Bajaj Auto is now ready to launch its first electric scooter, which may be called by the name of e-Chetak or Chetak Chic Electric, on the 16th of October at a special event named ‘Hamara Kal’. The new e-scooter which will be a part of Bajaj's new sub-brand Urbanite will take on Ather 450.
The e-scooter was spotted testing on the streets of Pune. It sports a retro design, kind of similar to larger Vespas available abroad. Bajaj might even try to revive the Chetak label on the new e-scooter.
Spy images of the upcoming e-scooter suggest that it will sport a neo-retro design reminiscent of the large capacity Vespas from the international market. Just like the original Chetak, this e-scooter, too, will have a single-sided front fork for suspension. Not many details have been revealed through any sources, but we can hope to see a premium electric scooter which can possibly challenge all other models from the same segment.
The e-scooter is expected to come with premium features like LED lighting all-round, Bluetooth connectivity, and various Artificial Intelligence features. When people saw the e-scooter on the streets of Pune, it was being tested alongside Ather 450
, e-Chetak's main rival to be understood.
We can expect the new e-scooter to be priced around Rs.1 lakh as Bajaj will look to undercut Ather Energy’s popular e-scooter by a significant margin.
