India: Hyderabad-based startup developed the electric scooter EPluto 7G
A Hyderabad-based startup company PURE EV launched an electric scooter that can travel 116 KM with a single charge. EPluto 7G, which has an International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT)-certified range of 116 km on a single charge, comes with patented battery technology.
The scooter comes with a 2.5 KWH Lithium battery pack which takes four hours to charge. The battery consumes 2.5 units which mean Rs 17 per charge. With Rs 17, you can travel almost 116 KM at 60 Kmph top speed. The scooter has an ex-showroom price of Rs 79,999 and it can reach 0-40 kmph in less than 5 seconds. Consuming just 2.5 units of electricity, the cost of refueling stands at a measly Rs 15-17 per charge depending on the state of operation. Both the battery and the vehicle have been designed and developed factoring in Indian terrain and weather conditions.
