EV startup Detel launched Esay Plus electric two-wheeler, priced at Rs 39,999
Homegrown EV startup Detel on Friday launched Easy Plus electric two-wheeler priced at ₹39,999. The company has also started taking bookings for the model.
The Easy Plus scooter can be pre-booked on the brand’s website from today for a token amount of Rs 1,999. The details of the e-scooter have been revealed by the company at the Ride Asia Expo.
This low-speed vehicle is powered by a 20AH lithium-ion battery. The lightweight vehicle can be charged entirely in 4-5 hours and they run up to 60Km on a single charge. Powering the scooter is a 250 Watt hub-mounted BLDC electric motor that can propel it to a top speed of 25kmph.
The scooter will be made available in four colors – Red, Yellow, Teal Blue and Royal Blue. The battery-powered scooter is a part of the startup’s ‘Detel Decarbonise India’ initiative and was last month showcased at the India Auto Show 2021 held in Mumbai recently. Under this initiative, the company will be providing a token of appreciation to the customers. This will include a personalised certificate highlighting how their purchase of the EV has helped the environment.
Speaking about the design of the scooter, the Easy Plus features a bare-bones approach. It has very few body panels, that is finished in colour, giving the scooter a distinctive appeal. It features a single-piece seat for the rider and the pillion. The e-scooter also features a round-shaped headlamp and a horizontally placed taillamp, both powered by LED units.
In addition to this, the Detel Foundation will also plant a tree on the sale of every Detel electric vehicle. The personalized certificate will also feature a Geotag for the tree that will be planted in the name of the customer.
The scooter features a telescopic fork at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is done via drum brakes at both ends. It also comes with a pedal mechanism to help with extending the range of the scooter.
