The sales of electric two-wheelers increased by 72 per cent in September on a year-on-year basis, the Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV) said on Wednesday.

The registrations stood at 2,544 units last month as against 1,473 vehicles sold in September last year.

"We are experiencing huge customers' interest in green vehicles as buyers have seen how the environment feels when no fuel-guzzling vehicles are on roads," said SMEV Director General Sohinder Gill.
