Bounce Infinity E1 Subscription Plans: Pricing and Benefits

The Bounce Infinity E1 is available in two subscription models: BAAS1 and BAAS2. Both systems are essentially leasing structures in which Bounce aims to use its battery exchange infrastructure network to further reduce the e-scooter cost of ownership.

BAAS1 package

  • Gujarat – Rs 47,999
  • Maharashtra – Rs 57,999
  • Rajasthan – Rs 60,999
  • Karnataka – Rs 56,999
  • All other states – Rs 67,999

Beyond the initial cost, customers must support a telecom plan as a recurring subscription plan:

  • Monthly battery subscription as a service – Rs 849
  • Price per swap – Rs 35

This brings the effective price per KM down to Rs 0.65.

BAAS2 package

  • Delhi – Rs 45,099
  • Gujarat – Rs 36,099
  • Maharashtra-Rs 46,099
  • Rajasthan – Rs 49,099

As you can see, the initial cost of ownership in BAAS1 remains comparatively higher, while the recurring costs after purchase decrease. However, in the case of the BAAS2 ownership option, the initial upfront cost is reduced, while the cost of ownership after purchase remains slightly higher between the two regimes.

Bounce Infinity E1 Specifications

Range, modes and maximum speed

Bounce Infinity E1

The Bounce Infinity E1 pairs a BLDC electric motor with its built-in swappable 2KWhr 48V battery and offers a top speed of 65 km/h in Power mode while in Eco mode it offers a range of 85 km. However, with the battery swap technology that comes with the Infinity E1, the e-scooter can offer unlimited range as advertised, provided swap stations are available at reasonable intervals.

Battery and charging

the The 2KWhr 48V battery on board the Infinity E1 e-scooter has been designed for easy swapping and is IP67 certified. In the case of a normal use case, one can easily recharge the battery in around 4 hours to extract the claimed range of 85 km. Instead, the battery can be replaced with a charged battery that will be available on a network of battery swapping stations that Bounce aims to establish. This technique essentially reduces the charging time to a few minutes, similar to what one experiences at a gas station. So Bounce’s Battery-as-a-Service ownership scheme comes in handy.

Performance and durability

The Bounce Infinity E1 with a claimed top speed of 65 km/h is powerful enough for an intra-urban runabout. The e-scooter brings a variety of practical features which include – 12 inch alloys with a disc brake system, under seat helmet storage, a sturdy chassis and a telescopic front suspension. The Infinity E1 also offers a 120 section rear tyre, a 90 section front tire and 155mm ground clearance for Indian roads.
