Hero Electric rolled out the first batch of electric scooters from Mahindra’s Pithampur plant. This is a part of its 5-year partnership with Mahindra that aims at growth and expansion to cater to the demand for E2Ws in the country. Under this collaboration, Hero will manufacture two of its popular Hero electric bikes – Optima and NYX at Mahindra’s Pithampur plant. Along with sharing space to build vehicles, this partnership will also provide an interface to jointly work and develop the supply chain for all new electric offerings.
Furthermore, both companies will strengthen this alliance and share their R&D expertise to develop newer technologies to enter the overseas market. The two companies have worked hard for seamless integration of the manufacturing process. The aim is to offer the customer the same level of global quality produced from the Ludhiana plant. Hero Electric, alongside Mahindra, has also tied up with 20 other partners. This includes partnerships in the field of charging, servicing, rapid charging, swapping and more. These collaborations will build a solid foundation to build a robust EV ecosystem not only for Hero Electric but for the whole EV category.
Hero Electric – India’s Largest Electric Two-Wheeler Company
With the demand growing strong, Hero Electric is fully prepared to meet its customers’ expectations. Being one of India’s oldest EV makers, Hero Electric already has a wide dealership network. As of today, the company has its presence in over 750+ (and rapidly expanding) sales and service outlets spread across the country. In the future, Hero Electric will also build a widespread charging network and train roadside mechanics on EVs. With over 4.5 lakh electric two-wheelers in India, Hero Electric has been delivering sustainable travel solutions over the past 14 years. Keeping this in mind, we expect Hero Electric to continue with its services and further expand its reach.
