New Delhi: Are you tired of spending too much money on your monthly petrol bills for your conventional two-wheeler? Do you want to save the environment and your wallet at the same time? If so, you should consider switching to an electric vehicle (EV) two-wheeler. EV two-wheelers are more cost-effective, eco-friendly and convenient to ride than traditional ones. They have lower maintenance costs, no emissions and can be charged at home or at public charging stations, apart from options of quick battery swapping terminals, as you go and save time.
In this article, we will introduce you to the top 5 EV two-wheelers you can consider this Independence Day :

● OLA S1 Air –
The Ola S1 Air is the most accessible Ola electric scooter on the market today, promising to provide the whole S1 experience while remaining economical. The S1 Air is built on Ola’s Gen 2 platform, which has undergone minor but noticeable alterations that have influenced the scooter’s appearance.
The Ola S1 Air now has a flat footboard, telescopic front suspension, drum brakes, and a new dual-tone paint scheme. The S1 Air sports twin shocks and a box-section swingarm at the back. The new suspension configuration may appear to be a step down in the design, but it appears to be a move away from the former suspension setup, which was prone to difficulties.
