This Electric Scooter With 240 Kms Range Is Also Launching On Aug 15; Will Fight Ola’s E-Scooter
The market for EV scooters is getting hotter day by day! Recently it witnessed a massive response to bookings of Ola Electric Scooter. And when the market is so hot for the electric scooters, no promising player wants to leave behind right? Entering into the foray is a new player – Simple Energy
Simple One by Simple Energy
The new e-scooter by Simple Energy will be first launched in Banglore, Chennai, and Hyderabad. It is expected to get priced around Rs. 1.1 lakhs to Rs. 1.2 lakhs ex-showroom.
“We are elated to announce the name of the first electric vehicle by Simple Energy. Although it was known as Mark2, the name Simple One will give the right essence from the brand and product perspective. The team is now gearing up for the launch,” said, Suhas Rajkumar, founder, and CEO, Simple Energy
What makes this vehicle stand apart is its claimed range of 240 km in Eco mode. It is significantly higher than any of the electric scooters that are currently available in the Indian market. The top speed of the scooter is 100 kmph and it can reach from 0 to 50 kmph within the time of 3.6 seconds. The manufacturer will be using a 4.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The futuristic bike will also come with a touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, and navigation.
Tough competition with Ola Electric Scooter
Recently when Ola opened bookings for its electric vehicle, the company teased us with a video without getting into specifics of the vehicle. Since then Ola has released some images of the bike, indicating the color variants in which the company will be available. EV enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for more specifications. To this Bhavish Agarwal, the CEO of Ola informed that more details will be unveiled on August 15th, the Independence Day of India.
As Simple Energy is also preparing to launch the vehicle on the same day, the war is brewing in the EV space in India. Who will be the winner, only time will tell.
