Gensol Engineering witnessed a significant surge of almost 7% in its shares on Wednesday following the announcement that its electric vehicles subsidiary had secured certification from the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) for its upcoming electric vehicle (EV).

The company’s shares soared to an intraday high of Rs 1,270, marking a 6.67% increase from its previous closing price on the National Stock Exchange (NSE). By 10:30 am, the stock had risen by 2.05%, trading at Rs 1,214.85.

As per Gensol’s exchange filing dated February 28, its subsidiary, Gensol Electric Vehicles Pvt Ltd, successfully obtained certification and approval from ARAI for its compact EV, paving the way for its official launch and sale in the Indian market.
