Honda Activa holds the title of being No.1 in scooter sales and No. 2 in total two wheeler sales in April 2022
Over the last few months, the scooter segment has seen a clear migration towards electric scooters. Rising fuel prices, lower cost of maintenance and several state and central government subsidies are steering buyers towards purchase of e-scooters much at the cost of the once high in demand petrol powered scooters.
Despite that, scooter sales have bounced back in April 2022. Top 10 scooter sales in the past month increased to 3,46,325 units, from 2,69,477 units sold in April 2021. This was a 25.52 percent YoY growth, increasing by almost 77k units.
