Simple One Electric Scooter: New Entry to the EV Party!
Simple One Electric Scooter: On August 15, Simple Energy, a Bengaluru-based two-year-old start-up that makes electric vehicles (EVs), launched Simple One, an electric scooter priced at Rs 1.1 lakh.
Among the 13 states in which the Simple One will be offered are Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Punjab, and Delhi. Currently, the Simple One is priced (ex-showroom, without state subsidies) below that of the Ather 450, TVS iQube, and Ola Electric S1.
Simple One’s start-up claims that the scooter can reach a top speed of 105 km/hour depending on its tire type with a 236 km maximum ride range. Battery capacity is 4.8 kWh, and charging it to 80 percent takes less than three hours.
Simple One Electric Scooter Patents
It was reported that Simple Energy has patented a brake design and a motor chassis in-house. There are 12-inch wheels on both ends of the One, and the bike is equipped with a telescopic fork and a mono-shock for suspension. Electric scooters are almost all equipped with disc brakes for braking. Two tire specifications are available for the scooter. A 100/80-12 (front) and 110/80-12 (rear) tire is used on one variant, whereas a 90/90-12 rubber is used on the other. Electric scooters like the One have some of the lightest curb weights in their class, at 110kg.
Features of Simple One
Designed for ease of use, Simple One features four modes of operation: Eco, Ride, Dash, and Sonic. It is almost the same size as the Ola S1’s dashboard, which provides navigation, geo-fencing, an SOS alert system, and Bluetooth connectivity instructions.
On the Simple One, you can perform over-the-air updates, control music, call calls, locate fast chargers, perform preventive maintenance, find your bike, and track vehicles. The 110 kg scooter comes in four colors – Red, White, Black, and Blue – and has a boot capacity of 30 liters.
Founder Shreshth Mishra said during the launch event that Simple Energy always had in mind offering the longest charge range and its products should be long-lasting.
Simple Energy plans to launch an electric bike in 13 states during the next few months after setting up a charging network. The company is working on setting up more than 300 charging stations throughout these states.
