One Chinese Scooter brand

 It has been almost a decade since electric scooters were introduced in Indian market. Most of the electric scooters which were launched in Indian market are of Chinese brand. However, the user experience was not good enough to grow in Indian market. There was a lot of negative feedback received from the customers like speed is not enough, engine is not quite powerful.

The main aim of Chinese manufacturer was to launch an electric scooter with less price so that more people can buy it. However, those electric scooters were not capable of resale due to their low quality.
