In an interview to Economics Times, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) President Atsushi Ogata said that the company is examining the market for electric two-wheeler vehicles and consumers are “seeing to see a genuine HMSI EV product within the next financial year”. will be able to.” This clearly shows that Honda has realized that now is the right time to enter the electric two-wheeler market. It cannot be denied that with the increase in the price of petrol, the demand for scooters of the existing electric two-wheeler players in India is increasing.
As of now, Ogata hasn’t clarified which electric scooter HMSI is planning to launch, but if reports are to be believed, Honda has been testing one of its electric scooters – the BENLY e for quite some time now. It is possible that the BENLY e will be the first electric scooter from Honda to hit the market. However, whether it will come to India or not and how long the company will take for this, its information has not been shared at the moment.
Honda Motor is going to launch at least 3 electric scooters globally by the year 2024. The company’s focus is on daily commute as well as commercial use.
As we mentioned, electric scooters from many big brands are already making a splash in India. However, along with Honda, Hero is yet to come up with its own electric scooter. Hero has also confirmed that the company will launch its first electric scooter next year. There is no doubt that 2022 will prove to be exciting for the Indian electric two-wheeler market. While on one hand electric scooters like TVS iQube, Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak, Ola S1, Simple One are proving successful in grabbing the attention of customers. At the same time, next year, new scooters from two big two-wheeler brands can increase the tension for all these brands.<!–
