BattRE is launching e-scooters in the cities of Nagpur, Hyderabad, Anantpur and Kurnool. The cost of BattRE e-scooters starts from Rs 63,555 onwards.
The e-scooter has a digital display, which shows battery usage, speed, temperature, odometer and faults, if any. It also comes with safety features like day running lights, rear reverse, anti-theft alarm with tyre lock, front and rear disc brakes, and broad tubeless tyres.
In the words of Nishchal Chaudhary, Founder of BattRE Electric Mobility, “The global e-mobility market is experiencing phenomenal growth due product innovations and change in policies. We are expecting to see the reverberations in the Indian market too. Our aim is to not only build an e-vehicle but also to offer an entire eco-system thereby ensuring that the consumer enjoys a complete e-mobility experience.” He further added that “We are also committed in building a world class distribution and after sales service network.”
A major advancement in the innovative smart electric scooter by BattRE is that it will run on lithium ferro phosphate batteries instead of the lead-acid batteries – thereby providing superior performance and longer operational life. The batteries of this scooter will power it for about 7 years depending upon the usage.
The company is working on the new innovative feature of building IOT (Internet of Things) connected Electric Scooter supported with a Mobile App which will be launched soon. It is a smart vehicle that uses Cloud-based GPRS to connect with a smart-phone app and store all vehicle-related data online.
According to a study, Indian Electric Two-Wheeler market is expected to grow with a CAGR over 40% during the forecast period 2018-2025. In India, it is estimated that the sales of electric scooters will cross 2 million a year by 2025.
