The buzz about Ola’s upcoming electric scooter has turned the attention towards electric scooters. While only a few make it to the limelight, here are some others with long-range batteries.
Two-wheeler Electric Vehicles (EVs) are not only better for the environment but are also more affordable in comparison to motorcycles that run on petrol or diesel. Many people are of the view that battery operated two-wheelers will require frequent charging and won’t be able to cover long distances. However, this notion is not true.
