Hero Electric is currently the dominant player in the Indian electric two-wheeler market that has been experiencing a rise in demand in the recent past, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic that has prompted the consumers to opt for personal mobility instead of using shared mobility and public transport system. The two-wheeler manufacturer offers both high-speed and low-speed electric scooters in the Indian market.
