Batt:RE Electric Mobility, a Jaipur-based startup company, has launched the Batt:Mobile electric scooter in India. The vehicle commands an ex-showroom price of ?63,555. The two-wheeler has a round, full LED headlamp which occupies the front apron space. The tail light and blinkers of the vehicle are also LED units. The headlamp’s round shape and the rear view mirrors lend the scooter a retro-styled look.
The Batt:Mobile has a black flyscreen above the front apron, installed on the handlebar. The scooter has a fully digital instrument cluster. Standard features include anti-theft alarm, keyless ignition, and an optional USB charger. The two-wheeler, however, misses out on Bluetooth connectivity.
The Batt:Mobile has a 48V 30Ah lithium-ion battery which powers the brushless direct current (BLDC) motor. It takes four hours to fully charge the battery via an 110V-220V 6amp charger. The e-scooter has an automatic cut-off mechanism which stops the power supply when the battery is fully charged. Batt:RE claims that the battery has a life of 2,000 charging cycles. The company doesn’t have a dedicated charging infrastructure. The battery, however, can be detached from the scooter and charged through a wall socket. The Batt:Mobile, according to the company, returns a mileage of 90km on a single charge.
The e-scooter is supported by telescopic front forks and rear monoshock absorber. Its braking duties are handled by disc brakes on both ends. The Batt:Mobile runs on 10-inch wheels with 90/100-section tyres at both ends. The e-scooter is intended for city riding conditions which explains its low weight of just 65kg. It helps to negotiate urban traffic easily. The Batt:Mobile, however, doesn’t attract any subsidy from the government as of now.
Batt:RE has revealed that it is currently working on internet of things (IOT) e-scooter with mobile app support. The vehicle will be launched soon in the Indian market.
