Bounce Electric has announced that the production company has started the production of the Infinity E1 and from April 18, 2022, this electric scooter will start getting to the customers. This affordable Electric Scooter can also be bought without a battery for which the ‘Battery as a Service’ option will come in handy.

New Delhi : Bengaluru-based Bounce Electric, an electric vehicle manufacturing startup, has started production of its new electric scooter Bounce Infinity E1. The company’s first production plant is located in Rajasthan, but now the company is preparing to build a plant in South India also where 5 lakh EVs can be made annually. Bounce’s Infinity E1 is the industry’s first electric scooter to be offered with battery, charger and battery as a service option. The price of this electric scooter with battery and charger is Rs 68,999, while without battery i.e. with battery service option, the price of this EV goes up to Rs 45,099.

‘Battery as a Service’ option

Bounce has introduced the Infinity in 5 colours. This scooter is made available with battery and without battery option. Under the ‘Battery as a Service’ option, customers can buy this EV without a battery. With this price, the company has created a huge competition in the electric two-wheeler segment and now it is a matter of concern for Bajaj Chetak Electric, TVS iQube, Ather 450X as well as Ola electric scooters as their prices are very high.

Gives 85 km range in a single charge

The Bounce Infinity is powered by a 2 kWh-R lithium-ion battery that delivers a range of 85 km on a single charge. The maximum speed of this EV is 65 km/h. Drag mode has also been given in the Bounce Infinity, with the help of which the scooter can be driven even if it is punctured. The new EV can also be connected to a smart app, which will make it much easier to use the features.

Production continues at Bhiwadi plant in Rajasthan

The company has announced that, in 2021, it has acquired 100 percent of 22Motors for about Rs 52 crore. Under this deal, the electric vehicle manufacturer has acquired rights over 22Motors’ Bhiwadi plant in Rajasthan and the property there. This plant can produce 1,80,000 scooters annually. Apart from this, the company has also announced a policy to start a new plant in South India.
