Electric Scooter Hill Climb Test - Ola S1 Pro vs Ather 450X vs TVS iQube vs Bajaj Chetak| Episode 1

Electric two-wheeler sales have been growing every month and their popularity among the Indian masses has grown exponentially. This has to do with the introduction of many premium EV two-wheelers that not only offer good performance, but usable range and come loaded with features. We have done many real-world EV two-wheeler tests on ZigWheels, both individually and as a comparison. However, there has always been one key question - are EVs useful on hilly areas or mountain roads. 


This got us curious and for this very reason we are here today. What we have with us are the most popular and most premium EV scooters on sale in India - Ola S1 Pro, TVS iQube, Bajaj Chetak and the Ather 450X. The EV hill climb test is simple, which electric scooter among these can go up and down the hill and clock the highest range. The results are very surprising!
