Two-Wheel Vehicles Market in India

Currently, the new growth point for the two-wheeler industry is electric scooters and motorcycles. Many of the leading manufacturers have already started the production of electric vehicles.

The Indian government has set a goal to electrify a major part of India's two-wheelers and has provided considerable financial incentives.

More investment in the electricity infrastructure, especially the renewable energy sector, could potentially accelerate the process.
