New Delhi: A hybrid concept scooter that will run on both battery and petrol was launched here at the Auto Expo Thursday by Hero Motocorp Limited.

'Leap' is the first step taken by the company towards developing hybrid technology to bring environmentally friendly two-wheelers in the country.

According to Pawan Munjal, managing director and chief executive officer of Hero, the concept scooter is a testimony to the company's ability to bring technologically superior products in keeping with international standards.

"Leap is indeed a leap in terms of advanced technology not just for us but also for the Indian two-wheeler industry," he added.

Hero has already applied for three international technology patents and nine international design registrations.

"Although this currently is at a concept stage, we intend to take it forward to be able to produce it commercially in the near future," said Munjal, adding that the product was made in-house by a select team of Hero people with a few international consultants.

According to the company, 'Leap' would appeal to aesthetically inclined youngsters and young adults.

Talking about the future, Munjal said that Hero was fast strengthening its research and development set up at its Gurgaon and Dharuhera plants in Haryana since the past several months by investing.

The 11th edition of the Auto Expo, held at the sprawling Pragati Maidan exposition grounds, will conclude Jan 11.
