The top speed of the iQube EV is about 78 kmph and it has a range of about 75 kilometres. The battery can be charged fully with the standard 5A charger in about 4-5 hours. The electric motor develops an equivalent of 6 bhp and 140 Nm and the 0-40 kmph sprint is done is 4.2 seconds)
(Full LED lighting offers a premium touch to a handsome and well-proportioned scooter. Like most TVS scooters, the iQube Electric too is laden with features.
(The three battery packs are not removable and can be charged in around 5 hours through a conventional home charger provided with the scooter. It took TVS close to two years to design and develop the iQube)
(There’s no significant compromise in performance, even with a pillion on board, and the pillion seat is quite comfortable. The iQube also allows regenerative braking, so every time you close the throttle to slow down, energy is transferred to re-charge the battery. It runs on 12-inch wheels at both ends, with a telescopic front suspension, and twin rear shocks. Braking duties are handled by a 220 mm front disc brake, and 130 mm rear drum brake, with standard combi-brake system (CBS)
(The fully digital instrument console is Bluetooth enabled and also gets TVS’ SmartXonnect technology, which helps the rider to use an app and get access to the scooter’s stats along with functions such as geo-fencing, navigation, over-speed alert and so on)
