Electric motorcycles in India
The quest for electric vehicles in India has begun, and progress is slow. However, there are some manufacturers that have read the market, and made an entry. The EV shift is being dominated by public transport, last mile commuter and delivery vehicles, and electric scooters.
When it comes to electric two-wheelers, there are less than a handful of electric motorcycles available. As such, the marketplace could prove to be a great opportunity for new products.
Currently, only Revolt Motors operates in this space. With Kridn geared up for business, an early movers advantage is something the company would count on.
This despite that fact that the said market is painfully small now. And there’s no telling how quickly folks adapt to EVs, especially an electric motorcycle. Nevertheless, though small, it’s a start. And for those seeking an electric motorcycle, a new entrant should be a welcome development.
