The Indian government has also granted an exemption of registration fees for battery-operated/electric vehicles and even an exemption to permits to E-Vehicles running on ethanol and methanol fuels. It has also allowed obtaining driving licenses to drive e-scooters for the age group of 16-18 years. All these indicate a bright future of the E-Bikes vehicles in the country.

Wheels for E-bike come in many different sizes today, ranging from 12 inches to massive 29 inches in diameter. E-bikes are majorly equipped with a 16", 20", or 26" inch diameter wheel.
