The company is geared up to launch its first electric vehicle, VIDA – Powered by Hero on October 7, 2022. This move by Hero was much needed as the company needed to establish its roots strongly in the ever-growing 2W EV segment. With a US$60 million investment in Cali-based Zero Motorcycles, a partnership with Gogoro and Ather Energy, Hero is hoping to emerge as an EV giant in the near future.
