In the words of Pankaj Sharma, Co-Founder of BattRE Electric Mobility,  “At BattRE, our belief is to focus on affordability, convenience & ease to our customers.

Commenting on the partnership, Lizzie Chapman, CEO & Co-founder of ZestMoney said, “We are excited to partner with BattRE at a time when demand for electric scooters is at an all time high. People are increasingly looking for EMI financing options to fuel their dreams. Current circumstances around COVID-19 also necessitate the need for contactless and digital means of credit. At ZestMoney, our fully automated and data driven loan disbursal model is  the best suited solution in these  times. Affordable financing options will play a crucial role in reviving demand as well.”

Post lockdown it will be a huge challenge to maintain physical distancing in overcrowded public transport. A majority of commuters might prefer personal mobility – as it will be safer & convenient to travel. According to a study conducted by Frost and Sullivan – e-rickshaws, e-autos, and e- two-wheelers are the most promising segments for electrification in India and are supposed to account for over 4-million sales by 2025. The study also suggests that 30-40 percent of scooters in the country will be electric in 7-8 years.
