With the rising cost of fuel, both CNG and electric vehicles are coming to the rescue. While the electric four-wheelers might still be considered expensive, the two-wheelers surely know how to make an entry with the prices and driving range. HOP has now brought in two new electric scooters Lyf and Leo and the prices for the same sticks to Rs 65,500 and Rs 72,500 respectively.
Before we go any further and bring you all the details related to the HOP new electric scooters, make sure you are a member of our 91Wheels Whatsapp group and exclusive 91Wheels Telegram group. Here, we bring you all the latest information related to the Indian Automotive Industry and you also meet like-minded people who share a common interest in anything on wheels.
HOP has launched these two new products to keep the young customers in mind and to promote sustainable mobility. Sharing the specs of HOP Lyf first then it is offered with a dual lithium-ion battery pack and generates 2000w of maximum power. The top speed of this electric scooter is 50 kmph and gets a riding range of 125 km. It is offered in three variants - Lyf Basi, Lyf and Lyf Extended.
On the other hand, the HOP Leo gets a higher motor that generates 2500w power and has a top speed of 60 kmph. The driving range sticks to the same 125 km and packs in a dual lithium-ion battery pack. It also has a similar variant line-up - Leo Basic, Leo and Leo Extended. Both the scooters get three driving modes - Eo, City and Sport.
The noticeable thing about HOP electric scooters is that they start from as low as Rs 65,000 and gets a riding range of 125 km. If you commute 50 km a day then the total cost turns out to be 10 paise per kilometre that is Rs 10 for the whole trip.
Feature-wise, both the electric scooters get a remote key, anti-theft lock, anti-theft alarm, dual-disc brakes, side-stand sensors, reverse gear, park assist and more. The potential buyers can also opt for the GPS and internet connectivity but then again that is available in the accessories department.
For people with range anxiety, HOP is working on a vast infrastructure on battery swap so that the problem is solved in an instant. Here, the customers won't have to pay the price of the battery. Users can swap their drained out battery for fully charged ones and they will be charged for usage of battery and not the total cost. In other news, the electric two-wheeler maker is also working on introducing an e-Bike that gives a riding range of 100 km with a top speed of 100 kmph.
