Electric Bike Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Pros
  • Cons

Environment-friendly

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.

    Test drive taken.Although the looks of vehicle are good but the scooter running noise are too much for an electric scooter.Whoever has taken a test ride on any other electric scooter is probably more likely to buy other electric scooter.The price of scooter is also too much compare to activa and how does a company justify the on-road price of 1.18 lakh and 1.38 lakh after a maharashtra govt subsidy of around rs.65000/-.

    TVS iQube electric has very good specifications and it is a solid electric scooter with very good built quality. The price of the TVS iQube electric has been slashed by INR 11, 250, courtesy of the revised fame 2 subsidy scheme by the government which makes it a very desirable electric vehicle for the Indian market and its customers. It is very fast as well and it can go from 0 to 40kmph in 4.2 seconds.

    It would be unfair to give a verdict here as the battery life would depend on certain factors such as riding conditions, charging cycle, timely maintenance, etc.

    The Ola S1 comes with a saddle height of 792mm which might be difficult to ride by a 4 ft height person. Moreover, we would suggest taking the test ride so that you can feel the comfort. Moreover, comfort is something that can be best judged personally and varies from person to person.

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?

Yes

Do we need to have a license and registration for electric bikes?

Electric bikes powered up to 250 watt motor and capable of running at a top speed of not more than 25 kmph, do not need licence and vehicle registration.
