Speaking on the occasion of the launch of new EVo1, Mr. Prateek Sharma, one of the project managers of the team, said, "In EVo1, two motors are coupled with each other mechanically. The technology used in this version is mechanical differential. But we are planning to use the two motors independently in the next version. The technology used there will be of electronic differential. This will give more grip and also increase the performance by reducing the time taken to cover each lap during the race."
