Ba­jaj to Launch an EV by 2020

Bike India - - IGNITION -

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.
