While the company has remained tight-lipped about most of the details about the upcoming scooter, it did reveal that this model will sport a top speed of over 75 kmph. It will be designed for high convenience, and reliability and will be able to attain full charge in just 4 hours from a regular home socket. The company hasn't rolled out details about the model's full charge range, but the same is expected to be somewhere around 120 km to 150 km per charge cycle.

kWh Bikes has previously announced raising $2 million in a seed funding round. The EV startup is now looking forward to hiring senior leadership talent in the software as well as battery domains.

“We are putting together a strong, reliable, safe, high-performance, and feature-packed electric scooter that is being developed keeping the Indian conditions in perspective, and we are aiming to get into production in early 2023. In this regard, we have been offered full support by several state governments. We are proud that we have been able to stretch our seed capital to achieve these outcomes," added Janghu.
