BGauss B8 And A2 Electric Scooters Launched In India
Online bookings have commenced while deliveries will begin from August
- BGauss offers two electric scooters in India: B8 and A2.
- B8 is available in three variants whereas A2 comes in two versions.
- Prices start from Rs 52,499 for the BGauss A2 (ex-showroom Bengaluru).
After unveiling its range of electric scooters earlier this month, Mumbai-based EV brand BGauss has launched its B8 and A2 electric scooters in India. The prices of the variants are as follows:
Bookings have also commenced online for a token amount of Rs 3,000 for all the electric scooter models. Deliveries will begin from August in Pune, Navi Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Depending on the variant, some of the salient features of the two scooters include a removable battery pack, three riding modes (low, mid and high), fully digital instrument cluster with keyless entry, anti-theft alarm, USB charging and reverse assist. Details of the more premium BGauss B8’s features and its variants are covered here.
The lead-acid battery variant of the BGauss A2 is the most affordable scooter from the brand in India. It gets a claimed range of 110km, which is about 32-40km more than the B8 range. Since its top speed is limited to just 25kmph, you don’t need a licence to ride this electric scooter. The battery takes 7-8 hours to charge completely, whereas the lithium-ion variant takes around 2 hours and 15 minutes for a full charge. The lithium-ion battery variant offers the same range as the lead-acid version, at 110km. However, the lithium-ion battery pack is removable for added convenience.
All the electric scooters get similar spec underpinnings in the form of a telescopic front fork, dual rear shock absorbers, and disc brakes on both ends. The B8 gets CBS as standard whereas the A2 misses out on it. That’s reasonable considering the top speed of the BGauss A2 is quite low anyway. The electric scooters go up against the likes of the Gemopai Astrid Lite, Okinawa iPraise, Hero Electric Optima, and the recently launched Ampere Magnus Pro.
