Royal Enfield’s electric vehicle plans first came to light back in 2018, when the company's president at the time, Rudratej Singh was quoted saying, “Royal Enfield has several projects in the pipeline and the electric platform is one of them. We are in an investment phase in the project where we have a team that is working on different ideas and concepts with a long-term focus. We will disclose our plans at an appropriate time."
