The electric two-wheeler segment in India is constantly expanding with new additions from leading automakers. India has also become a hub for electric mobility startups like Ather Energy and Okinawa who are disrupting the market with their innovative offerings. The new electric scooters are full of technology that we have never seen on two-wheelers before. Moreover, consumers and automakers need to switch to electric mobility for a sustainable future as fuel burning has contributed a lot to climate change. Unlike the old days, e-scooters now mean performance and comfort. Therefore, you may consider an electric scooter as your next ride. Here are the best electric scooters in India to buy in 2021.
