Rise of petrol prices boosting sales of electric two-wheelers in India 

The rise in fuel prices has boosted the sales of the electric two-wheelers as consumers are looking for alternatives. If we take an example of Maharashtra from December 2020 to March 2021, registrations for HS E2Ws increased by 94.16% and in the same period, registrations for ICE 2-wheelers declined by 18.4%. The rise in the petrol prices increases from INR 89.16/litre to a high of INR 97.57/litre in the last 3 months and as of today its Rs 107.83 (per Litre) in Mumbai, Rs. 105.83 in Hyderabad, Rs 102.49 in Chennai and Rs 102.08 in Kolkata and New Delhi it is costing Rs 101.84. There are at least 25-30 cities where petrol price has crossed Rs 100 per litre. Similar is with diesel prices too such as Rs 97.45, Rs.94.39, Rs 93.02 in Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.

If we take the example of Mumbai petrol price Rs 107.83 (per litre)X 365 days=Rs.39,357.95 (for one year). That was the calculation for only 1 litre and if you use more than one litre a day then you need to spend more money on petrol. For example, if you use 2 litres a day, then the calculation will go on as Rs 215.66 X 365= Rs.78,715.9.
