They’re all very functional and priced decently well.
- The Ather 450X takes the cake if you want a sporty and fun electric scooter.
- The TVS iQube, meanwhile, is for the ones wanting a family-friendly, relaxed scooter.
- Ola’s S1 series, unfortunately, has had its fair share of issues over the years.
In India, electric mobility has advanced significantly from low-performance scooters with limited range. Modern electric scooters are loaded with technology that is not even found in two-wheelers that are ten times more expensive.
Additionally, they now provide performance that is on par with or better than 110cc scooters, as well as a range that is suitable for daily use. Therefore, your next purchase might want to be an electric scooter. Here are the electric scooters that we think are best in India.
- Ather 450X
- TVS iQube ST
- Hero Vida V1
- Okinawa PraisePro
- Ampere Primus
The third generation iteration of Ather Energy's premier electric scooter, known as the Ather Energy 450x Gen 3, was released in July 2022. The scooter has a more potent electric motor that can provide the equivalent of 8.7 horsepower of power and has a 146 km riding range that has been verified by ARAI.
Not only that, but an all-aluminum frame has improved the construction of Ather's scooter body, which was previously well-engineered. Additionally, it receives a new tyre tread profile and tyre pressure monitoring system accessories. Even its digital dashboard has received an upgrade with extra RAM to improve performance.
In all likelihood, the Ather 450x Gen 3 is the greatest electric scooter available in India. This is one of the most high-end electric scooters now on Indian roads in terms of riding quality, build, and overall experience.
The TVS iQube ST electric scooter sticks out for having a more traditional appearance, but that has advantages of its own. For starters, the iQube ST features one of the largest boot compartments, allowing you to fit two full-sized helmets to protect both you and your travelling companion. That's not all, though.
The scooter has a maximum riding range of 110 km in performance mode and 145 km in economy mode. The scooter is one of the best-performing electric scooters on the market because it can reach a respectable riding speed of 82 kmph when used in the latter. Additionally, you receive a 7-inch touchscreen with social media notifications, Bluetooth music playing, and integration with Amazon Alexa voice assistant.
3- Hero Vida V1
This month, the Vida sub-brand of Hero Motocorp unveiled the Vida V1 electric scooter. The scooter is available in the Vida V1 Plus and Vida V1 Pro models. Regarding the features and specifications, both models have a top speed of 80 kmph, but the V1 Pro can accelerate from 0 to 40 kmph in 3.2 seconds while the V1 Plus needs 3.4 seconds.
The new EV two-wheelers will be able to give a range of 163 km for the V1 Pro and 143 km for the V1 Plus, respectively, according to the claimed range. A portable battery pack that can be charged from empty to 80% capacity in under 65 minutes powers both electric scooters.
The PraisePro electric scooter has a stylish design. Between the Praise and iPraise+, it occupies the middle ground and provides the optimum balance. A USB charging outlet, anti-theft alarm, keyless entry, LED headlights and turn indicators, disc brakes on both ends, and riding modes are among the features.
