Jaipur (Rajasthan)-based electric two-wheeler start-up Batt:RE Electric Mobility has launched its first product, an electric scooter. The company has priced the electric scooter at INR 63,555 (ex-showroom).
In terms of styling, the electric scooter features a round, full LED headlight that occupies the space on the front apron. The blinkers and tail light also are LED units. The round shape of the headlight and the rear view mirrors adds a retro look to the electric scooter.
Above the front apron is a black fly-screen that is installed on the handlebar, behind which there's a fully-digital instrument console. The electric scooter does not feature a Bluetooth-enabled instrument console. Available features include keyless ignition, Anti-theft alarm and a USB charger (optional).
Behind the front apron is a bottle holder that adds to the convenience by providing extra storage. Underseat storage space is available, although the capacity has not been mentioned in the spec sheet.
The saddle is followed by a single-piece pillion grab rail that mimics a split-style design to add a sporty look to the package. A smoked cover on the LED tail light and rear blinkers add a nice contrast to the monotone paint job. Five colour options are available.
The electric scooter features a 48V 30 Ah lithium iron phosphate battery pack that powers the BLDC motor and takes four hours to charge via a 110V-220V 6Amp charger. An automatic cut-off mechanism ensures that the power is cut once the battery pack is fully charged. The battery life is claimed at 2,000 cycles. The company does not have a dedicated charging infrastructure, although the battery pack can be removed and charged via a wall socket. A full charge is claimed to return a range of 90 km.
The electric scooter rides on 10-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in 90/100 section tubeless tyres. Stopping power comes from a disc brake on the front and the back wheel. Hydraulic shock absorbers on both ends perform the suspension duties, and the ground clearance stands at 150 mm. It tips the weighing scale at 65 kg.
