Over the last few years, new age two-wheelers and EVs have been gaining traction in India on the back of growing interest towards sustainable mobility options, government subsidies and a wider selection available. Flipkart is using innovative ways to popularize online purchase of two-wheelers and conducted its first-ever Live Commerce event called ‘The Auto Hour Live’ during the festive season in October which saw participation of thousands of viewers.
