- There’s a large top box with thermal insulation offered as standard as well.
Li-Ions Elektrik Solutions, a Gurugram-based electric scooter startup, has launched its first scooter, the Spock in India. From the looks of it, the scooter is ideal for delivery services as it features a large top box with thermal insulation and an apron-mounted carrier too.
Moreover, its claimed range of 50-130km is fit for the purpose as well. The range is achieved using two 20Ah lithium ion battery packs that are removable for easy charging. It takes four hours to charge from zero to 100 per cent. A healthy 200mm ground clearance, coupled with a telescopic front fork and twin rear shock absorbers at the rear should also ensure fuss-free commuting on bad roads. For optimum safety, the scooter also gets a disc brake up front and a drum at the rear. Spock’s chief rivals include the Okinawa i-Praise and the Ather 340.
We have reached out to Li-Ions for more details on the pricing, availability and other technical aspects of the scooter, and are awaiting a response.
