Electric Bikes Key Components

  • Types Of Battery

    The battery pack is the heart of any electric vehicle. There are two major types of batteries: Lithium-ion and Lead Acid. As the name suggests, lithium-ion battery packs use lithium as the primary compound at the positive electrode while the negative electrode is usually made out of graphite. These batteries have a higher charge density, low self-discharge levels, and are generally lighter than lead acid batteries. They also offer better range and faster charging capabilities, but come at a higher cost. The Ather 450X is a perfect example of an electric two-wheeler powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The first rechargeable batteries to have ever been created are in fact lead acid batteries. Modern electric vehicles use Valve Regulated Lead Acid batteries (VRLA), wherein the lead electrodes are suspended in a gel-like electrolyte. These batteries are less expensive to make but their charge density isn’t as good as lithium-ion ones, so the range offered is relatively lesser. They are also heavier and take longer to charge. A prime example of an electric scooter powered by a VRLA battery is the Hero Electric Optima LX.

  • Types Of Motors

    The energy stored in the battery is translated into motion using an electric motor. There are two major types of electric motors: Hub and Frame-mounted. The brushless DC hub motors, in particular, are used in most of the electric two-wheelers. They are fairly easy to install, do not require transmission components, and are affordable to manufacture as well. However, they result in an increased unsprung weight, which negatively impacts the handling of a two-wheeler. The TVS iQube Electric is a great example for an electric scooter with a hub motor. Frame-mounted motors, or mid-drive motors, are mounted onto the vehicle’s frame, and are linked to a transmission drive, which is usually either a belt or sometimes a chain. These motors are powerful, and also ensure the centre of gravity is optimised in a two-wheeler. But on the flip side, they are expensive, and the transmission drives may need regular maintenance. The Ather 450X comes with a frame mounted motor.

  • Types Of Battery Layouts

    Electric two-wheelers have either a fixed battery pack or a removable one. The chassis of EVs with fixed battery packs are relatively simple, and are easy to manufacture. But since they cannot be removed, the electric two-wheelers will have to be heavily dependent on charging infrastructure. The Bajaj Chetak electric scooter comes with a fixed battery pack. Two-wheelers with removable battery packs have their chassis designed in a way to accommodate easy installation and removal of the batteries. This increases the engineering complexity, and thereby ends up increasing the manufacturing costs. But the biggest advantage is the ability to simply remove the battery pack and charge it wherever convenient. The Revolt RV 400 comes with a removable battery pack, which can easily be replaced with a fresh one in minutes.

  • Types Of Charging

    There are two ways to charge a battery pack. The conventional way is to simply plug the charger into a 3-pin 5A socket and let it charge overnight. While this takes a long time to charge the battery completely, it does not heat up the battery pack as the amount of current induced is low. The Hero Electric Photon HX, for example, takes 5 hours to charge completely. On the other hand, a fast-charging system sends large amounts of current into the battery pack, thus charging them up quickly. However, batteries that are compatible with fast charging systems need to have excellent thermal management to ensure their longevity. Electric bikes and scooters with fast-charging technology are expensive too. The Ather 450X uses a proprietary AC and DC combined fast-charging system that can juice up the battery in over an hour.

Electric Bikes Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Pros
  • Cons


The biggest USP of electric bikes is that they produce zero vehicular pollution. Electric bikes run on electricity which means they don’t burn any fossil fuels and do not contribute to air pollution.

Low Maintenance Costs

Electric bikes have less moving parts compared to ICE bikes. Lithium-ion battery packs last for years before you might need to replace them. Regular cleaning and occasional lubrication keeps the bike running without spending big bucks.

Government Subsidies

The Government has launched benefits under FAME II scheme (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles) to encourage citizens to purchase Electric bikes and scooters. One can expect better prices with these incentives, and more manufacturers launching electric bikes.

Cost Effective

With rising prices of fuel, buyers may prefer electric bikes as the price per unit for electricity does not fluctuate rapidly. The maintenance and recharging of electric bikes is more affordable.

Higher Price Bracket

Most electric bikes cost upwards of 90,000/- as compared to fuel bikes. Hence, it requires the buyer to make a high initial investment. The major contributor to high cost is the lithium-ion battery packs in electric bikes which costs around 50% of the total cost of the bike.

Lower Range

The range of an electric bike is defined as the distance covered by it after one time charging. With a charge of about 5 hours, an electric bike can run somewhere close to 100 Kms. This makes it a little unsuitable for long distance rides.

Scarce Charging Stations

Although the number of charging stations is expected to increase over the coming years, finding a station in proximity for EV bike owners is still an inconvenience. Finding a petrol pump is relatively easier than finding an EV charging station.

Longer Charging Duration

Electric bikes may take up to 5 hours to charge fully whereas it takes only a couple of minutes to refuel a petrol/diesel bike. Fast chargers are not available at all charging stations which causes inconvenience to the user.
