For hassle-free ownership, the batteries last for a lifespan of 2,500 cycles that translates to over 180,000 km or around 10 years of use, against other batteries that have a life of about 4 years. Two batteries are stowed from the top and the other two from the left side. The batteries can be charged to full capacity in two and a half hours and the charging stops automatically once they are completely charged.

A 7-inch touchscreen dashboard (running Android 9) supports 4G connectivity, and displays all the necessary information including the navigation, nearest charging station location etc. The 2GO has a 60 per cent gradability and in such cases, the power delivery is automatically adjusted.

The RedE 2GO comes equipped with the RED.E SODB on-board computer developed in-house that detects whether any parts need to be repaired or replaced, allowing the owners to accordingly schedule the service. The company will also be launching the RedE App along with the 2GO’s launch. The app can be used to access a wide range of information like the status of batteries, vehicle parts, GPS location, etc. Using the app, the rider can also lock the e-scooter automatically when he or she moves away and restart when they come back. The 2GO also has an emergency system integrated into it that sends alerts in the event of an accident.
