He added, “Combining Ampere’s and Bestway’s expertise will help in further boosting company’s growth and strengthen market positioning as leading E-Mobility business in India,”

Presence in the last mile E-Mobility

Through this acquisition, Ampere will expand its presence in the fast disrupting E-Rickshaw segment to become an integrated last mile E-Mobility player with presence in both E-2W and E-3W. E-Rickshaw is one of the largest and fastest growing category of electric vehicles in India.

The company foresees rapid growth in this segment as affordable mobility needs expand in the country and as post-COVID thrust towards employment generation increases at bottom of the pyramid. In addition to B2C segment, with this acquisition, Ampere will also be able to offer a complete product portfolio to its B2B customers who have requirements for E-3W as well for both people and cargo mobility.

BVR Subbu, Chairman, Ampere Vehicles, said, “Within two years of Ampere acquisition by Greaves, the company has grown phenomenally and has achieved several milestones thereafter to become a preferred and affordable E2Wheeler brand under personal mobility segment in the country. With the acquisition of Bestway, Ampere has now embarked on a new journey to provide clean, safe and sustainable shared mobility solutions through E-3Wheeler and become a leading player in building and strengthening the country’s EV ecosystem.”

Bestway has a strong B2C presence in the mass market passenger segment and has recently entered new segments of cargo carrier and B2B commercial mobility with custom-built applications.
