailpipe emissions (~25%), not just for new vehicles but also for the large population of existing cars and trucks.

Dr Amitabh Saran, CEO, Altigreen, said, “Altigreen has designed a solution that is fuel & OEM agnostic, totally transparent to the driving experience, and completely reversible. Championing the cause of Make in India, Altigreen wants to democratize the use of much needed clean hybrid technologies and offer affordable solutions to the developing world. We are very excited to have Jupiter Capital support us in this mission.”

Altigreen, headquartered in Bangalore, is co-founded by serial entrepreneur Dr Amitabh Saran, vehicle control engineering guru Dr Lasse Moklegaard, finance and manufacturing veteran Shalendra Gupta, and electromagnetics expert Dr John Bangura with decades of experience in building rotating machines for auto and aviation sectors.
