In January this year, Snapeal.com became the first Indian e-commerce site to start selling vehicles online in partnership with Auto manufacturers. Mahindra & Mahindra was the first company to come on-board.
While the idea of buying vehicles online may sound outrageous to a few, Snapdeal has been quite successful with it. Though we do not have confirmed reports, M&M seem to have sold quite a few two-wheelers online.
Seeing this success, HERO seems to have jumped the online fray as well. They have partnered with Snapdeal.com and have started selling their electric two wheelers. What’s more, as an introductory launch, they are offering some great discounts as well.
It is interesting that HERO has listed only their electric bikes and not their regular line of bikes. This is probably because HERO sees Snapdeal as a much better channel to push their eco-friendly electric bikes rather than traditional high-end sport bikes that they have. Online buyers are probably the best-fit customers who understand concept of electric bikes.
