The effect of vehicular emissions on the environment is no secret. To get a handle on air pollution, the automotive sector in several countries has been embracing the idea of going green by switching to electric vehicles. For 2020, India too has seen some new entries in the electric two-wheeler market. Not only big names like Bajaj and TVS, but a few more brands have also dived into the EV pool. Here’s a list of all the launches in 2020:
Bajaj brought back the Chetak moniker with an e-scooter. The Chetak Electric was launched on January 14, 2020, in two variants: Urbane and Premium. Its design language resembles the old petrol-powered Chetak. However, the feature list is as modern as it gets with the likes of smartphone connectivity, geo-tagging, geo-fencing, and even turn-by-turn navigation.
Bajaj has priced the Chetak at Rs 1 lakh for the Urbane variant and Rs 1.15 lakh for the premium variant (ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the Ather 450X and the TVS iQube. To read more about it, click here.
Earlier this year, TVS launched the iQube in the Indian electric two-wheeler space. The initial booking amount was set at Rs 5,000 and deliveries began on January 27, 2020. TVS ticked a lot of boxes when it came to the iQube’s features list. It gets everything from a full-colour digital display and smartphone connectivity to different riding modes.
The iQube is TVS’ only EV available in the market. It’s priced at Rs 1.15 lakh (on-road Bengaluru). Unfortunately, for now, it is only available in its home market of Bengaluru. TVS sells the iQube e-scooter in a single white colour scheme. Head here for more details.
