Goodbye 2022: Top electric two-wheelers launched in 2022
In the past few years, the electric two-wheeler market has flourished drastically. People have started accepting electric two-wheelers in their daily life. The main reasons behind this are the increasing cost of petrol and the government's subsidies. So, people have started moving towards alternative sources of energy.
This is where electric vehicles make a lot of sense for people whose daily commute does not change. So, they can charge the vehicle at their office building or overnight at their home. Such people know how much distance they have to cover so they don't really have to suffer from range anxiety as well. Here are the top four electric scooters that were launched in the Indian market.
Ather 450X Gen 3
Ather Energy was one of the first manufacturers to launch an electric scooter in the Indian market. Their scooter 450X has proved its reliability in our harsh climatic conditions. If a person wants to buy a no-nonsense electric scooter then there is a high chance that he or she would end up buying an Ather. The brand launched Gen 3 of their 450X electric scooter. Ather upgraded the battery pack so the TrueRange is now 105 km on a single charge. The maximum power output of the motor was also uprated. Other updates include a wider rear tyre, a new set of rearview mirrors and 2 GB RAM for the dashboard.
