Stop FAME2's stepmotherly treatment for slow scooters!

India’s electric two-wheeler manufacturer Hero Electric has appealed to the government to take a re-look at the government’s FAME II scheme, or Faster Adoption and Manufacture of Electric (and Hybrid) Vehicles, since it has not helped low cost electric vehicles pick up sales, as that is the segment which contributes to maximum volumes in the electric vehicle category, and not premium electric vehicles. According to Hero Electric, while the FAME II scheme was aimed to promote adoption of electric vehicles, the government needs to include low speed two-wheelers, as these cost effective vehicles are essential for mass adoption of electric vehicles.

We at PlugInCaroo feel that lack of support for slow scooters was a MAJOR SETBACK for the Governement’s EV Policy. FAME2 took 1 step ahead and 3 steps back. FAME2 was out and out support for Li-Ion batteries. This step motherly treatment of supporting one technology and ignoring other technology is wrong. LET THE MARKET DECIDE for heaven sake!
