The scooter segment is likely to face some competition with a range of new electric scooters being launched in quick succession. FAME II subsides and benefits offered by various State Governments will ensure more affordable pricing than their petrol powered counterparts. The Ola S1 and S1 Pro have just made their presence felt along with Simple One electric scooter. The current range Ather 450X has also been making headlines along with the Bajaj Chetak electric and TVS iQube.
