As part of its 360-degree mobility solution, Hero Electric will provide service support through its 600+ dealer network along with a dedicated relationship manager and technical team for maximum uptime. The company recently launched Nyx-HX under the “City Speed” variants, which promise low running cost, high load-carrying capability, intercity range, and various other customizable features.
Founded in 2017, Mumbai-based eBikeGO offers electric bikes on subscription in five cities that include Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Amritsar, and Jaipur. The electric mobility start-up started with 640 users in 2017 and is now providing mobility solutions in eight cities to more than 18,000 users, has covered over 4 million km, and claims to have saved over 1,92,000 kg of carbon emissions. The IoT-powered electric bikes offer pollution-free and low-cost rides with a speed of 55 km/hr with a charge of two hours.
