This changeover is not just about the vehicle technology shifting from internal combustion to electric. The entire distribution and aftermarket ecosystem has to transition from fragmented and real estate heavy to digital and organised. Kumar's joining will help to define and establish a new-age digital and doorstep focused maintenance and aftermarket ecosystem for all brands of e2Ws.”

The company aims to enable one million electric 2Ws within the next 5 years and aims to build a circular economy of these EV.
