The choice of electric scooters in the Indian market is about to be ‘fast-charged’ with many new launches lined up throughout the calendar year. Here are top upcoming electric scooters for 2020 in India with their expected (ex-showroom) prices and launch dates. Note that some of the launch dates are from the guidance received before the full impact of the COVID-19 was felt in India and some launches have been pushed from 2020 to 2021.

Ather 450X

Ather 450X

Though it was not the first brand to launch an electric scooter, Ather Energy gave a big push to the Indian electric scooter segment with its exciting features and design. Their in-house developed 450 was the first step by an Indian EV company to create excitement in this segment, and this year they have already launched an updated 450X, with deliveries set to begin in the third quarter of the year. The Ather 450X received several performance and feature upgrades over the 450, but it also costs considerably higher. A more powerful battery (2.9 kWh) and motor (6 kW) with a peak torque of 26 Nm (up from 20 Nm) make the 450X accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in just 6.5 seconds, confirming that it is the quickest scooter in India. Ather will launch the 450X in 10 cities in FY2021 and take it to 24 cities by FY2022.
