In December 2023, electric two-wheeler sales reached a record level

Electric two-wheelers continue to dominate the EV market


In December 2023, the Indian market for electric two-wheelers saw a mix of positive and negative trends among different companies. While some celebrated growth, others experienced unexpected dips. The electric vehicle industry is continually growing due to the needs and innovations of customers, and the true results are reflected in sales reports. Therefore, let’s take a closer look at the top 10 electric scooter and bike sales data for December 2023.

 

Sales data for the 10 most popular electric scooters 

Based on the overall sales reports of electric vehicles, it appears that the Electric two-wheeler category continues to dominate the EV market, largely due to its affordability. There are approximately 175 players in this category, and they managed to sell 841,727 units in CY2023 (till December 27), marking a 33% YoY growth (CY2022: 631,463 units). This is an impressive increase when compared to CY2021’s 156,368 units, as CY2023 experienced a significant 438% increase in just over three years. This remarkable growth reflects the substantial demand for Electric two-wheelers, and it continues to position this category as the clear leader in the EV market.

Although the upfront cost of purchasing an electric scooter or motorcycle is still greater than that of a petrol-powered one, more and more riders are choosing to switch to electric vehicles due to their cost-effectiveness in the long run. In addition, there is a continuous demand for last-mile deliveries in both urban and rural areas, which is driving sales of electric cargo two-wheelers, and many EV manufacturers are benefiting from bulk orders.

The electric scooter market witnessed fierce competition in December, with companies vying for the top spot. Despite facing a decline, Ola Electric retained its leadership position with a 1.03% month-over-month (MoM) growth, inspiring us to keep pushing forward even during tough times. TVS IQube and Bajaj Chetak faced setbacks, but their perseverance is a testament to the fact that success is not always easy, but it’s always worth it.
