Following the review of FAME II subsidies and the update of Gujarat’s EV policy, Ampere electric scooters are now available for less than 50,000 euros.
Along with range anxiety, a major concern for those considering purchasing an electric scooter has always been the cost of the vehicle itself. Now that the Fame II policy has been revised and various state governments have introduced state-specific EV policies, things are starting to improve. Just last month, Gujarat’s EV policy was announced shortly after the FAME II grant review. The current price revision
With this, Ampere electric scooters are now available at a retail price below Rs 50k. Recent price revisions could prove to provide the boost needed to make electric scooters a viable daily commute option.
Ampere Vehicles is an electric mobility company of Greaves Cotton Limited. A price revision means that even big Ampere Electric scooters are now listed below the price of 50,000. Compared to prices in the scooter segment, this might be just the necessary prompt.
Gujarat EV Policy
Gujarat EV Policy has helped manufacturers of electric two-wheelers revise prices in the state to improve their market appeal. Ampere Electric values ââthese initiatives as they fuel the growth of such mobility solutions for last mile connectivity.
|Amp electric scooter||New price (Ex-Gujarat)||Old Price (Ex-Gujarat)||Diff|
|Zealous||41 990||68 990||-27,000|
The current sentiment regarding the use of two-wheelers is being watched closely by millions of people as the price of gasoline regularly hits the $ 100 mark. Roy Kurian, COO, Ampere Electric, said: âThis will help commuters optimize their gasoline expense in their conventional 2W. It will also help logistics players in B2B segments to save significantly on their transportation costs and instead use that money for business development.
Ampere Magnus and Zeal electric scooters
Ampere Magnus and Zeal can reach a top speed of 55 km / h. Autonomy is indicated at 75 km when fully charged. Depending on mobility needs, the duration can be 2 good days. Since the start of operations, Ampere Electric has built its customer base to over 80,000 people. Ampere Magnus was previously listed for Rs 74,990 and is now available at the revised price of Rs 47,990. The Zeal Electric Scooter was previously listed at Rs 68,990 and does not cost Rs 41,990.
Electric vehicle policy revisions may well be the boost the electric vehicle industry needs. The more timely they are, the more beneficial they are. The growth potential of the electric vehicle industry is a natural course of events as the world transitions to carbon neutrality and shrinking carbon footprints. This potential is proving to be a springboard for many manufacturers.
The electric vehicle industry, especially the two-wheeler market, has seen a large number of new generation manufacturers enter the segment in recent years. This includes a series of tech companies and others that have embarked on the EV journey. The market continues to see new manufacturers entering the foray pointing to a future that could be very different from the current two-wheeler market.
Modern policies on electric vehicles set a target for reducing carbon emissions. At the same time, political guidelines encourage entrepreneurs to venture into the field of electric mobility. This could see the light of day thanks to the establishment of charging stations, which are today a key area of ââintervention. A robust EV charging network will increase the convenience of the EV industry. The government has announced that the execution of the current plans will help reduce CO2 emissions by around six lakh tonnes over the next 4 years.
