It has started its India stint with two models -- the One and the Mile -- both of which are relatively no fuss e-bikes. Priced at Rs 32,999 and Rs 29,999 respectively, both e-bikes went on sale today and those based in Kolkata can get their e-bikes delivered today itself. Currently, online booking has begun but GoZero plans to have 18 experience centres, as well as over 1,000 retailers and an online sales network to sell its products.

The One being the premium a offering gets a 400Wh battery pack which gives it a claimed range of 60km while the Mile is 100Wh lower on energy and thus can only go 45km on a full charge. The two e-bikes go up against the likes of the Tronx One and the Hero e-Zephyr. The GoZero products sit between the Tronx and the Hero products when it comes to value, but they are far superior when it comes to the kit they offer.

Here’s the official press statement from the company:
