- Hero Electric being sued by Honda
- Issue over design infringement
Honda has sued Hero Electric, India’s biggest electric scooter manufacturer for copying design of one of their e-scooters.
The Japanese brand has approached Delhi High court accusing Hero Electric of copying the rear cover, front and rear lamps of its Moove electric scooter. The company claims that Hero Electric’s Dash e-scooter sports the same design as seen on the Moove. Honda is seeking to stop manufacturing, selling and advertising of Dash scooters in the country.
The Dash e-scooter has been on sale in India since last year with a price tag of Rs 62,000. It is one of the premium offerings from Hero Electric. The Moove, on the other hand, isn’t sold in India yet. But Honda has been aggressively registering technologies and design trademarks of its international products in India since the last few years.
