Hero Electric has been in the electric two-wheeler business for about 12 years now. It was also the first brand to launch a lithium-ion-powered electric scooter in the country. At present, it has a massive presence of 600 touchpoints across the country. Hero plans to bring up the count to over 1500 in the next two years. That’s almost equivalent to a conventional motorcycle manufacturer’s dealer spread! In the next two months alone Hero plans to open 15 dealerships in the country.

Hero’s ambitions of spreading across the country will also give it a strategic advantage against new and upcoming players like Ather Energy, Evoke Motorcycles and the Twenty Two Kymco joint venture. Here’s Hero Electric’s press release about its expansion plans:
