Update On Hero’s Upcoming Electric Scooter
With high demand for electric vehicles across the country, Hero is preparing itself to enter the market. Under the brand name Vida, the two-wheeler maker has big plans in the electric mobility segment.
The plan was to launch the scooter in March 2022. But then the company delayed the launch date to July 2022. As per the latest reports, the launch date has further been shifted to September 2022. Thus, the chances are high that the electric scooter will arrive at the showrooms around the festive season. Hero says the ongoing semiconductor shortages as one of the reasons for the delay. Furthermore, the ongoing issues in the supply chain are also causing delays.
