While the Magnus was previously priced at 74,990, buyers will now have to pay 47,990 for it in Gujarat. Similarly, Zeal was priced at 68,990 till recently but can now be bought for 41,990 (all prices are ex showroom). Commending the Gujarat state EV policy, Ampere Electric's Roy Kurian further elaborated on the cost benefits vis-a-vis petrol models. "This is an extraordinary move by the (Gujarat) government to make our well-build electric scooters more affordable and hence within easy access for a common man," he said. "It will help commuters optimize on petrol expenses in their conventional 2W’s. It will also help logistics players in B2B segments to save significantly on their transportation costs and rather utilize this money for business development."

Apart from range-related anxieties, the cost of buying an electric vehicle has been a deterrent for many in India. States like Gujarat, Delhi and Telangana have rolled out EV policies aimed at making such vehicles cheaper, while also chalking out plans of expanding support infrastructure. In the particular instance of Gujarat's EV vision, the state had announced up to 20,000 subsidy to electric two-wheeler buyers and up to 1.5 lakh subsidy to electric passenger vehicle buyers.
