Earlier this year in May 2020, ahead of the scooter's official launch, the Peugeot Metropolis was also inducted in Guangdong City's Police fleet in China.

Also, in his tweet, he had expressed the desire for having a low-cost version of the scooter in India.

Mahindra bought Peugeot Motocycles fully in October 2019, so it is possible that we might see the French brand enter the Indian market, at least with some vehicles in its portfolio, in the future. India is one of the biggest two-wheeler markets in the world and a lot of global two-wheeler brands are already present here.
