    Hero MotoCorp to launch electric scooter by March 2022

    Hero MotoCorp is gearing up to launch its very first electric scooter by March 2022.

    • Prototype was shown virtually in August

    • Will be built in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh

    • Multiple more EVs to follow suit later

    Back in August this year, as part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, Hero MotoCorp virtually showed off a prototype of its upcoming electric scooter. The company has now stated that it will launch its maiden e-scooter by March 2022.

    From the brief glimpse that we got in August, Hero’s e-scooter does not seem to share much with e-scooters from Gogoro, with whom the company has partnered for battery-swapping EVs in India. It sports a fairly conventional scooter silhouette, a seemingly mid-mounted motor, and a single-sided rear suspension.

    Hero says that the new e-scooter will be manufactured at its plant in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh that’s aptly called the ‘Garden Factory’. This is the youngest of Hero’s plants at the moment, having commenced operations in March 2020.
