Hero Electric partners ReadyAssist to offer service support to its B2B customers
Electric two-wheeler maker Hero Electric has partnered with roadside assistance firm ReadyAssist to provide service support and annual maintenance to its B2B customers. Through this initiative, the EV maker will be able to increase the uptime of customer e-bikes while providing quick and efficient service support to fleets deployed in last-mile delivery. The two companies had earlier collaborated for training and upskilling 20,000 mechanics in EV skill sets across the country.
Hero Electric believes that through this initiative, it will be able to strengthen its after-sales services to ensure a hassle-free experience for both D2C and B2B customers. “The initiative focuses on empowering and increasing awareness for EVs, further encouraging people towards cleaner mobility," said Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gill.

The first 50 units are already in production and will be delivered by next month. Additionally, Hero Electric will also deliver 500 EVs which will be deployed by EVIFY in multiple Tier-II and Tier-III cities by the end of the year. The company recently also partnered with Even Cargo and announced deployment of 10,000 electric vehicles.
