Bajaj: 10,742 units

Bajaj Auto has retailed 10,742 Chetak e-scooters in January 2024 and demand continues to increase for the Chetak – from 3,790 units in April 2023, monthly sales hit a high of 11,833 units in November last year.

With its January 2024 sales, Bajaj has outsold Ather Energy for the fourth month in a row – clearly, there is a stiff battle underway for this position in the coming months.  

Ramped-up production and an expanded Bajaj Chetak network, currently in 141 cities across India, is to be expanded to 250 cities by March 2024, should make Bajaj Auto a regular entry in the best-selling two-wheeler EVs monthly chart in India.

The company now plans to roll out its family scooter named Rizta on Ather Community Day, slated to be either in February or March. On the network front, Ather at present has over 175 experience centres across India and plans to add another 75 outlets by March 2024. 

In terms of monthly sales for January 2024, fifth position goes to Greaves Electric Mobility which clocked sales of 2,351 units. Hero MotoCorp, with 1,487 units sold last month, under the Vida brand, jumps to sixth place. It is followed by Bgauss Auto with 1,485 units.
