Pune-based two wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto has launched its electric scooter Chetak at a starting price of ₹1,00,000 (ex-showroom and inclusive of government subsidies). The electric Chetak, which has been developed and designed in-house by Bajaj, marks the revival of the company’s scooter business after about a decade and also Bajaj Auto's foray into the electric vehicle space.
The company plans to roll out the new scooter in a phased manner, with sales beginning from Bangalore and Pune. Bajaj has selected 13 pro-biking dealerships in Bangalore and four stores in Pune which will retail the new Chetak.
"We would like to first observe the demand for the electric Chetak in Bangalore and Pune to get an understanding of this emerging space," said Rakesh Sharma, executive director at Bajaj Auto Ltd.
The company will open bookings for the electric Chetak from 15 January, and the electric scooter will go on sale with six variants across two model lines - urban and premium. With a running range of about 95 km per charge, the company said that it will offer a warranty of 3 years or 50,000 km, whichever is earlier.
"We plan to get the first electric vehicle right as the technology is new," said Rajiv Bajaj, managing director, Bajaj Auto Ltd.
