Founder of ECO PLANET MOTORS PVT. LTD.
Krunal Nanavati a B.E. Mechanical is an engineering maverick who founded Eco Planet Motors Private Limited in 2019. Prior to this, the brand Eco Planet was birthed in 2013 and commercialized in the sole proprietary organizational format. Krunal set out trying to be different from the crowd and ended up being differentiated as a mobility technology catalyst.
The yet unfinished story started as an Undergrad in 2005. Motorcycles were his poison and the beat of the engine resonated in his heartbeat. During this period, crude went on to hit and all time high of $149 and the Carbon Footprint movement gained momentum. And, this was it. He setout to make an electric motorcycle as his final year project. Krunal with his electric motorcycle went to the Isle of Man, UK with the aspiration of participating in the world’s first ever electric motorcycle race and ironically, for a nascent technology worldwide, the race was to be held on the toughest and most unforgiving racing track on the planet in the Isle of Man. The problems that Krunal faced in this run up make up for the story of a best seller. That apart, he represented Tork India in race as a rank outsider and an underdog. As the race progressed, the jeers turned into cheers and his team achieved the 3rd position in open class. Krunal through Tork India again participated in TTXGP 2010 UK Championship and claimed the first place at SNETTERTON,UK.
Post these races, he consolidated his experience with Agni Motors from 2010 to 2012 as the Project Development Manager and Head of the Quality Control Department. Agni Motors has since been rechristened as Saietta Engineering. Pvt. Ltd.
Come 2013 and krunal branched out on his own and created the commercial enterprise Eco Planet Motors. Eco Planet dealt in high performance electrical kits.
