When the COVID-19 began to cause lockdowns across the globe, there was a substantial slowdown in sales in the Indian two wheeler market.

In 2020, because of COVID-19, the automotive sector witnessed a massive decline in the two-wheeler sales. The lockdown and restrictions affected the sales of two wheeler and it witnessed a decline of 13.11% due to the shutting down of factories, impacting the production capacity and the functioning of the supply chain.

The government of India imposed a lockdown in many parts of the country to control the spread of COVID-19. As a result, the domestic sales and export of two wheelers were paused for a certain period in India. Not only did Covid-19, disrupt the urban market but has also taken rural market in its grasp.

Because in rural area two wheeler is more popular because it is cost effective and the per capita income of rural households is low. Thus it affected the overall two wheeler market in the country.

The government has also launched the Fame-II Policy, which aims to promote the growth and adoption of electric vehicles. The battery swapping policy was introduced by the government to build up the infrastructure for electric vehicles. The government is also giving subsidies on electric vehicles and tax exemptions on purchasing electric vehicles.
