In the UAE, TVS Motor, an Indian motorbike manufacturer, debuted the TVS X electric two-wheeler. The electric scooter costs Rs 249,990 (Dh11,120) from the company, and the first 2,000 purchasers will receive extra perks. The TVS Motor Company’s director and CEO, KN Radhakrishnan, declared that reservations have already begun and that deliveries will start in India in November 2023.
KN Radhakrishnan disclosed during the inaugural event that “We plan to expand it to other cities in the last quarter of this financial year.” This action represents the company’s intentions to broaden the geographic scope of its electric mobility solutions.
The TVS X electric scooter has some interesting features. Based on the Indian driving cycle, it has a top speed of 105 km/h and a range of 140 km. With a 0-60 km/h time of 4.5 seconds and an 0-40 km/h time of just 2.6 seconds, the scooter has impressive acceleration. The motor has a 7 kW rating with an 11 kW peak power. The battery that was installed also has a 4.44 kWh capacity. A 3000W charger can quickly charge the scooter to 50% of its capacity at home in about 50 minutes.
The managing director of TVS Motor, Sudarshan Venu, underlined the importance of using sustainable transportation options to combat climate change on a worldwide scale. “Considering how people all over the world have been impacted by climate change, it is encouraging to see steps taken in the mobility sector to reduce carbon footprint,” he said.
Venu further emphasized the significance of the Indian market for the production of electric vehicles. India has the world’s largest two-wheeler market and the economy with the greatest rate of growth. The government’s initiatives to stimulate investment in electric vehicles are motivating for Indian businesses. Additionally, consumers in India set worldwide trends. Globally, consumers’ demand for EVs is rising, he continued.
With the release of its first electric scooter, the iQube, by TVS Motor in 2020, the company has already achieved progress in the electric mobility market. IQube, which costs Rs 123,776 in Delhi, has amassed a sizable subscriber base in just three years. With hundreds of thousands of satisfied consumers, it has become one of the top brands in just three years, according to Sudarshan Venu, who expressed hope for the future. Additionally, the future looks quite good.
A display on the Burj Khalifa commemorated the debut of the TVS X. The importance of this turning point for the electric vehicle sector was further highlighted by this magnificent gesture. While meeting the changing needs of customers around the world, TVS Motor is prepared to make a substantial contribution to sustainable transportation solutions as it sets out on this journey to expand its electric mobility footprint.
