ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
GURUGRAM-based Twenty Two Motors launched the Flow electric scooter, proving electric vehicles are not just a pipe dream. The Flow represents a further understanding of the customer and their pain points in owning one. Namely, charging and battery longevity. First off, the battery is swappable, making it possible to charge from a socket in your house. Secondly, the company will lease you a secondary battery for even more range. Each battery can deliver up to 80 km of riding, while the top speed of 60 kmph ensures you keep up with traffic. Twenty Two Motors also provides a warranty of 50,000 km on battery and will replace it free of cost if you face battery issues.

It weighs 3,700 kg and if you want to buy it, you will have to ask for a 40.00-57 size. It is a tubeless tyre and the biggest ever made in India. Visitors also experienced the thrill of off-roading at the JK Tyre Ranger Off-road Experience Zone outside Gate No. 11-12, where they rode with national champions such as Hari Singh, negotiating through a series of hurdles such as a 20-feet incline, a 12-feet uneven surface made of boulders and logs and a 30-degree turn. - Rahul Ghosh
