Thiruvananthapuram: If you want to buy an electric scooter but not sure which one? Well, Kerala government has a solution for you. The state Energy Management Centre in association with Convergence Energy Services Limited has launched a website and an Android mobile application from which you can buy electric scooters of your choice.
