Bajaj Auto’s Executive Director, Rakesh Sharma, highlighted the collaborative approach, stating that the company’s role extends beyond being a financial investor. He emphasized the combined expertise in consumer knowledge, technology, and manufacturing that positions both companies to build a leading business in the shared mobility space.

The equity funding will empower Yulu Bikes to enhance its market leadership by expanding its fleet of electric bikes, operational locations, and investing in product and technology innovation. 

Yulu Bikes remains at the forefront of green mobility solutions, reflecting the vital role played by such initiatives in emerging markets.

Bajaj Auto’s increased investment in Yulu Bikes not only cements their partnership but also signifies a shared commitment to driving sustainable and shared mobility solutions in India.
