Honda will first introduce the Activa electric, a scooter based on the current Activa model that has had its engine replaced with an electric motor. The scooter would feature a fixed battery configuration and a top speed of 50 km/h, according to information provided by Ogata. This might be the brand's safest move to enter the Indian EV market. The permanent battery configuration will offer a better working environment and protect the scooter from hazards like fire and other problems.

The upcoming Honda Activa electric is also expected to share the hardware and other components from its ICE sibling to keep the cost low. Honda Activa is one of the top selling scooter in India and the Activa EV can be a successful product for the brand in India as well as a tough competitor for the other EV scooters.

The company will create a new electric scooter based on a new platform and tailored especially for Indian conditions after the Active electric. The second electric scooter will be equivalent to the electric scooters currently available on the Indian market and feature swappable battery technology. We could have introduced EVs from China to the Indian market sooner, but we decided to focus on products designed exclusively for the Indian market, according to the CEO of the brand.

Before the second e-scooter is released, HMSI claims it will produce electric motors internally and will also install battery-swapping stations across all of its 6,000 consumer touch points in the nation. The majority of the company's investments in FY 20232024 will go toward making its manufacturing infrastructure compatible to produce ICE two-wheelers and EVs in the same plant in a hybrid format.

Verdict: Honda is one of the largest two-wheeler manufacturer in the Indian market. Starting in 2024, the brand will compete in India's EV market. Due to its widespread popularity, the Honda Activa electric is anticipated to be a strong rival for the market's current electric scooters.
