EeVe Tesoro Electric Bike, Forseti Retro Electric Scooter Unveiled At Auto Expo 2020
The Tesoro is the Orissa-based brand’s first electric bike
- The Tesoro electric monkey bike looks as big as the Honda Navi.
- It is scheduled to be launched by October this year.
- On the other hand, the Forseti electric scooter is likely to be launched in mid-2020.
EeVe is an Orissa-based electric two-wheeler startup. It currently offers four electric scooters: Xeniaa, 4U, Wind and Your. Now, the company has added two more EVs to its portfolio at Auto Expo 2020 - the Tesoro electric bike and the Forseti electric scooter. The former is the brand’s first electric motorcycle, which is scheduled to be launched in October this year. It is likely to cost around Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom). On the other hand, the Forseti e-scooter is planned to be launched in mid-2020, and is also likely to command a price tag of Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Tesoro’s small dimensions make it look like a typical monkey bike a la the Honda Grom. The company claims it can reach a top speed of 90-100kmph and offer a range of 120km on a full charge. The electric hub motor is from Bosch and the bike gets a dual battery setup. One of the battery is fixed while the other one is removable. EeVe claims that using an optional fast charger, the battery pack can be charged completely in 30 minutes. It sounds pretty optimistic, if you ask us. Using a conventional charger, it takes 3-4 hours to juice up completely.
Other notable aspects of the e-bike include an all-LED lighting system, LCD instrument console, inverted front fork, rear monoshock and disc brake on both ends.
The Forseti retro electric scooter also gets a hub motor from Bosch, which helps it reach a claimed top speed of around 60-70kmph. At 100km per charge, the claimed range seems to be pretty decent for a modern electric scooter. Like the Tesoro, the electric scooter also gets an all-LED lighting system, LCD instrument cluster and disc brakes on both ends.
The brand will offer a 3-year warranty on the battery pack and a 5-year warranty on the upcoming products. It will throw in complimentary insurance for the first year. There are 45 dealerships at present, concentrated on the eastern parts of India, and the brand has plans to expand to more cities soon. Once launched, the Tesoro will compete against the Revolt RV 400, which is currently the only electric bike in India. On the other hand, the Forseti will primarily rival the Bajaj Chetak’s Urbane variant.
