The G20 is a global forum with European Union and 19 countries that represent the world’s 20 largest economies. This year, the summit was held in Bali, Indonesia, on November 15 and 16.
A number of electric two-wheeler companies supplied electric motorcycles and mopeds for use during the G20 Summit, including Zero Motorcycles, Energica, Gogoro and NIU.
On the second day of the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at the Taman Hutan Raya Ngurah Rai, a mangrove forest in Bali, in a Genesis Electrified G80, the flagship all-electric sedan from Hyundai’s luxury brand. Hyundai is yet to bring Genesis to India even though some of the carmaker's top officials were spotted driving Genesis cars on Indian roads.

MG Motors is expected to start the sale of the 2-door compact electric car in India by early 2023. The electric vehicle is based on the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture’s mini EV. The small electric runabout vehicle is called the Wuling EV. Wuling was earlier introduced in Indonesia.
