TVS unveils first “e-scooter” in Gujarat; to launch all over India by April 2008
Automobile manufacturer TVS has finally launched the electric variant of its existing model Scooty Teenz in Gujarat. The vehicle is also the first electric scooter model of the company.
The vehicle is powered with 800 watt motor and can carry up to 130 kg of load and deliver an average range of 40 Km per nine hours charge at top speed. However, this can increase by fifty percent if the rider opts for lower speeds by using a unique feature of this electric bike, the range selector.
The company’s target customers are young women who need mobility and whose daily travel is limited to around 15-25 km per day.
The Scotty is equipped with large utility spaces and promises a comfortable and effortless ride with ease of parking. Its other benefits are low running costs, no pollution, no noise and high durability.
The scooter is available in rich colors including red, black and lilac, along with vibrant contemporary graphics. The company is eyeing sales of 500 units in the state.
The ex-showroom price of the vehicle will be Rs 32,500 and it will be launched all over the country by April 2008.
