The average daily sales of electric two-wheelers (e2W) have increased around 100 per cent in the first 17 days of July over the same period last month.

According to data from the VAHAN portal of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), the average daily sales of e2Ws in the first 17 days of July surged to 1,702 units, against the average daily sales of 852 units in the corresponding period of June.
