“While today our EV business is based on the two-and three-wheeler sections where a great deal of the underlying EV reception is occurring, the LCV classification is a promising space, wherein both laid out players as well as new companies are bringing their items. According to Wadhwa, “We see it becoming more attractive for electrification going forward.”
Strengthening in-house businesses Sterling GTake E-Mobility will spend the same amount of money on capital expenditures in FY24 through cash accruals and term debt, as it has so far invested Rs 28 crore in its EV business.
