The dynamism of the electric two-wheeler industry is currently shared between new-age startups and OEMs, wherein on one side, we have performance-centric alternatives from Ather and Ola, and on the other side, TVS and Bajaj claim the crown of practicality. Well, the above statement could be debatable to some extent but not ignorable. Ampere, now owned by Greaves Cotton Ltd, taps into the e2W market to explore its potential and position itself firmly in the Indian market. I have recently experienced the company's flagship offering – Primus , at the company's manufacturing facility at Ranipet, Tamil Nadu. Is the experience worthy enough to power up the ambitions of the company, for whom exactly is this electric scooter, and does it pack enough potential to rule the market? Let's find out.
At Rs. 1.10 lakhs ( ex-showroom), Primus packs enough potential to make it a worthy contender in the electric two-wheeler market. The practicality quotient is also well justified. However, to establish itself among the already existing competitors is a bit of a tough nut to crack, but their first step into the EV game seems promising enough.
