Vida, the EV brand by Hero MotoCorp, is slated to launch its first electric scooter in India on October 7. Ahead of that, the EV maker has teased a few details of the scooter. In a tweet, it claimed that the upcoming electric Vida scooter would come with a modular charging technology with portable batteries, allowing the riders to power up whenever and wherever they want.
The Vida electric scooter, upon launch, will take on rivals such as Ola S1, Ather 450X, TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak, among others. Vida has promised that the new electric scooter will redefine the electric two-wheeler segment and offer a range of best-in-class features.

Expect the upcoming electric scooter to focus majorly on safety and range. However, it won't be a low-speed offering with a keen eye on the performance credentials of rivals. Upon launch, this is going to be the brand's first-ever electric two-wheeler offering.
