Will be eligible for Government PLI scheme

Vida, the electric vehicle arm of Hero MotoCorp, will launch a new, affordable electric scooter by the end of the year. The scooter is likely to be based on the existing Vida V1 platform, minus the frills to keep costs in check. It will also be larger than the V1 and is going to be positioned as a family scooter.

Recently, patent images of the scooter have surfaced on the internet showcasing the design and other details. It is a mix of form and function, with a large floorboard and seating area. It could feature removable batteries like the V1 does. At present, the Vida V1 has two removable batteries with a total capacity of 3.94kWh and a real world range of 110km. The new scooter could also have the same 6kW (peak), 25Nm electric motor that powers the Vida V1.

The chassis is also likely derived from Vida V1. However, it will have a relatively basic suspension setup, with a coil spring unit at the front and rear. The scooter seems to be riding on 12-inch alloy wheels while the braking setup consists of a disc at the front and drum at the rear.

The electric scooter will be eligible for the Government PLI schemes. This will help Vida price the scooter quite competitively, which will be crucial considering the competition also has affordable scooters in the market.
