In keeping with the relentless pursuit towards its vision – Be the Future of Mobility – Hero MotoCorp, unveiled Vida, Powered by Hero, a brand-new identity for its emerging mobility solutions, including upcoming Electric Vehicles (EV).
Dr Pawan Munjal, the Chairman and CEO of Hero MotoCorp, also announced a US$100 Million Global Sustainability Fund. The fund will aim to establish global partnerships, spearheaded by the BML Munjal University (BMU) and Hero MotoCorp, to nurture more than 10,000 entrepreneurs on ESG solutions that have a positive impact on the planet.
Dr Munjal highlighted focused action points for bringing his vision
to life at an event, hosted at the Clarence Island in Dubai on March 3, 2022. Unveiling the new brand logo and the ‘sunrise’ visual identity of Vida, Dr Pawan Munjal said, “Vida means life, and the brand’s sole purpose is to create a positive impact on the world and move us all forward in meaningful ways. We believe the name is perfect for what we are building for our children and the next generation. This is truly the dawn of something special. In only 17 weeks from today, we will unveil our Vida platform, products and services to make the world a better place.”
“When I see our future generations, especially my grandchildren, all I want to do is build a future of optimism, a future of positive energy, a clean future, where everyone has something to look forward to and participate in something bigger and better. With the creation of ‘Vida’ we will offer everyone the opportunity to thrive, grow and live better while continuing to move the way they want. I will lead this initiative from the front,” Dr Munjal added.
As a central pillar of the future-ready strategy, Dr Munjal unveiled the new brand to lead the mobility transformation across the world. Vida will be the brand under which Hero MotoCorp’s initiatives for emerging mobility solutions will be introduced, the first of which will be an electric vehicle that will be officially unveiled on July 1, 2022, to coincide with the birth anniversary of Dr Brijmohan Lall, Chairman Emeritus of Hero MotoCorp.
The production of the new Vida model will be done at Hero MotoCorp’s manufacturing facility in Chittoor, India. Dispatches to customers will begin later in 2022.
