The primitive electric scooters in India were not heavy on the pockets. The Yo Bike, for example, came at a starting price of INR 14,000. Of course, the performance was compromised, but that wasn’t the focus area back then. Today, performance matters. And hence, scooters like Ather and Ola easily are priced almost ten times more than our good old Yo Bike.
But, we are here to raise your spirits – the top 5 cheapest electric scooters in India in 2021.
