Li-ions Elektrik Solutions, a Gurgaon-based company, has launched its first electric scooter, the Spock, for which prices range between Rs 65,000-99,000 (on-road).
Owing to its commercial design, the Spock features a large basket in the front and a luggage box that occupies the pillion seat. We’ve been informed that the company already has a tie-up with BigBasket for its delivery needs and that 60 percent of scooters purchased so far have been assigned to the e-commerce giant. Furthermore, the company is also in talks with Amazon and Swiggy to add its scooters to the delivery chains’ line-ups.
The Spock is powered by a 2.9kWh swappable battery that works alongside a 2.1kW motor that helps the scooter reach a top speed of 45kph. The Spock also gets two power modes – Economy (130km range), Power (100km range), and Reverse. Other features include GPS navigation, a USB charger, a digital instrument cluster and an optional anti-theft alarm. A low seat height of 760mm and weight (without battery) of 90kg should make the scooter more accessible to most people. It also has a ground clearance of 200mm and sports 90/90 -12 tyres at either end.
The figures claimed by the Spock are certainly impressive and are even better than those of some more established electric scooters in our market. However, the accuracy of these figures and the difference in its real-world performance (if any), remains to be seen.
