    Hero Electric AE-29 e-scooter debuts at Auto Expo 2020

    Apart from the AE-47 motorcycle and AE-3 trike, Hero Electric also showcased a new scooter model called the AE-29 that will join its ‘high-speed’ line of scooters. While prices for the same are yet to be announced, the model on display was production-ready and the manufacturer has revealed that it will go on sale in a few months.

    AE-29 will be capable of a top speed of 55kph with its 1kW motor – a considerable improvement over a majority of Hero Electric’s scooters that are capable of speeds under 40kph. The battery, meanwhile, is a 3.5kWh unit that will allow for a claimed range of 80km and take 4 hours to fully charge, according to the company.

    Currently, Hero Electric’s line-up consists of an E2, E5 and ER series and it remains to be seen if ‘AE’ is a new series of products that will offer smart connectivity features and improved range.

    The company also showcased an AE-8 scooter that will offer a range of 80km and a top speed of 25kph.

    It is worth bearing in mind that Hero Electric does not design and develop its own products in house and that these vehicles are sourced from international suppliers. This was the case with nearly all the electric two wheelers on display at the 2020 Auto Expo.
