While it continues to dominate the petrol-powered two-wheeler segment, Hero Motocorp, on the other hand, has started working actively in the EV space as well. It is clear that the company wants to become a leader in the EV space as well. Hero is yet to launch its first EV.
But the company is working on its first electric scooter. Let us tell you that last year the company officially announced that the company can launch its first electric scooter in the market by March 2022. The two-wheeler maker also confirmed that its electric vehicle project is already in advanced stages.
Along with this, the company had said that the product would be manufactured at the Chittoor plant in the south Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Hero Motocorp has already given a glimpse of its electric scooter at the beginning of last year. In April last year, the company signed an agreement with Taiwanese company Gogoro to share battery swap technology and more features.
Hero’s first battery-powered scooter will more or less be based on the same concept that was shared earlier. While the final production-spec model is unlikely to get a single-sided swingarm, it is expected to feature full-LED lighting, fast charging, long range and swappable battery pack.
