NEW DELHI: The Bajaj Auto today launched its electric scooter (e-scooter) under the iconic Chetak brand, marking its comeback in the scooter market.
According to Bajaj Auto statement, Pune will be the first city where the bike would be sold in January while Bengaluru would be the second one. Sales will be based on demand coming from these two cities.
It will be sold from the existing Probiking network with KTM and Husqvarna. Expectations are that the price of the Chetak electric scooter will not be more than Rs 1.5 lakh, although the company has not yet disclosed the price of its new Chetak scooter. Prices will be announced before it starts dispatching vehicles to showrooms.
The range of the Chetak electric scooter will be 95 km in the Eco mode and 85 km in Sport mode. A total of six colour options will be available with the new Bajaj Chetak electric scooter.
According to Bajaj Auto Managing Director Rajiv Bajaj, the company wanted to be the first mover in the electric segment as an established player in the two-wheeler industry.
The e scooter will also have features to protect it from theft and the owner will get notifications in case of an accident or unauthorized access.
