The bookings for Electric Bajaj Chetak have now commenced through Bajaj pro-biking dealerships but only for Bengaluru, as of now.
After touring for over 3000 kms, the group of Bajaj Chetak electric scooters have finally reached Pune, at their plant. Now, Bajaj has confirmed that its bookings have commenced for an expected amount of Rs 5,000.
Bajaj has only unveiled the scooter, revealing its features and styling. While the scooter uses a 4kW electric motor, the battery specifications have not been revealed yet. Everything will be revealed in January 2020 while the scooter is launched.
The manufacturer has also confirmed that the electric Bajaj Chetak will be priced between Rs 1 Lakh to Rs 1.2 Lakhs. The official prices will be revealed next year, but Bajaj has confirmed that it will be priced very attractively and competitively. Also, we are not sure if these prices are ex-showroom on-road prices.
Bajaj has also confirmed that it will be positioned as a premium scooter rivalling the likes of Ather 450 and Okinawa i-Praise electric scooters. If these will be the price of the electric Bajaj Chetak, it is bound to catch some eyes.
Highlights include alloy wheels, LED headlamps, LED DRLs, keyless start, a fully digital instrument console with Bluetooth connection, CBS, front disc brakes, front apron pocket and reverse mode. It will get two riding modes and the real-world riding range on Eco Mode will be 95 kms and the Sport mode will offer 85 kms.
About the availability, the new Chetak will first be launched in Pune, following that in Bangalore. Both the cities are technologically advanced when it comes to electric mobility, as these two have many charging stations as well as many other electric two-wheelers. There is no official confirmation on when Bajaj will launch the Chetak in other cities.
The styling of the Chetak is quite similar to the original model, especially with all the sculpted side fenders and rear portion. Although, you can also find some similarity with the Vespa Electrica, which is available globally.
