The ‘Simple One’ name has been trademarked for Simple Energy’s upcoming electric scooter. Simple Energy is a Bangalore-based electric vehicle startup. The brand had earlier revealed that it was working on an electric scooter codenamed Mark2. The latest trademark filing has revealed that this scooter might be called the Simple One.
Electric scooters are the next big thing in India. There are several electric startups in the Indian market. Some of them have already made it big while some others are still trying to get there. Simple Energy is one of those EV brands that is currently showing a lot of promise.
The Simple One electric scooter, previously codenamed Mark2 comes with what seems like some groundbreaking specifications. Simple Energy claims that the scooter can accelerate from 0-50km/h in just 3.6 seconds and it is claimed to have a top speed of 100km/h. This makes it the fastest electric scooter in the country.
The Simple One is not one to be left out in terms of range either. Simple Energy claims it has a range of around 240 kilometres on one charge. It is powered by a 4.8kWh removable/swappable battery that drives the mid-mounted motor. A belt delivers the final drive to the wheel sprocket.
In terms of technology too, the Simple One is not so simple. It comes with a touchscreen for instrumentation, and navigation, etc. The screen will come with Bluetooth smartphone connectivity too.
Simple Energy plans to launch the Simple One on 15 August, 2021. It will initially be launched in Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad. Other cities will follow at a later stage. Prices for the Simple One are expected to start at around Rs 1,30,000. The Simple One will compete with the Ather 450X and the upcoming Ola Scooter.
