Bounce Infinity E1
This is the first Indian scooter that comes with swappable batteries and you can buy one without a battery for Rs 45,099. Buyers can rent fully charged batteries by opting for the company’s unique ‘Battery as a service’ option which will be available through a dedicated battery swapping network. The Bengaluru-based start-up claims that this will cut the running cost of the scooter by nearly 40 per cent as compared to conventional scooters.
The E1 gets a two-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that offers a claimed range of 85 km per charge, promises to go from 0 to 40 km/h in eight seconds, and maxes out at 65 km/h. The battery pack is said to take about four to five hours to get charged from a regular home socket. This e-scooter has made it to our list for this interesting proposition and because the deliveries will start from March this year. Only time will tell if India will bounce to this new concept.
