Customers can get a refund of the booking amount only if the ongoing nationwide lockdown is extending beyond June. Once the lockdown is lifted, customers can take the delivery of the electric vehicles before June end.
Hero Electric has a wide range of electric scooters including the Flash, Nyx, Optima, Photon, Dash and also the ER (Extended Range) variants along with Glyde and E-Cycle, which are also powered by high-quality lithium-ion batteries. The company had showcased its new products at Auto Expo 2020.

In the next 3 years, the company would ramp up the production capacity of its electric scooters to 5 lakh units annually, with a focus on low-speed scooters for last-mile connectivity.
