Hero MotoCorp teases its first electric scooter

Hero MotoCorp's electric scooter will take on the Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak and the upcoming Ola e-scooter.

Hero MotoCorp has given us a glimpse of its upcoming electric scooter. It was teased during a live stream, celebrating the brand's 10th anniversary.

Hero MotoCorp's e-scooter appears to have a funky look - a design theme that we've seen on the Ather 450X and the Ola e-scooter as well. The scooter has telescopic front suspension and rides on 5-spoke alloy wheels.

While details about the new model are scarce, it is said that the company has been working on fixed as well as swappable battery technology, in collaboration with Taiwan-based Gogoro.

Earlier, Niranjan Gupta, CFO, Hero MotoCorp, had confirmed that the company was planning to launch its first electric 2-wheeler in Q1 2022.
