Simple One electric scooter India launch on 23 May; What should you expect?
Simple Energy will launch its all-electric One scooter in India on May 23, 2023. A picture that could have taken inside the manufacturing plant suggests the electric scooter is ready for deliveries soon after its launch. Since this launch has been set after a two-year gap of last price announcement, the Bangalore-based EV start-up has claimed that it spent these years developing the e-scooter to ensure the safety of its battery pack. As a result, the electric scooter complies with the revised Automotive Industry Standards (AIS) 156, which were introduced by the Government of India in response to numerous complaints along with videos and photos of two-wheeler EVs catching fire.
Simple One electric scooter: Design and Colours
The EV is likely to retain its sporty and sleek design. The key highlights could include a vertical LED headlamp, slim LED indicators, distinctive daytime running lights, and angular C-shaped LED taillamps. Furthermore, Simple Energy is expected to offer it with four shades: Brazen Black, Namma Red, Azure Blue, and Grace White.
Simple One electric scooter: Range, battery, and power output
In terms of battery pack and range, the previous version of the One electric scooter featured a 4.8kWh battery pack coupled with an 8.5kW electric motor generating 72Nm of torque. The upcoming Simple One version is expected to offer improved performance and potentially provide the same or even more range than the previously promised 236km. Additionally, we anticipate an enhanced top speed compared to the previous 105kmph.
Simple One electric scooter: Specifications
The One is likely to be available in four color schemes: It is expected to retain the same features as before, including a color TFT display with navigation, smartphone connectivity, all-LED lights, telescopic forks, a monoshock, single-disc setup at the front and back, and 12-inch wheels. The storage capacity of 30 liters is expected to remain unchanged.
