The website also reveals that the company has started shipping the Chetak Premium to its official dealerships, on the other hand, the lower-spec Chetak Urbane's shipping will start only in June.

The official web portal also says that there is a further delay in the deliveries of the scooter. The bookings done before February 29, 2020 will be shipped only by September this year. This also suggests that the future bookings will also most likely have a longer waiting period even if the product resumes in full-swing.

The Chetak electric is currently available in two cities -Bengaluru and Pune. Bajaj Auto also has plans of expanding its sales to other metro cities such as Delhi and Mumbai, but seeing the current situation expect the expansion plans to take a back seat for now.
