The nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the outbreak of Covid-19 resulted in temporary suspension of production at Bajaj's Chakan plant. This affected Chetak electric's deliveries and the company had to temporarily suspend the new bookings of the electric scooter. As a result, the previous June delivery plans were allegedly shifted to the third-quarter (September) this year.

The Chetak electric was introduced in the Indian market in January this year and soon after its introduction, the battery powered Chetak managed to garner over 2,000 bookings in just 15 days.
