The Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler startup Simple Energy has announced that it will be launching its first flagship electric scooter “Simple One” on August 15, 2021. The company also released the Simple One teaser. Previously, Simple Energy had postponed the introduction of the electric scooter earlier due to the second wave of Covid-19.
The company reportedly plans to launch the electric two-wheeler in 13 states in the first phase.
To compete against Ola Electric Scooter
Ola Electric has also announced that it will launch its first electric scooter on August 15th. So the two-wheelers compete against each other.
The Simple One electric scooter is said to cover a distance of 240 km when fully charged, while the Ola electric scooter can offer a range of 150 km when fully charged.
Hence, Ola’s electric scooter can get stiff competition from Simple One.
Once launched, it will also compete with Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube’s upcoming new scooters in the Indian market.

The Simple One electric scooter has been spotted testing in India on several occasions. The Simple One electric scooter has a 4.8 kWh lithium-ion battery that generates 9.4 hp and 72 Nm of torque.
