As we know, Bajaj Auto is launching its first electric scooter in India on 16th October. It will be launched under the Urbanite brand, which will be the sub-brand for all the electric two-wheelers from Bajaj.
Now Rushlane reports that the new electric scooter will be named as Bajaj Chetak chic. The iconic scooter, which became a family member of many Indian households is set to make a comeback.
Bajaj Chetak was one of the popular two-wheelers back in the 80s and 90s. Going by the name “Chetak Chic”, we expect it to be styled like a retro-scooter, just like the Vespa scooters.
As of now, there are no details on the engine specifications, battery capacity and more. However, it will be a mass-market electric two-wheeler and will go up against the Ather 450 and Okinawa i-Praise. That’s why, our price expectation for it stands around a Lakh.
A couple of times, it has been spied testing under heavy camouflage. It gets alloy wheels, a retro-styled headlamp, telescopic suspension at the front and a disc brake as well. Further details will come up nearing the launch.
Despite having a retro-styling, it will be packed with many upmarket features like LED headlamps, LED tail lights, Bluetooth-integrated speedometer, USB charging port and much more. We expect a BLDC motor and a lithium-ion battery pack to come onboard.
Not only this, but the Bajaj Chetak might also be offered with an internal combustion engine. A couple of times, it has also been spied with exhaust mufflers and silencers. With new scooters, it will mark Bajaj’s re-entry in the scooter segment, after nearly 7-8 years.
