Bounce Infinity Electric Scooter Price Announced in India
The rapid growth of the electric two-wheeler segment in India has encouraged not only conventional car manufacturers but also various startups to enter the field of electric mobility. We’ve already seen Ola jump on the EV train here with the S1 line of scooters. We now have another startup entering the electric two-wheeler space in India in the form of Bounce, a Bengaluru-based last mile connectivity startup. The company launched the Bounce Infinity electric scooter in India at 79,999 (ex-showroom). However, the scooter can cost as little as 59,999 after EV subsidies offered by various states across the country. It should be noted that the price mentioned above is for the scooter with battery and charger.
However, if you choose the Battery as a Service option, the cost of the scooter will be around 36,000. This option allows customers to purchase the scooter without purchasing the battery. Instead of purchasing the battery, customers can rent the battery from the company and choose a subscription package to use the exchange network. And that brings us to the highlight of this new electric scooter; Bounce Infinity comes with a swappable battery and the company has partnered with Park + to set up battery swap stations in over 3,500 locations in 10 cities (initially). In a nutshell, a customer can rent a battery from the exchange station and then replace the depleted battery with a fully charged battery. However, this service is not free for customers.
Bounce has started accepting bookings from Infinity in India for a token amount of 499 and deliveries will start from March 2022.
The Bounce Infinity scooter comes with a 2kWh battery that powers an electric motor to generate 83Nm of maximum torque. The e-scooter offers a range of 85 km / charge in Eco mode and can reach a top speed of 65 km / h. In addition to using the swap function, customers can also charge the battery of the Infinity electric scooter using a conventional outlet in less than five hours. The braking equipment includes front and rear disc brakes and while the suspension setup uses telescopic forks.
The Bounce Infinity Scooter will be available with a choice of five colors: red, white, black, gray and silver. Additionally, customers can also choose from a range of body graphics to personalize their scooter. And when it comes to features, it comes with a digital instrument cluster, smartphone connectivity, and a smartphone app that offers a plethora of information to the owner, including the nearest exchange station and location. geolocation. The scooter also has a reverse mode, a drag mode (to slide the scooter in the event of a puncture), cruise control, Eco mode and Power mode.
