The Optima HX and Nyx HX e-scooters are now cheaper by upto Rs 17,000!

The recent revisions in the FAME-II subsidy have come as a boon to electric two-wheeler manufacturers and consumers. After Ather Energy, TVS, Ampere, Revolt Motors and Okinawa, Hero Electric has revised the pricing of its e-scooters. Here’s what the current pricing looks like:



New Price

Old Price 

Price Difference

Nyx HX (Dual Battery)

Rs 62,954

Rs 79,990

Rs 17,036

Optima HX (Single Battery)

Rs 53,600

Rs 61,640

Rs 8,040

Optima HX (Dual Battery)

Rs 58,980

Rs 74,660

Rs 15,680

The Hero Electric Nyx, the brand’s commercial e-scooter, has benefitted the most from the FAME-II revisions, dropping the price by a massive Rs 17,036. With a claimed range of 165km and a top speed of 42kmph, the Nyx becomes a viable alternative to the petrol-sipping alternatives for delivery-oriented businesses. The other high-speed offerings from the manufacturer, Optima HX, in single battery as well as dual battery variants too have received a significant drop in prices.

However, Hero Electric’s portfolio consists of as many as six low-speed electric scooters which do not benefit from the new regulations. With the price revisions, the low-speed scooters like Optima LX, Flash LX, and Nyx LX have now come eerily close to the premium offerings.

The FAME-II benefits have certainly given the EV industry a much-needed boost. And besides, the recently announced policy on electric vehicles by the Gujarat government could make the overall experience that much sweeter.
