Techo Electra, a Pune based EV start-up, has launched three new electric scooters in India. The line-up comprises 3 models: entry-level Neo, mid-ranger Raptor and top-variant Emerge. Notably, the scooters have a claimed range of 70-85kms, and they can be fully charged in around four to seven hours. Here is our roundup.
Techo Electra Emerge: Priced at Rs. 72,000
The Techo Electra Emerge features a Vespa like retro look with octagonal-shaped headlamps, and body-colored front mudguards and mufflers. It gets a digital instrument console, all-LED lighting setup, reverse parking assist, and USB charging support. Powering the scooter is a portable 60V 30Ah lithium-ion battery, which has a claimed range of 70-80kms on a single charge. It can be fully charged in 4-5 hours.
Techo Electra Raptor: Priced at Rs. 61,000
Then, we have the mid-ranger Techo Electra Raptor. It features a sporty look with a sharp-edged front apron and dual-tone paint job. It gets LED headlamps and taillamps, USB charging port, reverse parking assist, and LCD instrument panel. The scooter packs a 60V 32Ah lead-acid battery which can be juiced up fully in around 6-8 hours of charging, and offers a range of 80-90kms.
Techo Electra Neo: Priced at Rs. 44,000
Finally, there is Techo Electra Neo, which looks similar to Raptor. However, it has smaller under-seat storage and it misses reverse parking assist feature to attain a cheaper price tag. The scooter houses apron mounted LED headlamp, LED taillamps and USB charging port. It is backed by 48V 20Ah lead-acid battery that promises a range of 55-60kms and can be charged in 4-6 hours.
What about braking and suspension duties?
For braking performance, the Emerge and Raptor come equipped with disc brakes on the front and drum brakes on the rear wheels. On the other hand, the base-variant Neo gets drum brakes on both sides. To handle suspension duties, all the three scooters house telescopic forks on the front and dual shock suspension on the rear side.
