"We are confident that the new Hero Electric High Speed Photon will further augment our growth in the electric vehicle segment," Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gill said in a statement.

The company claimed that the electric scooter received positive feedbacks during test marketing in select markets. The scooter was unveiled earlier this year.

This product is the result of strong in-house development and years of research, the company said.

The company is targeting various customer segments including working women and senior citizens, it said.

The scooter comes with various features including front telescopic suspension, anti-theft alarm and aerodynamic style. Unlike a few other models in its class, the Photon requires its rider to have a license and complete registration for the two wheeler.
