Highlights

  • Simple Energy and Bounce are co-developing an electric scooter
  • Bounce fleet is also being electrified
  • Simple Energy has its own scooter which is called the Mark 2

Bangalore based start-up Bounce which rose to prominence in 2018 because of its last-mile mobility solution is collaborating with Simple Energy to develop a long-range electric vehicle for India. The two are looking at converting the former's internal combustion engine fleet into electric vehicles as per a report by the Financial Express

An all-electric fleet for Bounce especially one with motorcycles will be a huge boost for Bounce. It will also mean that it directly competes with players like eBikeGo. This may not be an easy task for Simple Energy which makes ICE to electric conversion kits. Bounce has motorbikes like the Yamaha FZ, Bajaj Pulsar and even some superbikes which will make this task difficult as many of these bikes are performance-oriented and it will need to ensure the performance of these bikes is retained in the conversion.
