The BeiGo X4 is also ‘self-balancing’, and it does so without a gyroscope

Bengaluru, a city synonymous with tasty dosas, IT companies and patience-testing traffic is also slowly becoming the birthplace of countless electric two-wheeler makers as well. Ather Energy, Ola Electric, Ultraviolette, Simple Energy, these are just some names that have been at the forefront of bringing memorable electric two-wheelers to India.
Today, on the occasion of India’s 74th Republic Day, there’s a new electric scooter aiming to create a name for itself and it is born out of Bengaluru. Behold the newly launched iGowise BeiGo X4, a quirky three-wheeled electric scooter.
The BeiGo X4 looks unlike any electric scooter we’ve grown accustomed to seeing, sporting a unique minimalist design that conveys ruggedness and functionality. The apron is simple, but the headlight is mounted into an element resembling the bonnet of a four-wheeler. Even the seating area sees a similar tub integrated into a small boxy body.
‘Self-balancing’ is a feature this scooter is claimed (by the manufacturer) to offer, and unlike the self-balancing Liger X electric scooter seen at the Auto Expo, the BeiGo X4 doesn’t make use of gyroscopic technology, but rather, it sits on two rear wheels, to provide the rider of scooting around with feet on-board all the time. While turning, the entire body work along with the front wheel tilts, whereas, the rear wheels stay upright. This would prevent the e-trike from toppling. That said, it’ll be interesting to see how the e-trike handles at higher speeds.
The BeiGo X4 is claimed to offer a range of 150km from a fire-resistant LiFePO4 battery pack. This e-scooter gets a twin hub motor on its two rear wheels, again, another quirk we haven’t seen on our roads yet. Owing to its unique design, the BeiGo X4 boasts of a 60-litre boot space, a flat floorboard and a triple-disc brake with the safety net of anti-skid braking system, the brand’s term for CBS.

The company has priced this e-trike at a starting price tag of Rs 1.10 lakh (introductory) and also offers a five-year/one lakh km warranty too. This price tag makes the BeiGo X4 rival the likes of the TVS iQube S and Ola S1. iGowise’s manufacturing facility is claimed to have an annual capacity of 30,000 units, and we hope the brand sets up a strong network of touchpoints and manages to keep up with the demand.
