India is one of several countries that have pledged to phase out gasoline and diesel-powered internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. These vehicles will be replaced by electric vehicles (EVs), which are more efficient than ICE alternatives, have zero emissions and require less maintenance. There are already many electric vehicles in the market, and with petrol prices skyrocketing in India, many people are opting to go fully electric.

While the electric four-wheeler segment has still not taken off, buyers have a variety of options in the two-wheeler market. An electric bike allows you to ride without having to look for a gas station. And this is a significant financial savings these days. Consider brands like Revolt, Joy, Torque, Cybor, and Komaki, all of which cater to the needs of EV riders.

Things to consider before purchasing:

Before you go out and buy an electric bike, there are a few things you should consider. They will help you choose the best electric bike for your needs, as well as help you make good financial decisions. So, before you put off shopping for your brand new electric bike, consider the following few points.

  1. Price, incentives, and tax benefits: The budget will obviously play a role in your purchasing decision, but it is even more important to research the incentives and tax breaks offered by the federal and state governments on the electric vehicle you are considering purchasing. When you have all of the facts, you can make the best financial decision when making the purchase.
  2. Technology, features, and style: By their very nature, electric vehicles are highly dependent on software, so be sure to purchase the bikes from a business that has a track record of providing timely updates. Make a list of the features you want your electric bike to have as well, and make sure the brand you choose offers the majority of those features, if not all of them. Finally, don’t forget to consider your vehicle’s level of style.
  3. Range, speed, and battery capacity: Electric bikes are frequently available in a variety of models, each with a different battery capacity and maximum single-charge range. Keep in mind that the rated range provided by the manufacturer is under ideal conditions, so make sure to buy only those electric bikes that offer at least 15-20% more range than your daily commute requirement. Another consideration is top speed, which varies greatly depending on the model.
  4. License requirement: The last consideration is whether you need a licence to operate the vehicle you plan to purchase. Most electric bikes did not require a licence to operate when they were first introduced to the market. However, you now need a licence because more and more businesses are releasing potent electric bikes. Check the vehicle’s licence requirements thus before purchasing.

Here are some of the most popular electric bikes available in India today-
