The Bajaj Chetak electric scooter saw its first price hike.

Bajaj had launched its electric scooter, the Chetak in two variants – Urbane and Premium. The Urbane is the more affordable variant and was originally launched at Rs 1 lakh, and now costs Rs 1.15 lakh. The Premium variant, meanwhile, was priced at Rs 1.15 lakh, and it now costs Rs 1.20 lakh.

To recap, the Premium model gets additional metallic color options, a dark / light beige saddle, metallic colored wheels and a front disc brake. The Urbane model, meanwhile, lacks the metallic color option and uses a drum brake up front.

It is powered by a 3.8 kW / 4.1 kW (continuous / peak power) electric motor, which sends power to the rear wheel through an automated transmission. This motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery that claims to offer an actual range of 95 km in Eco mode and 85 km in Sport mode. Bajaj also offers a three year / 50,000 km warranty on the IP67 rated battery. The charging time on the Chetak is 5 hours for 100% and 1 hour for 25%.

In terms of competition, the Chetak faces the Ather 450 Plus (Rs 1.28 lakh) and the Ather 450X (Rs 1.47 lakh). It also rivals the iQube TVS, which is priced at Rs 1.08 lakh.

All prices, ex-showroom, Delhi.
