Top 5 Electric 2-Wheelers You Can Buy In India To Counter Rising Fuel Prices


Ticking boxes of good range, rich in features and appropriate pricing in the electric two-wheeler segment

Electric mobility is growing at an exceptional rate in our country right now. Another reason for the sudden new interest can be credited to the rising fuel prices, which has increased exorbitantly. In India, apart from the existing two-wheeler brands, some new names have also emerged to take the EV industry by storm. So, here’s a list of the top five electric two-wheelers that we think you can consider buying.

Revolt RV400

Price:
RV400 STD- Rs 1.03 lakh
RV400 Premium- Rs 1.18 lakh
Range- 150km

Of the five in the lot, the first one is an electric motorcycle, the Revolt RV400. It offers performance equivalent to a 125cc motorcycle and sports a ton of features. It gets a full-LCD instrument cluster and 4G connectivity. Once paired with your smartphone using the Revolt App, you can also check your travel history, battery health, range and the nearest swap station for the battery.

Moreover, for enhanced safety, Revolt has thrown in geofencing and keyless ignition. Now, this is more of a gimmick than a feature but the Revolt RV400 has speakers for artificial engine note that can be customised to make the electric motorcycle sound like a petrol-powered bike. We’ve ridden the Revolt RV 400 and here’s what we think about it.

Okinawa iPraise Plus

Price- Rs 1.08 lakh
Range- 130km

Okinawa Autotech is an electric two-wheeler brand that sells five more models apart from the iPraise Plus. It is equipped with a detachable 3.3kWh lithium-ion battery with a peak power of 2.5kW.
