Hero MotoCorp has already revealed its intention to launch electric two-wheelers, but it has not disclosed any product-related information to date. Hero MotoCorp Chairman Pawan Munjal has shared a glimpse of his first electric scooter during the company’s 10th-anniversary celebrations. It is said that it will enter production in India very soon.
On 12 November, The Company Officially Confirms that it will be launching its first battery-powered scooter in the Indian market by March 2022.
The electric scooter seen in the video comes in dual-tone colors of white and black. First impressions, it looks bigger than the electric scooter currently available and feels practical too. The seat has a split design which hints that the scooter comes with a swappable battery.
At the front, we can see disc brakes and an alloy wheel with telescopic suspension.
While it looks like it is equipped with 12-inch tires at the front, the rear one looks to be equipped with a slightly smaller 10-inch tire. As of now, we don’t have any information on battery capacity, range, price, or availability.
Hero MotoCorp recently announced a Partnership with Taiwan-based Electric Vehicle maker Gogoro.
Gogoro is known for its battery-swapping technology and has the largest battery-swapping network in the world. Hero MotoCorp, on the other hand, is the largest shareholder in Ather Energy which sells the 450x and 450 Plus with non-removable battery packs.
In partnership with Gogoro, Hero MotoCorp will bring Gogoro’s advanced battery swapping platform to India. Along with this, the company will also work on a fast-charging network. Other old brands – Bajaj and TVS launched their electric scooters with non-removable batteries.
