Ampere Vehicles to sell its electric scooters via Flipkart
Ampere Vehicles earlier announced their new tie-up with Flipkart, which would enable the EV maker to sell its e-scooters via the e-commerce giant’s platform. The Greaves Electric Mobility electric sub-division, Ampere Vehicles, has started selling the Ampere Magnus EV electric scooter on Flipkart now. Other Ampere products are expected to go on sale later.
The company will initially offer this new service in select cities of Bangalore, Jaipur, Kolkata, and Pune. After an order is placed, the nearest Ampere dealership will get in touch with the buyer and will take on further processes pertaining to vehicle insurance, RTO registration, and additional delivery details. State-wise subsidies and benefits for owning an electric vehicle will also be extended to the customers.
Ampere claims to deliver the vehicle within 15 days of purchase on Flipkart.
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Flipkart and expand the distribution of Ampere Electric scooters range to wider pockets of consumers,” CEO and Executive Director at Greaves Electric Mobility, Sanjay Behl, said in a statement.
