Companies’ performance

There were other companies such as TVS, Ather, and Ampere Vehicles which reached the top of the list after Ola Electric until May 2023 when it was followed by TVS, Ather, and Ampere Vehicles. TVS sold 17,856 electric scooters, Ather sold 14,522 electric scooters, and Ampere sold 8,235 electric scooters.

TVS competes with Ola Electric

The TVS company within the automotive group said that in May 2023 he sold 17,856 electric scooters and Ola Electric sold 26,154 electric scooters. In the coming months, sales of TVS’s electric scooter, the TVS i-Qube electric, could surpass sales of the Ola S1 Pro. Because TVS cars are always one of Indian people’s favorites. However, since electric vehicles entered the automotive industry, Ola Electric has gained widespread popularity in the electric vehicle sector. However, after the launch of the TVS i-Qube ST, TVS EV sales may exceed Ola EV sales.

Impact of FAME II Funding Policy Revisions

According to the latest reports, the Indian government has decided to reduce FAME II subsidies to EV customers and manufacturers. Therefore, many people will buy electric scooters in May 2023. This has led to a surge in electric scooter sales over the past month. Sales figures for June 2023 are also expected to decline. The reason prices are expected to rise is that the FAME II subsidy level for EV manufacturers will be reduced to 15% for EVs. This could lead to higher EV prices.
