Electric Two-wheeler Sales Report August 2023
Electric two-wheeler sales which had witnessed a significant decrease in June this year, are slowly and gradually growing and have experienced an incredible increase in August despite the FAME II subsidy reduction. August has turned out to be an incredible month for the E2W industry in India and is back on track with total sales of almost 60,000 EVs despite the 25% subsidy reduction.
With the reduction of FAME II subsidy from 40 to 15 percent, the immediate impact on the electric vehicle ecosystem in India was a significant rise in price and a decline in sales. In order to address the situation and increase sales, many of the EV manufacturers introduced a range of affordable vehicles. This move was a fantastic effort to draw in more customers. It introduced a new wave in the EV Industry and led to an increase in sales this month.
