The brand could be re-launched in 2023, with the first e-scooter planned for 2024.
Rumours of the iconic Lambretta returning to the Indian market have been around for quite some time. Latest reports suggest that the brand could be re-launched in 2023, with the first e-scooter planned for 2024.
Lambretta, part of Switzerland-based Innocenti SA, will launch its products in India in partnership with the Bird Group. The company has lined-up three models – G, V and X, with engine capacities ranging from 200cc to 350cc. These are likely to be launched in 2023.
According to Walter Scheffrahn, Member of Board, Innocenti SA, the company plans to invest US$ 200 million in India in the next 5 years. It aims to start local manufacturing in Q1 2024. However, initially, Lambretta will import its scooters as ‘completely built units’ (CBUs). Some models could take the CKD route.
