Scooters And One Wheels

Easy Vitality will ship the primary e-scooter “Easy One” from June

Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer Simple Energy announced on Wednesday that it will start deliveries of its first electric scooter, Simple One, from June, after more than nine months after its launch.

The company said it has received over 30,000 bookings to date.

The company launched the Simple One electric scooter on August 15 last year at a price of 1.09 rupees.

Simple Energy is preparing to enter the EV market with deliveries of its flagship e-scooter set to begin from June 2022, it said in a statement.

“We understand that electric mobility is the future and that two-wheelers are the vehicle of the masses. It is part of our vision to revolutionize the electric two-wheeler segment and make world-class electric mobility solutions affordable and accessible for people,” said Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO, Simple Energy.

He said the company was delighted with the market response that “Simple One” had received.

“We have some of the best minds in India doing R&D, design and engineering for our products and we are confident that Simple One will exceed customer expectations,” added Rajkumar.

The company also said that its manufacturing facility in Shoolagiri (Hosur), with a capacity to manufacture 1 million vehicles per year, is preparing for mass production and will be operational in the coming weeks.

Earlier last month, Simple Energy announced that it will build its second production unit as part of Phase 2 in Tamil Nadu on 600 acres of land with an initial investment of Rs 1,000 crore, which is expected to be completed by 2023.

In total, the company plans to invest Rs 2,500 crore in the electric vehicle manufacturing facility over the next five years.

Simple One comes with a 4.8kWh lithium-ion battery that offers a maximum range of 236 km and 203 km in Eco mode. The 4G-enabled scooter has a top speed of 105km/h and will feature four driving modes – Eco, Ride, Dash and Sonic, which can be accessed via a 7-inch touchscreen panel.

It comes with features like Bluetooth connectivity, geo-fencing, over-the-air updates, onboard navigation, access to music controls and call controls for the connected smartphone, as well as remote telematics and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

The e-scooter also comes with a removable battery pack that can be charged from any 15A charging socket.
