Electric scooters in India are in the fast lane with new products being launched or announced by the dozen. With subsidies on offer in several states, buying an electric scooter may have never been as lucrative as it currently is. And looking at jumping the EV bandwagon is Bengaluru-based Simple Energy which is all set to officially launch its first product on August 15.

Simple Energy electric scooter's name:

Simple Energy trademarked the name 'Simple One' earlier this month. Previously codenamed Mark2, the electric scooter is looking at finding favour among those wanting to ride home on a battery-powered option. "We are elated to announce the name of the first electric vehicle by Simple Energy. The name Simple One will give the right essence from the brand and product perspective," Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO of the company, said previously.
