Due to the slow depletion of natural resources (petrol and diesel), many manufacturers are now focusing on electric vehicles. However, electric two-wheelers are slowly gaining popularity in the Indian market. With big giants like Bajaj Auto and TVS entering the market with their electric two-wheeler, customers have a lot of options to choose from. However, Hero MotoCorp is yet to enter the electric Two-wheeler space.
According to the latest report by Money Control, Niranjan Gupta, CFO, Hero MotoCorp, has confirmed that the company will launch its first electric two-wheeler in the first quarter of 2022. Also, earlier Hero MotoCorp and Gogoro Inc. announced a strategic partnership to accelerate the shift to sustainable electric mobility in India.
The partnership brings together Hero, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, and Gogoro, the global leader in urban battery swapping and smart mobility innovation. However, it is good to see manufacturers like Hero encouraging the use of electric vehicles for a better environment.
Through this partnership, the companies will establish a battery swapping joint venture to bring Gogoro’s industry-leading battery swapping platform to India. It will also collaborate on electric vehicle development to bring Hero-branded, powered by Gogoro Network vehicles to market.
Currently, Hero has sold 3.72 lakh units of two-wheelers in the month of April. The company said that the plant and showrooms were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, due to which there has been a decrease in sales.
