He said the company has in-house R&D team for product development and also has collaboration with "global technology providers from the UK and Europe to focus on futuristic and innovative products".

Avan Motors has a manufacturing plant at Hinjewadi in Pune. Spread over 22,000 sq ft, the unit has a production capacity of 36,000 per annum on single shift basis. When asked if the company planned to have other plants, he said:"As the market grows, we will come with minimum three more satellite plants across various regions." Avan Motors has 25 touch points across India, and plans to reach 200 touch points by end of 2019, Thakur said.
