Omega Seiki Mobility recently unveiled Rage+ Frost, an electric three with a refrigerated carriage purposely designed for pharmaceuticals and food delivery.

The OSM was working hard to develop a product, which will help to deliver the Covid-19 vaccine. The introduction of Electric three-wheelers on the electrification front will be a great initiative to resolve the problem of last-mile delivery. This is an important step for the growth of our company as well, Uday Narang, Chairman of Omega Seiki Mobility, said.

Last-mile in India is always the most challenging task and this will be accomplished by our Rage+ Frost. The system has been designed to run on battery for 72 hours. It can maintain 0 to 20 degrees, once charged for 3 days. This is in line with our vision of making vaccines available to all, at doorsteps. We also have tied up with B Medical a pioneer in PCM refrigeration box technology from Europe for storage in small boxes. These can be cooled to as low as -70degree. These combined with Rage+ Frost provide a complete Vaccine delivery system.”, added Dr. Deb Mukherji, Managing Director, Omega Seiki Mobility.
