The new range of Hero Electric scooters claims better tech capabilities as the top-of-the-line models get hibernating battery technology to offer more mileage and a synchronised powertrain that aims to improve vehicular diagnostics through the built-in software, including remote maintenance, ultimate battery life protection, and increased charging efficiency.
The company claims to have a manufacturing capacity of 5 lakh units (half a million) and plans to set up a greenfield plant at Rajasthan with an annual production capacity of 20 lakh units (2 million).
Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, said, “The extensive feedback from our 6 lakh bikes over 15 years has helped us design our new range of power trains that converts almost every drop of battery power into useful km. The secret lies in a super-intelligent close-loop sync system that senses in real-time, every little variation in the load and road condition to deliver just the right amount of energy without any wastage. Going by the popularity of the looks of our bikes, we have largely retained the outer designs and worked upon the bones and muscles to offer the new Avatars of our five lovable platforms that comprehensively cater to the entire spectrum of ‘Real value for money’ customers.”
Naveen Munjal, MD, Hero Electric, said, “After 15 years of unwavering commitment towards building India’s electric vehicle ecosystem, we are fully dedicated to realizing the country’s electric mobility mission. Our continuous efforts are focused on bringing this vision to life sooner rather than later. Each of our products has undergone an exhaustive R&D process with a primary focus on ensuring customer safety. In tandem with this, we have also worked closely with our partners to cater to the surging demand for EVs in the country. As a result, we are proud to announce that we are all set to roll out over 1 million vehicles annually from our manufacturing units.”
