Our Story

Terra Motors Corporation is the driving force behind the transportation revolution in Asia. Founded in April 2010 by the visionary Mr. Toru Tokushige, with a dream to start an environment-friendly transportation system in Asian countries.

With a keen understanding that over 80% of global gasoline motorcycle sales are concentrated in Asia, we have set our sights on addressing the critical issue of air pollution caused by motorcycle exhaust emissions. Terra Motors is proud to have made significant strides in India, where we have established ourselves as leaders in the design, manufacturing, sales, and after-service of electric three-wheelers. Our commitment to excellence has been recognized through the attainment of homologation, making us the first foreign company in India to accomplish this milestone.

Since our inception in 2014, Terra Motors India has positioned itself as a global enterprise, leveraging Japanese technology to promote a green and clean transportation system. Our unstoppable commitment to this cause has enabled our company to grow by more than 200%, proving our effectiveness in satisfying our client's demands.

At Terra Motors India, we offer a comprehensive range of 3-wheeler electric vehicles tailored to diverse customer segments and market demands. Whether you seek an affordable model or a high-end premium option, we have you covered. Additionally, we introduced Terra Finance in 2021. Terra Motors finances E-Rickshaw to people from the bottom end of the social pyramid and those who would like to earn a respectable living. With our EVs customers can enjoy cost savings and a better driving experience. We understand the importance of serving all our customers' needs while fostering the growth of a complete EV ecosystem. That’s why we launched Terra Charge in 2023 as a charging solution committed to building an EV infrastructure environment that facilitates the spread of EVs for the next generation of clean energy evolution.

Our mission extends beyond enhancing the lives of our customers. We are committed to creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly future through our electric mobility offerings. By choosing Terra Motors, you are not only embracing cutting-edge technology but also actively contributing to the preservation of our planet.
