most important feature of the One is its detachable battery pack. The compact power source can be removed from the frame at the turn of a key and fits into any small backpack quite easily. That means you can charge the battery at home or at your desk when at work. This is particularly useful if you live in an apartment building; no more arguing with the neighbours about using the common power outlet to charge your electric vehicle. Tronx Motors claim that the battery charges to full capacity within three to four hours and has a range of 50 km.
In spite of the lightweight frame, the Tronx One tips the scales at 25 kg (without battery). Once the battery is plugged in, the One’s weight is apparent. The bulk, although not too intrusive to rob you of the fun factor, will not complement very sporty riding styles.
you might be wondering why you should consider a Tronx One over its rivals (sporty models from premium brands), especially when the One is priced at Rs 49,999. The answer is quite simple: it is a jack of all trades. agreed, it is not a master of a particular cycling discipline, but by being versatile, it does make a strong case for itself as an everyday vehicle for a wide range of users — from school kids to fitness enthusiasts to working professionals who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
Of course, a more accessible price tag and a sharper design could have worked in its favour. However, if you are desirous of doing your bit for the environment and work out a bit while at it, you could make this your vehicle of choice for short distances.
