At present, Greaves Electric Mobility manufactures electric two-wheelers under Ampere Vehicles brand and three-wheeler vehicles (e-auto and e-rickshaw) under the brands Ele and Teja. The EV maker has a revenue of more than $100 million (Rs 780 crore) annual.

The investment will be used to develop new products, associated technologies and brand awareness to make Greaves Electric a leader globally in the EV space. The company says this strategic investment marks a major milestone in the development of the electric two- and three-wheeler ecosystem in India, currently the world’s fourth-largest automotive market where the share of EVs in the two-wheeler and three-wheeler segments is expected to increase significantly. These segments are less dependent on commercial charging infrastructure, unlike passenger cars.
