Taking on the likes of Ather 450, Bajaj Chetak, Okinawa Praise and others, TVS has entered the EV segment with its iQube e-scooter.
The emission-free model, priced at Rs. 1.15 lakh, promises a range of 75km on a single charge. As for availability, it will be initially sold in Bengaluru only before arriving in other cities at a later date.
In terms of design, the iQube looks like a cross between the Ather 450 and the TVS Jupiter with a wide front apron, black and white dual-tone paint finish, LED lighting, 12-inch wheels, and a single step-up seat.
However, a U-shaped LED DRL, square-ish rear-view mirrors, and a glowing 'electric' logo near the motor give it some uniqueness.
The e-scooter comes with the 'next-gen TVS SmartXonnect platform'
The iQube comes with the 'next-gen TVS SmartXonnect platform' that offers a digital instrument cluster and iQube app. Using the app, you will be able to access features such as geo-fencing, remote battery charge status, navigation assist, last park location, call/SMS alerts, and so on.
