Hero Electric’s CEO, Sohinder Gill, stated that the new range of EVs has been designed with feedback from more than six lakh consumers. Gill also added that the new range of EVs comes with powertrains that have been developed to convert almost every drop of battery power into useful energy for the scooters.
“The secret lies in a super-intelligent close-loop sync system that senses in real-time, every little variation in the load and road condition to deliver just the right amount of energy without any wastage. Going by the popularity of the looks of our bikes, we have largely retained the outer designs and worked upon the bones and muscles to offer the new Avatars of our five lovable platforms that comprehensively cater to the entire spectrum of ‘Real value for money’ customers,” he added.
