    BGauss India has launched the D15 Electric scooter. The BGauss D15 is available in two variants – D15i and D15Pro. The difference between the two is that the D15i gets a single lithium-ion battery, while the latter gets an additional valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery.

    The BGauss D15 is powered by a hub mounted 3.1kW PMSM motor that develops 110Nm of peak torque. There are three modes – Eco, Sport and Reverse. BGauss claims the scooter can accelerate from 0-40kph in 7sec in Sport mode and hit a top speed of 60kph. The top speed falls to 50kph in Eco mode.  

    The BGauss D15i variant has a IP67 rated, removable, 3.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack that takes 5 hours and 30mins to attain 100 percent charge, whereas charging up to 80 percent takes 4 hours. An optional fast charger brings the time taken to fully charge the battery down to 1 hour and 30 mins. 

    The scooter has an ARAI-certified range of 115km in a single charge. 

    While the BGauss D15 Pro variant has the same lithium-ion battery as the D15i, with the same charging times, it also gets a secondary VRLA battery.
