Avan Motors India, a Pune-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer, unveiled its new smart electric scooter, Trend E, at the Automobile Expo 2019 in Bengaluru last week.
The latest addition to its Xero series of electric scooters, Trend E is powered by a lithium-ion battery and boasts a top speed of 45 Kmph. This is the company’s third e-scooter after the Xero and Xero +.
Trend E has a detachable lithium-ion battery pack and there’s a provision to add another battery to extend the range.
According to the company, Trend E can cover a distance of 60 Km with the standard battery pack and 110km with the additional unit. Charging time for the standard lithium-ion battery is rated at two to four hours.
The e-scooter comes equipped with a hydraulic telescopic front suspension and a coil spring rear suspension. Additionally, the scooter is furnished with alloy wheels, with disc and drum brakes on the front and rear wheels, respectively. It can carry a maximum payload of 150kg, the company claims.
A blend of power, performance and design
Commenting on the launch, Pankaj Tiwari, Business Development Head, Avan Motors, said, “With the Trend E, the latest electric scooter in the Xero series, Avan Motors’ extensive R&D has led to the creation of a scooter that’s a powerful mix of technology and design to meet the needs of the modern rider. Every feature in the Trend E scooter has been added after careful consideration of the requirements and preferences of riders, in order to facilitate a superlative commuting experience.”
Trend E is expected to be made available at a price that is slightly higher than the Xero +, which costs Rs 46,990 for the standard variant and Rs 66,900 for the one with the dual battery setup.
