Sabnis looks after overall strategy, developmental work and partnerships. Ranjita Ravi, an MBA from ESSEC Business School, Paris, looks after investor relations and business development. Electric vehicles are getting a lot of interest among Indian consumers. In the two-wheeler segment, Bengaluru-based Ather Energy has become a popular brand selling two-wheelers commercially. There is also Revolt Motors, founded by Rahul Sharma, former co-founder of Micromax. We will likely see more offerings in the two-wheeler and four-wheeler segment soon.
