The company says that to lead the way to electrification, it’s readying a complete portfolio of two and three-wheelers in the range of 5-25kW, all of which will be in the market within the next 24 months.

The companies hold that the rapid proliferation of these charging stations through their partnership will broaden both the companies’ horizons and expedite India’s net-zero emission goals.
