    Hero Vida V1 vs rivals: Price comparison
    Listen to this Article

    The Hero Vida V1 was recently launched in India, with the base V1 Plus priced at Rs 1.45 lakh and the top-spec scooter priced at Rs 1.59 lakh. Considering these prices are ex-showroom, Delhi, the Vida V1 isn’t as affordable as was previously expected. In fact, at these prices, the Vida V1 has the Ola Electric S1 Pro, Ather 450X and Bajaj Chetak in its crosshairs. That said, the Hero e-scooter is loaded to the gills with features like a colour TFT display, Bluetooth connectivity, and is the only model in this price comparison to feature removable batteries. This is a huge convenience for those who face issues with setting up charging points at their homes or live in areas with no parking facilities. 

    Hero Vida V1 vs Ola S1 Pro: Price

    Beginning with the Ola S1 Pro, it is the most affordable scooter in its quartet, priced at Rs 1.30 lakh in Delhi. This price doesn’t include the current festive season discount of Rs 10,000 on the scooter which is valid till Diwali 2022. All said, the Ola S1 Pro is quite feature loaded, with on-board speakers being one of the stand-out ones. Ola also offers the base S1 variant at Rs 1 lakh – it has comparatively fewer features, a smaller battery and reduced performance. 

    Hero Vida V1 vs Ather 450X: Price

    The Ather 450X is another major competitor to the Vida V1 Plus and V1 Pro, with prices in Delhi at the Rs 1.39 lakh mark. The Ather 450X is a feature-loaded, sporty and reliable electric scooter, a fact that it has consistently proven even when  it was with us as a long termer. It’s also the only scooter here that, at present, has an active fast-charger network. If the Ather 450X seems out of reach due to its prices, one can also opt for the 450 Plus variant that sits below it, at Rs 1.17 lakh. It, as expected, has lower performance and battery range than the 450X.

    Hero Vida V1 vs Bajaj Chetak: Price

    This brings us to the Bajaj Chetak, which costs Rs 1.51 lakh in Delhi. It sits bang in between the Vida V1 Plus and Vida V1 Pro’s pricing, although it isn’t as feature loaded as them. For instance, it doesn’t have a touchscreen display and makes do with a simpler LCD unit. What works in Bajaj's favour is its impressive styling and build quality, while the performance is decent in the city. What’s worth mentioning is, unlike the rest of the scooters, the Bajaj Chetak doesn’t have a lower-spec variant.
