Realme has quickly expanded its product portfolio beyond smartphones and now the brand is planning to join the EV bandwagon. However, it’s worth noting that a trademark filing doesn’t assure that the product will make it to the market, and hence it must be taken with a pinch of salt.

Before we begin, Realme hasn’t revealed or confirmed if it has any plans of working on EVs or related technologies. The trademark application doesn’t reveal any details about Realme’s electric vehicles apart from the fact that it is filled under the parent company i.e. Realme Mobile Telecommunications (Shenzen) Co Ltd. Additionally, the report adds that the trademark was filed way back in 2018 when Realme entered the smartphone market in India. 

Brands like Apple, Xiaomi, and Huawei are also foraying into the automobile segment. Xiaomi already sells electric scooters in its home market whereas OPPO recently announced its Carlink smart car technology solution. Thus it only makes sense for Realme to foray into the booming EV segment and rival against its competitors. 

India is increasingly becoming an emerging market for EVs especially two-wheelers. Brands like OLA, Ather, Bajaj Chetak, and Hero already offer electric scooters in the country. Xiaomi is yet to bring its electric scooter to India, hence Realme could gain an advantage over the Chinese brand in India’s EV space. However, it remains to be seen what Realme has in the pipeline.
