Watch: TVS iQube electric scooter: Road test review

In India, TVS Motor Company expanded its electric vehicle range by introducing two new variants of the iQube scooter. These include a 2.2 kWh version and a 3.4 kWh iQube ST variant. The new entry-level variant with a 2.2 kWh battery pack is offered at an introductory ex-showroom price starting at Rs. 94,999, while the 3.4 kWh TV iQube ST is priced at 1.55 lakh.

Earlier, TVS Motor Company reported a smaller-than-expected fourth-quarter profit due to higher costs overshadowing steady demand for its two-wheelers. The company’s profit rose 18.3 per cent from a year earlier to 485 crore ($58 million) for the quarter ending March 31, missing analysts' estimate of 552 crore.

Revenue from operations rose nearly 24 per cent to 81.69 billion, surpassing analysts' estimates of 80.08 billion. However, this revenue increase was offset by a nearly 22 per cent rise in total expenses, primarily driven by a more than 23 per cent increase in the cost of materials consumed.
