Ampere Electric Vehicles has pulled the plugs on the Magnus 60 e-scooter after recently launching the Magnus Pro, which is an updated iteration of the Magnus 60 electric scooter.
Unlike the latest Magnus Pro which sports lithium-ion battery pack, the Magnus 60 used an out-dated lead-acid battery technology. It was also one of the slowest scooters in the line-up as it came with a top-speed of just 25 kmph.
