Benling Aura electric scooter launched at Rs 99,000

After unveiling the scooter at the EV Expo in Delhi in December 2019, Benling India has launched the Aura electric scooter this week priced at Rs 99,000 on-road Bangalore, with an operating cost of about 20 paise/km. The Aura is the company’s first high-speed model for the company which has three low-speed scooters – Kriti, Icon and Falcon.

The Benling Aura is powered by a detachable 72V/40Ah lithium-ion battery that powers a 1200W BLDC electric motor. In a single charge, the scooter will give a claimed range of 90-100 km with a top speed of 60 km/hour.

The detachable battery gets charged to its full capacity in four hours through a regular household power socket. The Aura tips the scales at 95 kg and has a ground clearance of 165 mm, much better than most of the scooters. Notable features include remote keyless system, USB charging, anti-theft alarm and rear-wheel integrated locking system.

One of the defining features of Benling Aura as per the company is the Breakdown Smart Assistance System (BSAS). In case of a breakdown, the BSAS allows the scooter to be restarted and run for around 15 to 20 km at low speed at the touch of a button. The Aura will also be equipped with Benling’s Smart Parking Assistance feature, which will stop the scooter from moving when activated, kind of like a parking brake.

Benling India launched its operations in May 2019. The firm has launched three low-speed models – Kriti, Icon and Falcon – that come with a range of 70 to 75 km.
