Electric two-wheeler maker BGauss Auto Pvt Ltd plans to invest around 40 crore to double the production capacity of its electric two-wheelers to two lakh units annually by next year. The company plans to have five to six electric offerings in its product portfolio of high-speed electric scooters after two years. It is also eyeing around 8-10 per cent of the fast-growing electric two-wheeler market in three years' time.

With plans to sell around one lakh units in the ongoing fiscal, BGauss Auto is now gearing up to increase its capacity to meet future demand. "This year we are targeting (to sell) around 80,000 to 1 lakh vehicles," BGauss Auto Founder and Managing Director Hemant Kabra told PTI.
