“Deliveries in Sonic Mode,” remarks Suhas Rajkumar
A Bangalore-based start-up called Simple Energy has launched a new electric scooter called the Simple Dot One, which is positioned below the Simple One in its lineup. The e-scooter has a starting price of Rs 1,39,999 lakh. The company began accepting pre-bookings from customers on January 27, and existing customers who had booked the Simple One were allowed to switch to the Simple Dot One from January 1, 2024. The latest update from the company reveals that deliveries will begin soon and will be conducted in a superfast manner.
Suhas Rajkumar, founder and CEO of Simple Energy, recently posted “My 2024 view!” on his X account. Deliveries in Sonic Mode.”
The Dot One and One models differ in battery features. While the One has both a fixed and removable battery, totaling 5 kWh, the Dot One only has a fixed pack, resulting in a slightly smaller 3.7 kWh battery. This choice not only reduces the weight of the Dot One by approximately 11 kg but also increases under-seat storage from 30 to 35 liters. However, it impacts the range significantly. The Dot One is certified for up to 151 kilometers, whereas the One can go up to 212 kilometers.
It is interesting to note that while the Dot One has undergone significant changes, it still closely resembles the One in most aspects. Both vehicles share the same design, all-LED lighting, a permanent magnet motor with a peak output of 8.5 kW and 72 Nm, a 0-40 kmph time of 2.77 seconds, a top speed of 105 kmph, four ride modes, 12-inch alloys, disc brakes at both ends and a 7.0-inch touchscreen dashboard.
Moreover, the Dot One boasts the same 0-80 percent charge time as the One, which is 3 hours and 47 minutes using a 750-watt charger. The battery warranty is capped at 3 years or 30,000 kilometres while the charger warranty is limited to 1 year or 10,000 kilometres.
