Bengaluru-based electric vehicle (EV) start-up Simple Energy has unveiled an upgraded motor for its flagship electric scooter, the Simple One. According to the company, the new motor boosts the performance of the scooter further by offering better efficiency and thermal management. The Simple One electric scooter will be delivered to customers from June 2022 onwards. According to the company, the upgraded motor has been manufactured in-house, and can produce 72 Nm of torque, and will allow the scooter to house a large 4.8 kWh battery pack, providing more than 200 km range on a single charge.
Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO, of Simple Energy, said, "When we began working on the Simple One more than two years ago, we knew it had to be the best in the industry. While we had already developed the most powerful motor last year, we found there was room for further improvement. This breakthrough is an upgrade on efficiency and performance for us as the motor is the key to a perfect EV. 50 iterations later, this has only added to making the scooter even better. We are certain that the end consumer will be thrilled to experience it."
According to Simple Energy, the motor has been developed in-house from the ground up, and has been patented and is an intellectual property of the company. The company says there will be additional upgrades for customers, which will be announced in the coming weeks. The electric scooter can be booked on the company website for Rs. 1,947, and deliveries will begin in June 2022.
The Simple One has claimed range of over 200 km in Eco mode, 0 to 40 kmph acceleration in under 2.85 seconds, top speed of 105 kmph, a large boot with capacity of 30 litres and a powerful 8.5 kW motor. The Simple One will be produced at phase 1 of the company's manufacturing unit located in Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The state-of-the-art manufacturing plant has an annual capacity of up to 1 million units, and the factory is currently getting ready for mass manufacturing and will be operational in the coming weeks. Simple Energy has also commissioned a second plant in Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu, which will be spread across 600 acres and have a capacity of 12.5 million units (1.25 crore units) annually, making it the largest two-wheeler production unit in the world.
