The Indie is priced at Rs 1.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Hyderabad). The prices for the electric scooter were revised in January of this year, witnessing a bump of Rs 13,000 from its launch price. It was launched in India in 2023 and was initially only offered in Bengaluru. Now, the company states that it plans to expand its footprint in major cities by year-end. 


Aravind Mani, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, “After the success of our flagship store in Bengaluru, we’re excited to launch in Hyderabad. The demand for electric scooters is high in Telangana, and the initial pre-orders from Hyderabad are a testament to that. Our goal is to establish the River Indie as a distinctive vehicle in the region, offering both style and convenience. Looking ahead, we plan to expand to over 100 cities in the next two years, prioritising an exceptional customer experience.”
