The country’s largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp today unveiled India’s first concept hybrid scooter, which is being developed in association with a foreign consultant, at the 11th Auto Expo.

“This is a first-ever series hybrid scooter from India. We are showing the rest of the world that we have arrived,” Hero MotoCorp Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Pawan Munjal, told reporters.

The concept hybrid scooter — LEAP — is being indigenously developed with the help of an international consultant, he added.

Talking about the launch of the scooter, Mr Munjal said: “we will definitely product ionise it in future. We have to work a lot for launching it commercially. So it will take sometime.”

When asked about sales, Mr Munjal said: “2012 may not be as good as 2011 but we will still see a double-digit growth.”

In August last year, Hero MotoCorp (formerly Hero Honda) had ended its 27 years-long relationship with Honda.
