After Ola Electric launched its first electric scooter the day before, another local manufacturer, Simple Energy, launched a new Simple One scooter in the country priced at Rs 1.10 (formerly Showroom, India). In this price category, the simple one electric scooter is more expensive than the TVSiQube and OlaS1 electric scooters, but better than the Ather 450 Plus and Bajaj Chetak electric scooters on the market.
The electric scooter is eligible for a FAME II subsidy of up to Rs 60,000. Therefore, actual car prices may differ due to government subsidies. The company also offers refundable advance bookings through Rs 1,947 on the website.
Simple One E-Scooter: Specs
One of them is a 4.5 kW motor with a maximum torque of 72 Nm. This car accelerates the scooter to 0-40 km / h in 2.95 seconds. In this case, the maximum speed indicated is 98 km / h or 105 km / h, depending on the choice of tires. There are four types of electric scooters: Eco, Ride, Dash, and Sonic. One also drives the rear wheels using a chain drive.
Simple Energy says it uses an “internal chassis design for engine and brakes.” One uses 12-inch wheels on both sides with telescopic suspension and mono-shock forks. As with almost all other electric scooters, braking is done with disc brakes. The scooter is available in two tire specifications. One variant has 90 / 90-12 front and rear tires, while another variant uses 100 / 80-12 (front) and 110 / 80-12 (rear) tires. One Electric Scooter carries one of the tightest turns in its class – 110 kg.
The cube battery has a machine-built metal outer shell and an upper handle. The 4.8 kWh lithium-ion batteries are removable. The One’s total battery capacity is almost double that of the Ather450X (2.61 kWh) and more than double that of the TVS iQube (2.25 kWh).
It also has more storage capacity than the recently released Ola S1 and S1 Pro devices. This is one of the reasons Simple Energy can request a real distance of 203 km (eco-mode). It takes 2.75 hours to partially charge the battery from 0% to 80% using a home charger.
Features and details
The display uses a 7.0-inch touchscreen with 4G and Bluetooth connectivity. Features include music and call control, navigation, vehicle tracking, and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
At 1.10 lakh (former showroom) (excluding government subsidies) SimpleOne is more expensive than TVSiQube (1.01 lakh) and Ola S1 (1 lakh), but lower than Ather 450 Plus (for Rs.1,13 lakh) and Bajaj Chetak (1.42 lakh).
