ROAD LESS TRAV­ELLED

Mail Today - - NEWS -

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.
