This will help manufacturers like us to expedite launches of products in new and emerging segments like popular and premium category motorcycles, higher range 2 and 3 wheelers as well as more customer-oriented products. He says that he is sure that India will eventually become the global hub for e vehicle manufacturing and is hopeful that as in the past, Maharashtra will once again become the Automobile capital", said Jitendra Shah.
