Over the next year, the company will be increasing their dealership count in India and under the “Plant a Tree” initiative, wherein the company promises to plant one tree for every scooter sold, a total of 1,000 trees would be planted over the next four months.
There has been an influx of e-scooters in India over the past few months. Most recent entry was the Bajaj Chetak e-scooter while Japanese automaker Suzuki Motors two wheeler unit may also start testing its electric scooter in India sometime in early 2020 but will wait for infrastructure development prior to its launch in the country.
Hero MotoCorp has also invested in the electric two wheels and these developments come at a time when the Government of India is pushing the auto industry towards electric mobility in view of worsening air conditions in India. The Government even mulls banning all combustion engine two wheelers with engine capacity less than 150cc in favor of electric vehicles by 2025.
