Hero Electric is currently the largest electric two-wheeler brand in India. In June this year, the company announced its plan to expand its existing facility to produce more than 3 lakh EVs every year to meet surging demand. Also, it is targeting a 100% growth this year over 2020.

In recent times, state governments like Maharashtra, Gujarat have announced their respective EV policies. These EV policies encourage consumers to buy electric vehicles by offering demand incentives. The incentives come over and above the central government's FAME II scheme. Hero Electric believes such policies will further boost demand for electric two-wheelers.

Commenting on the company's sales performance in the first six months of 2021, Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric has said that the EV maker is extremely bullish about the market seeing its biggest growth thanks to conducive market and policies since they were announced. "The green shoots for this are visible in the numbers we have achieved in the month of July and overall, in the first half of the year. Our manufacturing facilities are working overtime to cater to the demand."
