2023 Bajaj Chetak Premium Edition Launched At A Price Of Rs 1.51 Lakh
The 2023 Chetak Electric scooter from Bajaj Auto has been introduced in India with a starting price of Rs 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom). The new EV has a number of features and designs upgrades over the two-wheeler. In addition, the new electric scooter will be marketed alongside the existing model, which is currently available for Rs. 1.22 lakh (ex-showroom). It should be highlighted that changes like a larger variety warrant a price difference of Rs 30,000. The improvements were only made to the priciest Premium model, and it now has additional surprises in store. These modifications have resulted in the addition of three additional colors to the color palette. The company is also aiming to lengthen the supply chain for EVs.
The Chetak EV is now on sale in more than 60 Indian cities. By the end of March 2023, Bajaj Auto wants to have 85 cities and roughly 100 outlets where customers may purchase the e-scooter. Of these shops, more than 40 are upmarket experience centers.
The 2023 Bajaj Chetak Premium Edition is available in three new colors: Satin Black, Matte Caribbean Blue, and Matte Coarse Grey. A brand-new full-color LCD display is also included with the redesigned Bajaj Chetak Electric scooter. Other product highlights include a two-tone seat, body-colored rearview mirrors, a matte black grab rail, and matching pillion footrest castings. The components of the center trim, blinkers, and headlight housing are now Charcoal Black.
The battery and motor have not been changed, only some aesthetic alterations. A 3.8kW motor and a 3kWh battery pack power it. The highest range and speed available with this arrangement are 108 km and 60 km/h, respectively. According to the manufacturer, the electric scooter has a real range of 90 kilometres on a single charge. All of this results in 4.2 kW of power and 20 Nm of maximum torque. In addition, a regular charger requires four hours to completely charge the battery. The scooter still has 12-inch alloy wheels that are supported by a single spring in front and a single spring in the back. Braking is done in the meanwhile with a disc-drum system and CBS.
The 2023 Bajaj Chetak Premium Edition, which costs Rs 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom), competes with vehicles like the TVS iQube and the Ola S1 Pro. The Bajaj Chetak is anticipated to have sold a total of 38,771 units since debuting until the end of January 2023. In contrast, 77,664 fewer TVS iQube e-scooters, which were also released in January 2020, were sold. Sales have been impacted in part by Bajaj Chetak’s inferior 90-kilometer range per charge and comparably small network to its competitors. In an effort to address this, Bajaj Auto issued a circular last month announcing that Chetak’s claimed Indian Driving Conditions (IDC) range will rise by 20% to 108km.
