At the moment, solely two legacy two wheeler manufacturers – Bajaj Auto and TVS Motors – have a big presence within the electrical two wheeler area, which is dominated by start-ups reminiscent of Okinawa, Ather and Ola. Quickly, all this can change as practically each legacy two wheeler model will launch aggressive electrical scooters. Yamaha has confirmed plans that it is engaged on electrical scooters for India, and so has Suzuki.

Even TVS Motors has a major stake in Ultraviolette, a high performance electric two wheeler company headquartered at Bangalore. Once legacy players enter the electric two wheeler space, it would be interesting to see how start-ups cope. Legacy players come with decades of engineering, manufacturing and distribution experience, and are likely to give EV start-ups an enormous run for their money.
