Auto Expo 2023: India’s First Self-balancing Electric Scooters Unveiled
The Liger X and the Liger X Plus are slated for a launch later this year
Mumbai-based Liger Mobility has unveiled its self-balancing electric scooters at the Auto Expo 2023. Christened Liger X and Liger X Plus, the e-scooters come with a bunch of unique features that are unheard of in our market:
Feet on footboard – FootFreeStop: Thanks to its self-balancing tech, riders do not need to put their feet down while riding through traffic or when coming to a halt.
ReverseRide: And this also means you don’t have to use your feet even when reversing the e-scooter.
LearnerMode: Since the Liger balances itself, it is a great vehicle to learn too. And in this mode, the top speed is limited to ensure safety.
The AutoBalance feature of the Liger electric scooter has been designed smartly too. At higher speeds, the features goes into standby mode, and activates at low speeds or when the e-scooter is stationary. Furthermore, the rider can manually activate or deactivate the system according to their needs even at low speeds.

Though Liger Mobility has not revealed the technical specifications of the e-scooters, both will have a claimed top speed of 65kmph and liquid-cooled battery packs. While the X variants will have a detachable battery with a claimed range of 60km and a charging time of three hours, the X Plus will feature a non-detachable unit with a claimed range of 100km and a charging time of 4.5hours. The company will offer fast-charging on both models as an optional extra.
The Liger X and the Liger X Plus come with 4G connectivity and are GPS-enabled, and come with a dedicated app that shows the basic data as well as features tow/theft detection, service reminders and even accident alerts. Liger’s top variant will also come with a TFT console that packs navigation and call/SMS alerts.
Liger Mobility’s design is also unique, with a blend of retro and modern elements. While the silhouette of the e-scooter is quite retro, the triangular headlight with the horizontal DRL and digital console adds modernity to the design.
The Liger X and the Liger X Plus will go on sale later this year, with the bookings slated to commence by mid-2023. While the company is yet to comment on the pricing of the products, we expect them to cost Rs 1.70 lakh (X) and Rs 1.90 lakh (X Plus) (both ex-showroom) respectively.
