E-scooter segment in top gear
05 Apr 2021

The electric two-wheeler (E2W) segment in the country has moved on to the fast lane, aided by government subsidy, rising fuel prices, and a decline in the cost of lithium-ion batteries. Several E2Ws launched in the past year are priced almost at par with those running on internal combustion engines (ICE), which have traditionally been the more affordable choice.

According to a recent report by Motilal Oswal Financial Services, the two-wheeler segment has witnessed considerable price inflation due to regulatory changes, and the cost to the customer has risen by around 25% till January 2021, compared to April 2018. At the same time, it adds, the cost of lithium-ion batteries has declined by about 24%. As per the report, e-scooters offer a 10-20% lower cost of ownership (on a per km basis), as compared to ICE scooters (both 100cc and 125cc).
