In April 2024, the electric two-wheeler market witnessed a downturn, with sales totaling just over 64,000 units. This dip reflects the usual trend for April, marking the beginning of the new fiscal year, where sales typically start slow. However, this year, several factors have contributed to the subdued performance, including the recent reduction in subsidies leading to price hikes by major manufacturers such as TVS, Bajaj Auto, Ather Energy, and Hero MotoCorp.

Despite these challenges, let’s now delve into the top 10 OEMs that have managed to maintain strong sales performance amidst these conditions:

TVS Motor Co secured the second position with sales of 7,653 units. The company witnessed a negative 71% month-on-month decline in sales, likely attributed to the recent price hikes.

Hero MotoCorp has slipped to the seventh position in April, recording sales of only 946 vehicles.
