Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Oppo is planning to enter the automotive industry by launching a sleek and stylish new electric scooter in the Indian market.
According to reports from 91mobiles, Oppo plans to launch OPPO EV electric scooter in India in 2023 and 2024. Tipster Yogesh Brar has revealed some details about the rumored OPPO EV. According to the tipster, the development of the electric vehicle is in its infancy. This means that the launch schedule is currently uncertain and it can be expected to launch a bit late.

The tipster also shredded the details about the price of the OPPO EV electric scooter. According to him, Oppo is expected to price this electric scooter around Rs 60,000. Which is way below the price of most electric scooters in the Indian market. If the electric scooter really falls into such a price category, it will make a big difference.
Reports suggest the company is in talks with the manufacturer for the battery and other components. Some of these manufacturers also supply parts to premium brands like Tesla. According to recent reports, the company filed various electric vehicles with other BBK Electronics subsidiaries Realme, OnePlus, and Vivo in 2018.
If Oppo brings the EV to market, the company could be the first Chinese tech company to enter India’s EV space.
Oppo could also launch a Tata Nano as an electric car in India
The company is also reportedly working on a Tata Nano, like a compact car. Let us tell you that the Tata Nano was launched as a low-cost car and if Oppo really launches its compact car, it will probably make it quite affordable as well. This means that Oppo mainly designs its electric car and scooter for ordinary Indians.
