FAQs on Electric Bikes
Why should I buy Electric scooters or bikes in India?
6 of the world's 10 most polluted cities are in India, and New Delhi has the lowest air quality of any capital city in the world. Air pollution kills over 12 lakh people in India every year, and one of the biggest contributing factors to air pollution is the transportation sector. With EV technology and charging infrastructure improving every day, electric two-wheelers are the best way for consumers to contribute towards improving air quality in India.
How can I charge an electric bike?
Electric vehicles can be charged either via a socket located on the vehicle itself, or in the case of a removable battery, through a portable charger using any conventional 5-amp socket. Some EVs offer both options.
How long does it take to charge an electric bike's battery?
Depending on the size and type of battery and the rating of the charger, a full charge can take anywhere from an hour to 7 or 8 hours.
What are the types of battery used in electric bikes?
EVs can use lead-acid batteries like IC-engined vehicles, or lithium-ion/lithium-polymer batteries. The latter provide better energy density while being significantly lighter, giving them an advantage over lead-acid batteries.
What is the life of a battery that is used in an electric scooter?
Lithium-ion batteries usually come with a 5 to 7 year warranty.
What is the approximate weight an electric scooter can carry?
Most high-speed electric scooters (power >2.5kW) can carry loads comparable to any petrol-powered 100-110cc scooter.
What is the approximate range of an electric bike or scooter?
As technology improves, so does an EV's range. But at the moment, most electric scooters/bikes offer between 50km and 100km of range on a full charge.
Are electric bikes suitable for hilly regions?
The instant and significant torque offered by electric motors makes them well-suited to hilly areas. However, the greater loads will reduce the range quite drastically. One must also note that the performance of EVs usually declines as the battery's charge levels drop.
What is the cost of a lithium-ion battery?
Depending on the type and size of the battery pack, it can cost anywhere between Rs 30,000 and 70,000 to replace.
Do electric bikes/scooters need a license?
EVs with a motor rated at 2.5kW or higher require a license just like a conventional two-wheeler.
How does an electric scooter/motorcycle work?
Instead of a petrol engine powering the rear wheel, an electric motor is used to drive the vehicle. This motor derives power from a battery located on the vehicle itself, which has to be charged up from time to time. Usually, no gearbox is used so electrics are automatic.
Do electric bikes/scooters need insurance?
Yes, EVs require vehicular insurance for accidental damage/failures just like conventional vehicles.
Are electric bikes/scooters safe?
The battery packs are sealed and water-resistant, making them safe to use in all conditions, even in the rain.
Do electric motorcycles make noise?
There is a slight whining sound from the electric motor, but much less when compared to a petrol engine in the case of belt drive or hub mounted motors. If the electric two-wheeler employs chain drive, then it's more audible.
Do electric bikes have motors?
