Spaking on the announcement, Sohinder Gill, CEO Hero Electric said, “The revision in subsidies on batteries and EVs overall under the FAME policy is just the move the industry needed to drive adoption of electric vehicles. Having had one of the best years in terms of sales despite the pandemic last year is a testimony that the market is ripe for a major push towards shifting towards a cleaner mobility solution. We have seen a major spurt in the adoption of our CITY SPEED SERIES in the last two years and with this additional subsidy, we expect a multifold increase in the sale of such models. With such industry friendly moves from the policy makers, we expect the market to further touch 5-7 million units on road over the next 5 years.”,
Randheer Singh, Senior Specialist, NITI AYOG said, “The Union Govt of India and its ministries are firmly committed to transforming the way the nation commutes. We have been in talks with all the stake holders in the industry and after numerous deliberations, we felt it announcing the amendments to the existing policy will help drive up adoption of electric two-wheelers in the country. The time is right for the country to make the shift to a cleaner mode of transport and free our cities from harmful pollutants emitting from fossil fuel vehicles.”
