    Hero Electric AE-47 unveiled at Auto Expo 2020

    Hero Electric has revealed a number of new products at Auto Expo 2020, and like we reported earlier, these include a ‘high-speed’ motorcycle, a scooter and a trike. The motorcycle has been dubbed AE-47 and is one of Hero Electric’s most premium offerings yet.

    The AE-47 is powered by a 6kW motor, with the company claiming that top speed of 100kph, and a 0-60kph time of 9sec. What’s also impressive is the claimed range of the motorcycle – the 3.5kWh Li-ion battery returns 85km in Power mode, and 160km in Eco mode. Full charge to 100 percent is said to take just 4 hours.

    Other features include a disc brake on both ends – 290mm at the front and 215mm at the rear – and a combined braking system. The AE-47 features a telescopic fork and monoshock, and Hero Electric also tells us that it will feature a cruise control system, a digital instrument cluster, keyless access, a mobile charging port, and a reverse gear as well. Like a lot of electric two-wheelers these days, the AE-47 will supposedly also come with smartphone connectivity via an app that will enable real-time tracking and geo-fencing.

    When it does go on sale later this year, the AE-47 – expected to be priced from Rs 1.3 lakh-1.5 lakh – will be quite expensive compared to the rest of Hero Electric’s line-up.

    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.
