  • The Indian electric two-wheeler market has reported improved sales in July 2023.
  • This comes after a significant decline in sales due to increased prices.
  • Ola Electric, TVS Motor and Ather Energy continue to lead the market.
The revamped Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME) in India Phase 2 scheme and increased prices of electric two-wheelers resulted in a significant decline in sales in June 2023. While the prices have not been reduced, the sales have now slightly recovered in July, with major electric vehicle companies reporting an increase in sales.
