The TVS X is now India’s most expensive electric scooter

  • In fact, the X is also India’s first electric scooter to get the safety net of ABS
  • The X packs a massive 10.25-inch TFT console, something that’s unheard of in the segment
  • In terms of suspension, there’s a telescopic fork along with a monoshock

TVS has just introduced the X electric scooter, causing quite a stir online due to its status as India's priciest electric scooter. However, the abundance of features it boasts might also lead to some uncertainty. If you find yourself a tad hesitant about the X, worry not. We've compiled responses to 10 frequently asked questions about this electric scooter to clear up any confusion: 

1) What is the TVS X? 

The TVS X is their top-of-the-line electric scooter, in the Indian market. This e-scooter stands out with its distinct and one-of-a-kind design, setting it apart from other electric scooters in the country. 

2) What does the TVS X look like? 

The TVS X looks sporty and sharp, quite similar to the Creon concept which was unveiled back in 2018 and we think it’s a good thing, for the Creon was quite a looker.

3) What is the TVS X price? 

TVS has priced the X at an eye-watering Rs 2.50 lakh, ex-showroom. While it is already an expensive scooter, the fact that it’s not eligible for FAME 2 subsidies makes things worse for its price. That also makes the X India’s most expensive electric scooter. 

4) What is the TVS X range?

The TVS X houses a ram-air-cooled motor that is situated within the frame. This motor boasts a power rating of 7kW, with a peak output of 11kW. It is coupled with a 4.44kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Impressively, this battery pack yields a respectable Indian Driving Cycle (IDC) range of 140km.

5) What makes TVS X unique? 

Along with its fantastic design, the X also packs groundbreaking features. It claims the title of being the first electric scooter in India to be equipped with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System). With a price tag of Rs 2,49,990, the TVS X secures its position as the highest-priced electric scooter available in India. For a comprehensive look at the launch details, feel free to explore our in-depth launch coverage.

6) How TVS X variants are launched?

The TVS X is currently on sale in only one variant. That said, our exclusive interview with some of TVS’ officials revealed that the scooter could get a bunch of more variants in the near future, maybe even in the coming 12 months or so. 

7) What are the details of TVS X features?

In typical TVS style, the TVS X is loaded to the brim with features, the most sizable of which is the massive 10.2-inch TFT display that can be tilted as per your preference. This impressive screen offers smartphone integration, enabling features like navigation, a multi-window display, and even the ability to play videos and games (though this functionality is accessible only when the scooter is stationary). 

You have multiple options for connectivity: you can link it to your smartphone, sync it with a helmet, or even connect it through a smartwatch. Interestingly, this is the biggest console we’ve ever seen on a two-wheeler in India. Even the litre-class super sports don’t get anything even remotely close to this. 

8) How to book TVS X?

Bookings for the X are open on TVS’ official website. Once you click on the X’s banner and click on ‘Reserve Now’, it’ll take you to the booking site, where after entering your important details, you can pay the booking amount and get the scooter home. 

9) What is the TVS X booking amount?

The TVS X can be booked for an initial amount of Rs 5,000 on TVS’ official website. Deliveries, for the scooter, meanwhile, will begin in a phased manner from December this year. 

10) Who are TVS X rivals?

Given the X’s humongous price, it doesn’t really have any direct rivals in the Indian market. Hence the closest other alternatives for it include the likes of the Ather 450X and the Ola S1 Pro Gen 2, two of India’s sportiest and most powerful electric scooters.
