While electric two-wheeler sales are starting to shoot up in the country, Mahindra has said it still has no plans to enter the EV (electric vehicle) two-wheeler space anytime soon. In a press conference earlier Thursday, Anish Shah, MD and CEO of Mahindra Group, made this clear during a press meeet when asked about the prospects of his company entering the lucrative segment.

It isn't as if Mahindra's has not had a dab in the two-wheeler space before but it wasn't one of its shining moments. And the company seems to be taking a more measured approach this time with two-wheeler EVs.
