Ampere Greaves has launched its all-new electric scooter in the country called the Magnus Pro and it is priced at Rs.73,990 (ex-showroom India). The new Ampere Magnus Pro is the company's new flagship offering and takes on the commuter petrol-powered 110 cc scooters. The Magnus Pro gets conventional styling that aims to make it more family-friendly but is loaded on features in a bid to make it an attractive proposition.
Power on the Ampere Magnus Pro comes from an electric hub motor that uses a lead battery pack with a range of 100 km on a single charge in the Eco mode, and 80 km on a single charge in the Cruise mode. The scooter can sprint from 0-40 kmph in 10 seconds and has a top speed of 55 kmph. The electric offering comes with telescopic front forks and dual shock absorbers for improved handling and rideability, while there are drum brakes with regenerative braking. Ampere promises the best-in-class powertrain in the electric scooter commuter segment and claims that it is the lightest vehicle in its category with the highest power-to-weight ratio.
The Ampere Magnus Pro comes with ample legroom at the front that stands at 450 mm, which the company claims is more than that on the average petrol-powered scooter. The ground clearance stands at 150 mm, ensuring the scooter can take rough roads with ease. The feature list on the electric scooter is elaborate and includes a LED headlamp, digital instrument console, deep under-seat storage space with an LED light, keyless entry, anti-theft alarm, and Combined Braking System (CBS). The scooter also comes with a Limp home feature that offers an extra 10 km of charge when the battery is down to the last 10 per cent.
