The premium electric scooter was launched in April


Ampere Electric has commenced deliveries of the Nexus electric scooter. The EV was launched in April 2024 and is the company’s premium offering. The deliveries are being carried out in a phased manner starting from Bengaluru.

The Ampere Nexus is based on a new platform and is powered by a 4kW electric motor that can propel it to a top speed of 93kmph in 'Power' mode.

Switch to City mode and the top speed of the scooter is limited to 63kmph. There’s a Eco mode as well to maximise range but it also limits the top speed of the scooter to 42kmph. In addition to these three modes, there is a Limp Home mode which kicks in when the battery percentage drops below 20 percent. The Ampere Nexus also gets a reverse mode for added convenience.

As for the battery specifications, it has a 3kWh, IP67 rated battery which is of the LFP type and has a certified range of 136km. Ampere claims that it takes a little over three hours to charge.

Under the neatly designed bodywork, there’s a new, underbone chassis that is suspended by a telescopic fork and twin shock absorbers. The scooter rides on 12-inch alloy wheels while braking duties will be taken care of by a disc brake at the front and drum brake at the rear.

The Ampere Nexus is also quite feature rich in the top spec ST variant which gets a 7-inch touchscreen, TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity.

The Nexus was launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.10 lakh for EX version and Rs 1.20 lakh for the ST version. In terms of competition, the scooter goes up against the TVS iQube, the Ola S1 range and the newly launched Ather Rizta.
