Ampere Electric, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Greaves Cotton, has recently joined hands with CredR to launch a new exchange offer. Under the new program, the customers will be able to exchange their used petrol-powered two-wheelers for battery powered Ampere scooters.
Customers will be able to avail this offer by giving a visit to the nearest Ampere dealership and get their currently owned vehicle inspected. Post the inspection, CredR will offer instant quotes for old petrol scooters, bringing down the upfront purchase cost of the new Ampere Electric's scooters.
