With the rise of fuel prices and the pollution in metropolitan cities, citizens are adopting electric vehicles. Electric vehicles not only reduce the tailpipe emissions but also save cash as the price of fuel in Mumbai is now closing to the INR 108/litre mark. The government of India is also offering various subsidies to electric vehicle manufacturers. In addition this the state governments are also offering additional incentives to accelerate EV adoption. Recently, an electric vehicle manufacturer that launched its scooters in the Indian market also appears to have the same initiative – accelerate EV adoption.
Hop Electric Mobility – OXO e-Motorcycle
We are talking about Hop Electric, a Rajasthan-based electric mobility company with its office and manufacturing plant situated in Jaipur. Recently Hop Electric launched two electric scooters in the Indian market, Hop Leo and Hop Lyf. Now the brand plans to expand its portfolio by adding another electric vehicle in the form of an electric motorcycle. Hop Electric Mobility is currently testing the Oxo electric motorcycle out on the public roads of Jaipur. This leads us to believe that the brand will soon launch the electric motorcycle in the Indian market.
