Bengaluru-based electric vehicle startup Simple Energy has upgraded the motor for its flagship scooter - Simple One, which is scheduled to be delivered to customers June onwards. The new motor helps boost the performance of the scooter by offering better efficiency and thermal management.

The new motor is an upgrade to the already existing high-spec motor, both produced by the company itself, making it the only electric scooter OEM to develop or manufacture its own motors in the country. The new motor can produce 72 Nm of torque, which Simple Energy claims is the highest in the segment and has never been achieved on a form factor of this compact size.
