BGauss set to launch two fully made in India electric scooters
BGauss has announced that it will launch two new fully made in India electric scooters by the end of 2021, further expanding its product line up to four models. BGauss currently has two electric scooters — B8 and A2, to cater to the ever-growing demand for EVs in the country. Along with these two new electric scooters BGauss is also planning to expand its dealership network to 100 showrooms by March 2022.
New electric scooters
BGauss has not revealed any specs of its two upcoming electric scooters or the segment in which they will be offered, just that they will be fully made in India. To keep the manufacturing costs in check, BGauss might design these two new electric scooters such that they can share cycle parts and features with its current scooters on sale — A2 and B8. If this is the case, we can expect features like keyless start/stop, side stand sensor, reverse assist, riding modes, anti-theft alarm, anti-theft motor lock, dedicated mobile app and LED instrument panel. Now as to what powertrain will be used also remains to be seen.
Speaking on the announcement, Hemant Kabra, managing director, BGauss said, “I am extremely overwhelmed with the response we have received for BGauss B8, our flagship electric scooter from the Indian consumers since its launch last year in October. This further gives us the confidence to add two new products to our existing portfolio of electric scooters to cater to the growing demands of the e-vehicle enthusiasts in the country by offering an all-encompassing solution that seamlessly blends technology with an affordable, zero-emission, eco-friendly and superior riding experience.We truly believe that electric mobility will define the future of transport and both our scooters have been developed to aid faster adoption of electric two-wheelers in the country. These 100 per cent made in India products will offer more performance, better range, advanced safety features, as well as improved technology making it extremely favourable for long-distance, commutes driving electric mobility’s growth in India.”, Kabra further added.
The next part of BGauss’ plan is to expand its reach to the consumers in Tier I and Tier II markets with plans to open 12 new showrooms across the country by Diwali and up to 100 by March 2022.
