Fully committed to the ‘No Emission’ mission, the company is investing heavily to develop innovative mobility solutions for the Indian market. Currently of all the products, the most popular models include Optima and Nyx. To meet the growing demand for electric two-wheelers in the Indian market which will further increase in the upcoming years, Hero Electric is planning to expand its production capacity from an existing 70,000 units to more than 2.5 lakh units. To cater to the demand in the East Indian market, the company recently opened a new hub in Patna which has a capacity to stock close to 2,500 scooters. Hero Electric understands how important it is to build a robust and wide charging infrastructure which is the most important aspect which helps in pushing customers to opt for electric vehicles over their fuel-powered counterparts.

The Effect Of Coronavirus Pandemic
The pandemic did a lot of damage to almost all the automotive companies across the world, but on the positive side, now most of these companies have shifted all their services to online platforms which are aiding the customers and potential customers alike. Hero Electric also had a makeover which resulted in most of their services like test-vehicle booking, vehicle booking, getting regular updates, and more to go online. With over 3 lakh electric vehicles and 12 years of experience in this segment, Hero Electric will look into adding more customers and thus play an important role in the development of the e-mobility of the country.
