Euler Motors raises $24 Mn led by Piramal Alternatives


Commercial electric vehicle manufacturer ​​Euler Motors has raised Rs 200 crore ($24 million) more in Series C round led by new investor Piramal Alternatives India Access Fund. Existing investors British International Investment and Blume Ventures also participated in the funding tranche.

Euler Motors will utilize the fresh proceeds for pan-India presence and raising servicing infrastructure in 40 cities by March 2025, Euler Motors said in a press release. With this, the Delhi-based company also claimed to raise Rs 570 crore ($68.6 million) in its series C round.

The firm had raised Rs 120 crore (approximately $14.5 million) in an extended Series C round co-led by British International Investment and Blume Ventures in November last year. It has raised Rs 770 crore ($92 million) to date. As per startup data intelligence platform TheKredible, Euler was valued at around $160 million during an extended Series C round in November 2023.

According to Euler Motors, its commercial electric vehicles collectively transported goods over 45 million kilometers. The company’s flagship model HiLoad EV claims to be the most powerful electric cargo three-wheeler, with a range of 170 kilometers.

In FY24, the company claims to have sold 3,700 vehicles and expanded its presence from 5 to 22 cities.

On the lines of many startups, Euler also laid off 10% of its employees to cut costs and navigate through a tight funding environment.

For the fiscal year ending in March 2023, Euler registered Rs 61.53 crore in revenue from operations against Rs 17.57 crore in FY22. As per TheKredible, its losses spiked nearly 5X to Rs 174.73 crore in FY23 from Rs 36.33 crore in the previous year. The heavy losses could be attributed to investment made by the firm in creating infrastructure and facilities.

In the electric three-wheeler space, it competes with Altigreen and legacy players like Mahindra Electric, Piaggio, Kinetic Green, and Tata, among others.
