He added that the company is looking to expand electric portfolio and there will be more product launches in the segment, going ahead.

Asked about the company's investment plans in the electric vehicle space, Goenka said the company has already invested 500 crore and has also committed another 600 crore for the vertical.

"We are also raising the production capacity. From 500 units a month, it will go up to 1,000 units in a couple of months and around 5,000 units in a couple of years," Goenka said.

The company will also take a call on which models from its current product portfolio could be given electric makeover.

Powered by a 120 Ah battery, the five-seater e-Alpha Mini can travel 85 kms on a single charge and can hit a top speed of 25 kmph.

After NCR, the company plans to launch it in Lucknow followed by Kolkata and other parts of the country.

"The launch of the e-Alpha Mini is yet another step to provide an emission free, green mode of safe intra city transportation in the country," said Rajan Wadhera, M&M president, automotive sector.
