Bajaj to Launch an EV by 2020
RAJIV BAJAJ, CEO, BAJAJ AUTO LIMITED, HAS RECENTLY REVEALED PLANS to introduce new-age electric two-wheeler models in the next couple of years. The electric two-wheeler range would probably be launched under the new Urbanite brand the company spoke about in the recent past.
Speaking to a business channel, Rajiv Bajaj revealed that the company is in line with the new BS-VI regulations and, later, around 2030, will also align themselves to the Indian government’s plan of going all-electric. In the interview Bajaj said that 2020 would be an appropriate time to launch their first electric two-wheeler in India, adding that with stricter emission norms, the vehicles will have to be equipped with new-age technologies that would increase the two-wheeler production cost.
Most electric two-wheelers introduced in India have been scooters thus far. Therefore, it will be interesting to see if Bajaj decide to re-enter the scooter game.
