Bajaj Chetak Bookings Closed Again; New Batch Sold Out In 2 Days!
New Bajaj Chetak Bookings Closed in India: Bajaj Auto launched the all-new Chetak electric scooter in India back in January 2020 with a starting price tag of INR 1 lakh. At present, after getting a couple of price hikes, the scooter is now available with a starting price tag of INR 1.42 lakhs for the Urbane model while the top-spec premium model is available for INR 1.45 lakhs.
Talking about the recent update, Bajaj Auto recently reopened the bookings for the Chetak scooter on April 13 and according to the statement released by the brand, they have managed to sell the entire new batch in just 2 days and they closed the bookings on April 15, 2021. Currently, Chetak Electric is available in only two cities: Pune and Bengaluru.
Bajaj has not revealed the exact number of scooters that got booked in this batch. This is what the brand said in a media statement, “A large number of confirmed orders were placed by customers requiring the Company to cease acceptance of bookings within 48 hours. The Company will review the supply situation and announce the next round of booking opportunity.”
Mr Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director at Bajaj Auto Ltd., said, “We are absolutely delighted to see the fabulous response to the re-opening of bookings for the Chetak electric scooter in Pune and Bengaluru. Covid-led disruptions last year resulted in an unintended and long waiting period but despite that, we have seen very few cancellations of bookings.
We thank our customers in Pune and Bengaluru for their patience and now this overwhelming response. We are conscious that customers would like to receive early deliveries of Chetak and start enjoying it as soon as possible, hence we have had to take the difficult decision of closing the bookings in view of continuing supply chain uncertainties. However, it is our endeavour to resolve the supply chain issues at the earliest, re-open bookings as well as roll into more cities within the next quarter.”
