eBikeGo on Wednesday launched Rugged electric scooters in the Indian market in two versions - G1 and G1+, with a starting price of 79,999. The G1+ has been priced at 89,999 and both prices include FAME II subsidies. The prices, however, would go down further once state-level subsidies are brought into play. While it is an attractive price proposition, the Rugged electric scooters are banking on range and performance to further bolster its case in a fast expanding electric scooter market in the country.

Rugged electric scooter boast of two 2 kWh batteries that can be replaced. eBikeGo claims that the batteries can be charged in 3.5 hours and have a range of around 160 kms. There is also a 3kW motor that helps the electric scooter to hit a top speed of 70 kmph. “We are extremely happy to announce the launch of Rugged, India's most sustainable, intelligent, and sturdy electric moto-scooter, after significant study and a three-year wait," said Irfan Khan, Founder of and CEO at eBikeGo.
