The Top 5: Electric Motorcycles to Buy in India Under Rs 1.5 Lakh

India is poised to become the largest EV market by 2030, with a total investment opportunity of over USD 200 billion over the next 8-10 years. The country is the world’s largest manufacturer of electric 2-wheelers (e2w) and electric 3-wheelers (e3w). Being the largest manufacturer, especially in the e2w category, fits the Indian scenario well – e2w vehicles dominate the Indian automobile market, accounting for over 70 percent of all registered vehicles. This share is expected to rise to over 80 percent by 2030. Electric two-wheeler companies in India have already begun manufacturing electric bikes across various categories and price ranges. Thanks to the overall decrease in EV battery prices over the past few years, buying an electric bike is no longer a costly affair. In this blog, we explore the top 5 electric bikes (e motorcycles) available in India for under INR 1.5 lakh.
