Electric two-wheeler: A decision of the government has come as a problem for electric two-wheelers. This is directly affecting the sale of electric scooters and bikes. In such a situation, it is being claimed that the sales of electric two-wheelers may be 20 percent less than. The sales target of one million units in the financial year 2022-23. Industry body SMEV said this would be mainly due to the subsidy being withheld by the government to the tune of about Rs 1,100 crore.
The Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV) said that sales of electric two-wheelers in 2022 were around 6 lakh units. During this period, three leading electric two-wheeler companies – Hero Electric, Ola, and Okinawa crossed the 1 lakh annual sales mark for the first time. These three companies dominated the market and captured more than 50 percent of the total market share.
SMEV said the market performance in 2022 is positive with sales of around 6 lakh units, but it is lower than the projections by NITI Aayog and several other research agencies. Sohinder Gill, Director General of SMEV, said that in the current financial year till December, about five lakh units were sold and the sales for the whole financial year maybe 20 percent less than the estimate of NITI Aayog. NITI Aayog has projected sales of 10 lakh units in 2022-23.
Union Heavy Industries Minister Mahendra Nath Pandey had said last month that the ministry had received complaints of misuse of subsidy under the FAME India Phase II scheme by some electric vehicle manufacturers. The government had received complaints regarding violations and these were sent to testing agencies for re-verification. After this, the models of both companies have been suspended from the FAME scheme.
