Bajaj Pulsar Electric Variant in the Works?


Bajaj Auto might finally be launching the Pulsar Electric bike in India. The company will also expand the Chetak range.

The enthusiasm for electric vehicles has been increasing in the Indian market. Despite several unfortunate fire incidents, electric two-wheelers have been quite quickly adopted by consumers. Multiple auto companies are working on introducing new EVs in India. This includes Bajaj Auto. Reportedly, the beloved Indian company is finally expanding its EV lineup with Pulsar Electric. Additionally, it plans to add three or four new models in the Chetak range in India. Here’s all we know about the Bajaj Pulsar Electric and New Chetak Models:

Multiple Bajaj EVs to Launch Soon

Bajaj Auto is all set to launch multiple electric two-wheelers in the coming years. It has established a new vertical for this purpose called the ‘Chetak Technology’. A second EV manufacturing plant at Arkudi, Pune was also inaugurated. Additionally, the Indian manufacturer has partnered with Yulu to get electric two-wheelers. Unfortunately, the semiconductor chip shortage has slowed down EV manufacturers around the world. It might take a little longer to see the new Bajaj EVs on the road everywhere.

Electric Bajaj Pulsar in the Offing?

The company might even bring an all-electric version of the Bajaj Pulsar bike. This would be a great move by the Indian brand. The Bajaj Pulsar is already extremely popular among Indian users. Its electric version would be a great addition to the brand’s range. Bajaj Auto is also planning to expand the Chetak range in India. We are likely to see three or four new models in the coming years. Additionally, the company plans to export the Chetak EVs. If all goes well, we might Bajaj Chetak EVs in South East Asian countries.

Majority Sales to Continue Coming from ICE Vehicles

It is to be noted that Rakesh Sharma (Executive Director, Bajaj Auto) had previously dismissed the hype around EVs in the Indian market. As a result, the company continues to focus on the ICE verticals. Since the majority of the auto sales are still expected to be ICE vehicles, it is a smart move by Bajaj to keep its EV and ICE verticals separate. Currently, the Indian government of India is pushing for the sale of electric vehicles in the country. It hopes to achieve 30 percent EV penetration in the market.
