Hero February 2022 Sales – Massive Drop in Scooters

Hero MotoCorp have already started creating big infrastructure to support their electric ambitions. They partnered with Taiwan’s Gogoro and we should be seeing battery swap feature, somewhere down the line.

The company have also shaken hands with Bharat Petroleum and will offer charging facilities in the vast network of the PSU. Aside that, we expect Hero’s first product to be feature loaded at an attractive price point – a strategy that has worked in the premium motorcycle segment for the brand. This is likely to give the brand ample traction to create a compelling case for buyers to transit to the new mode of transport.
