Hi Bird, a Ludhiana based company(Also the largest exporter of bicycles) has launched its electric scooters recently and as per the claims made by the same, its scooters are capable of performing beyond your expectations. The move made by this new brand might seem to be a risk, but taking into account the potential their new scooters carry, the risk is well justified.
At the occasion R.D. Sharma, chairman, Hi Bird Group of Industries, said, “New electric scooters in line with the go-green goal have been launched to complement efforts to reduce air polluting vehicle emission.” He added, “We will sell our electric scooters through 100 new outlets across the country and not through our existing bicycle dealerships. The batteries used in the scooters will be imported from Korea and Taiwan for assembling in our manufacturing facility in Ludhiana”
In all probability the recent subsidies of Rs.4,000 on low-speed electric two-wheelers and Rs. 5,000 for high-speed electric two-wheelers, provided by the Indian Government has led to such opportunities for small manufacturers.
