Ola S1 Pro VS Ather 450x VS Simple one VS Bajaj Chetak VS TVS iQube
Electric Scooters in India are slowly stealing the show from petrol scooter since public is getting more and more aware about their advantages. They are cost efficient when compared to petrol scooters and provide a smoother riding experience without any vibrations and turbulence. Other than that, government of India is also providing subsidies on electric scooters up to Rs.7 thousand and central government is also offering subsidies which will depend on the state. We will be comparing some top electric scooters in India which are elite in performance and falls more towards the premium side of electric scooters.
The initial cost of owning an electric scooter in India is higher than a petrol engine scooter, but on the long run it is going to cost way lesser due to low maintenance cost, since petrol price are way higher than electric charging cost. In terms of affordability, out of all these electric scooters Simple One and Ola S1 Pro are the most affordable. Simple One price is Rs.1.09 lakh and Ola S1 Pro price is Rs.1.10 lakh. While Ather 450X price is Rs.1.38 lakh, Bajaj Chetak price is Rs.1.49 lakh and TVS iQube price is Rs.1.38 lakh. All these prices are ex-showroom prices in Delhi (subsidies not included).
In terms of design and build all these scooters feature a futuristic design except the Bajaj Chetak which has more of an old-school and retro vibe to it. Depending on the age group the preferences might change. Futuristic electric scooty design will attract a younger audience and Bajaj Chetak will complement older riders.
While comparing we can comprehend that all these scooter are top tier in the premium scooter segment for a reason. But features and design wise still contrast each other. If one scooter lacks design and performance it might surpass the other on cost efficiency and maintenance cost. It eventually depends on the buyer what specifications they are searching for.
