The new Hero Dash uses a 48v 28 Ah Li-Ion battery with fast-charging technology. The battery pack can be recharged in 4 hours and offers a range of 60 km. To tackle the Indian driving conditions, the Hero Dash comes with a high ground clearance of 145 mm. Key features of the new Dash include LED DRLs, LED headlights, digital instrument cluster, USB mobile charging port, tubeless tyres, dual-tone body colour and graphics and remote boot opening.

Other hardware specifications include telescopic front forks and twin-sided springs to perform the shock absorption tasks. Anchoring department comprises drum brakes on both wheels.

Hero Electric is one of the five manufacturers in India to benefit from the FAME-II subsidy. The company will continue to comply with the FAME-II guidelines to receive the subsidy and offer its products at lower prices. The lowered GST rates on electric bikes, batteries and chargers will further bring down the prices of Hero Electric products.

Apart from the launch of the Dash, Hero Electric also spoke about its plans to increase touchpoints presently to 1,000 (from the existing 615 outlets) by end of 2020. The company aims to make the brand accessible even in the most interior parts of the country. It plans to ramp up production capacity to 5 lakh units per annum in the next three years.
