With the rising pollution, especially in a city like Delhi, people are looking forward for eco-friendly ways of commuting and the government too often comes up with one measure or the other to bring the rising pollution levels down.
Clean energy is the need of the hour and is being focussed upon across the world with about 5-6 million e-scooters and e-bikes being sold every year globally.
Understanding the need, Hero Electric has rolled out its latest e-scooter called Flash at the ongoing GMX show in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan.
The Flash, which is aimed at the first time e-vehicle buyers, comes with a price tag of Rs 19,990 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Hero Electric claims that the Flash e-scooter is easy-to-own and easy-to-maintain two-wheeler in India.
The Hero Electric Flash e-scooter gets its power from a 250W motor mated to a 48V, 20Ah VRLA battery. Hero says Flash can cover a range of 65km on a full charge with a top speed of 25kmph.
The e-scooter is completely short-circuit protected and features under-the-seat storage facility. The scooter will be sold through Hero Electric’s 350 outlets across India.
“It weighs only 87kg, helping it score very high on manoeuvrability. Mag-alloy wheels, telescopic suspension and a full-body crash guard will further enhance its popularity among users and drive greater adoption for e-vehicles in the country,” Sohinder Gill, global CEO, Hero Electric, said.
The vehicle comes in two colours – red black and silver black – and a driving licence or registration is not required to ride it.
