Bajaj Auto India is said to be working on the development of a brand new battery-powered electric scooter. According to reports, the new electric scooter from Bajaj is expected to be launched in India before 2020.
Bajaj Auto, MD, speaking to shareholders at the 11th annual general meeting (AGM)s tated, "Urban electric mobility is an area which is risky because not many companies have ventured there so far but it is even riskier not to be there. There I can definitely confirm that in addition to the electric work we do on three-wheeler and four-wheeler we are working very strongly on electric two-wheelers. It could be an electric motorcycle as we are a motorcycle company. It could be an electric scooter."
The new electric two-wheeler from the company once launched will be part of the Bajaj Urbanite brand. Talking about the timeline for the launch of its electric two-wheeler, Bajaj mentioned that the product will be introduced in the Indian market before the BS-VI emission norms come into effect. Bajaj also stated that the new product will be ‘the most beautiful electric two-wheeler in the world'. The company is also said to be working on the electric three-wheeler. This will be launched alongside their electric version of the Qute, which is currently sold in the international markets.
