We have been trying to enter this market for a very long time but were awaiting the right partner, right location, and a right time. We are entering the market at the most auspicious time of the year and couldn’t be more glad about the timing. Our scooters have been receiving phenomenal responses from across the country and also Siliguri, where we opened last year.
Now with the launch of Gen 3 with a bigger battery and improved performance, we witnessed a surge in queries regarding our vehicles from the people of the state. We are confident that people will appreciate our scooters’ engineering and performance. West Bengal is a crucial market for us and we have some exciting plans for the state as we expand across multiple cities.”
