Bajaj is back with top selling scooter of old time and named as Chetak electric scooter.

Bajaj Chetak electric scooter unveiled - a comeback of ‘Hamara Baja ‘after 14 years!! 

Bajaj has become the first mainstream Indian motorcycle brand to enter the electric space and   simultaneously return to the scooter segment with its new Urbanite sub-division. 

The scooter will have a in-city range of 100 km and is expected to be priced under Rs. 1.25 lakh. It is powered by 4 KW electric motor,  an IP67 rated high-tech Lithium-Ion battery with NCA cells, an in- built charger and the vehicle can be charged using a standard 5-15 amp electrical outlet.


 Intelligent Battery Management System will control the charge and discharge seamlessly. It has  2 driving modes - Eco and Sport, along with a reverse assist mode for more convenience. 
The scooter also gets regenerative braking, which converts braking heat into kinetic energy to maximize range. The Chetak with metal body will also be a fully-connected and will be embedded with mobility solution like data communication, security and user authentication.Great. 

But We have some concern in electric vehicles.

ActuallyI don't know what is going on in India, the price of electric scooter is around 1.0L - 1.25L, why?
 In China the price of electric scooter starts from 800RMB(lead acid bicycle) to 6000RMB(LFP and NMC Lithium powered Scooter)... That is around 8000Rupees to 60,000Rupees.. In India why it is double... Why?.. 
Everyone wants to make more profit.. but the manufacturer has to sell the product directly to customer to reduce this price, manufacturing cost may be only 20,000Rupees... Battery may be around 15,000Rupees... Who will bring the revolutionary changes like China..

Lets see what will happen to our electric vehicles implementation in our industry.
