After Bengaluru, TVS has launched its new iQube electric scooter in Delhi primarily due to the incentives offered by the new EV policy in the state.
The TVS iQube electric scooter was launched in Bengaluru in January last year at an on-road price of ₹1.15 lakh. And today, TVS has launched it in New Delhi at a relatively lower on-road price of ₹1.08 lakh (post-FAME & Delhi state subsidy). The scooter will be available at select dealerships across the city in a single white colour option and bookings can be made online on the TVS website as well, for ₹5,000. Plus, the iQube also falls under TVS Credit’s finance schemes.
Powering the TVS iQube is a 4.4kW (5.9bhp) electric motor that draws its power from a 2.25kWh Li-ion battery. With a top speed of 78km/h, the iQube can travel up to 75kms on a full charge. Its 0-40km/h time is pegged at 4.2 seconds. As for the battery, it can be charged in five hours via a standard 5A wall socket.
On the feature front, TVS is offering the iQube with its SmartXonnect platform that works via a digital TFT instrument cluster. Coupled with the iQube smartphone app, the SmartXonnect system allows the rider to access a multitude of connected features & information such as navigation assist, geo-fencing, battery charge status, last park location, riding range indicator, ride stats, speed alert and incoming call/SMS alerts.
Apart from connected features, the iQube also comes with a ‘Q-park Assist’, all-LED lighting, an illuminated logo, Economy & Power ride modes, day & night display as well as regenerative braking (energy from the brakes used to charge the battery).
For charging support, TVS is offering iQube customers the choice of a ‘SmartXHome’ charging station that’s kitted with Bluetooth connectivity, live charging status and RFID-enabled security.
