Ampere Autos launched two e-scooters – the Ampere V48 and Reo Li-Ion, priced at Rs 38,00Zero and Rs 46,000 (ex-showroom, India), respectively – together with a lithium-ion battery pack charger on Could 11 in New Delhi. There isn’t any further registration price relevant on the electrical two-wheelers as they provide the most pace restricted to 25kph.
Because the launch of its low-cost charger for lead-acid battery scooters in last 12 months, the corporate has been engaged on indigenously growing electrical motors, battery controllers, in addition to chargers for lithium-ion battery powered scooters.
The e-scooters get a 250W brushless DC motor, powered by a 48V lithium-ion battery pack. Whereas the Ampere V48 is able to carry 100kg of most load, the Reo has a hauling capability of 120kg. The e-scooters provide a range of 65-70km per cost, with the full-charge time various from 4-5 hours.
