With the growing number of electric vehicles, India has become one of the largest markets in the EV segment. The electric mobility sector is also gaining popularity as more and more companies join in and launch their products. Interestingly, there’s also a segment of EVs that do not need registration. One can ride one of these without having a driving licence. These electric vehicles fall under the low-speed category.
