Woohoo!! The valuation of the Electric Vehicles industry in India is estimated to touch $150 billion by 2030 at the rate of 90% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR).Fancied with this statement? The current market game suggests that EV sales account for barely 1.4% of total vehicle sales in India during 21-22. However, India's shift to shared, electric and connected mobility could help the country save nearly one giga-tonne of carbon dioxide emissions by 2030.
The EV market is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years, particularly Ecycles.

Electric two-wheelers in India are likely to achieve price parity with their petrol counterparts as early as 2027, according to a study done by International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT).
Electric scooters or Mopeds are definitely spearheading the E-revolution in India since the roadblocks for scooters are fewer. They are lighter as compared to cars, meaning they can use less powerful and cheaper batteries. Also, the scooters can be charged quickly and more easily, often using the existing plug points in homes. The price of these e-scooters is also at par with the petrol-powered models.
With Hero Electric and several start-ups including Twenty Two Motors, Okinawa, and Ather Energy selling electric scooters already, two-wheeler companies are carrying the baton.
The India ebike market is moderately fragmented, with the presence of a number of startups and companies such as Svitch, Hero Cycles, GoZero, Being Human, and Giant Bicycles Co. Ltd.

To provide a more convenient experience to customers, global ebike manufacturers like Aventon are expanding their market reach in India, and local companies are introducing new models in the market.
