Auto Expo 2018 is seeing a lot of enthusiasts visiting and one of the key areas of focus this time is the electric two wheeler space. One of the most interesting two-wheelers from the electric two-wheeler territory have made their presence felt at Auto Expo 2018 and some of them have been launched for the country. Emflux One has showcased its first product that goes by the name Model One and it looks good enough to put even some of the middleweight motorcycles to shame. TVS has also showcased an interesting electric scooter concept called the Creon and its looks seem to have taken inspiration from the company's racing heritage. UM has also displayed its Renegade Thor that happens to be world's first ever production electric cruiser and it has taken the centre stage at the company's stall. Honda has also showcased its electric PCX scooter but there is a very little chance that the said offering will make it to India anytime soon. Here is a detailed description of the top five electric bikes and scooter that are on display at Auto Expo 2018.
