Ampere Vehicles is the e-mobility arm of Greaves Cotton, and the maker of the Zeal.

The Ampere Zeal is a compact looking electric scooter that comes with sporty graphics, more conventional proportions and more modern design. Other features include an LED headlight, two speed modes: economy and power and an anti-theft alarm. The next-generation electric scooter is available in five high-gloss metallic colour options.
Ampere’s electric vehicles come with one- to three-year warranty and strong after-sales service across a network of over 300 Greaves Retail stores and in over 5,000 aftermarket outlets across the country.
