Hero Electric Begins Construction Of Second Manufacturing Plant In India To Produce 2 Lakh Vehicles

Country’s leading electric scooter company, Hero Electric has begun to build its second manufacturing plant adjacent to the existing facility in the country in Ludhiana, Punjab. Hero Electric Managing Director Naveen Munjal was quoted as saying, “We are very excited to announce our new manufacturing facility in Ludhiana given the exciting growth phase for the EV market. India’s EV revolution rides on two wheels making this the perfect time to expand and grow,”

The proposed greenfield plant would be established up on 10 acres of land with a yearly production capacity of two lakh vehicles. The upcoming greenfield plant will aid in delivering the best mobility solution and catering to the spurred demand for electric two-wheelers, he added.

“The facility will boost our vision of moving the world to sustainable mobility solutions. This is our second facility, and as we march ahead, we will invest in expanding capacities to achieve the target of 1 million capacities by 2025,” Munjal said.

The declaration of a new facility follows months after the company announced increasing its yearly production capacity to one million units in the next three years. The plant will be a hub for building new battery design and development and futuristic products.

On July 4, the strategic partnership of Hero Electric with Mahindra Group had assumed the shape of e-scooters. The first batch was rolled out from the stable of Mahindra Group in Pithampur in Madhya Pradesh. Both the companies had forged a partnership of five years to cater to the growing demand for electric two-wheelers in the country. The company is eyeing selling half a million e-scooters.

The strategic partnership laid down that Hero Electric will manufacture two of its e-bikes –Optima and NYX — at Mahindra‘s Pithampur plant. Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric said, “We strongly believe in like-minded strategic partnerships to offer “true value for money” products in electric mobility. Our 20 plus strong relationships with preferred partners in the field of charging, servicing, rapid charging, swapping etc are helping us build a robust EV ecosystem not only for us but for the whole EV category.”
