The company has recently tied up with a Canadian firm Electro Vaya to produce Li-ion batteries in the country from a greenfield facility. "In the next 4-5 weeks, we will sign a definitive agreement. We are scouting for land to set up the facility," Munjal said without divulging the possible investment in the project.

Besides, the company is talking to the Delhi government and some power companies to set up charging stations in the National Capital for its electric scooters
