Bajaj Chetak Beats TVS iQube (Sales Report): The electric vehicle segment has not taken strong roots in the Indian markets as of yet though the customers have indeed started inclining towards the greener technology for the sake of the environment. Ruled by Ather Energy for so long, the Bajaj Chetak Electric has finally climbed to the top of the sales chart of March 2020, leaving behind the TVS iQube with a considerable margin.

The electric two-wheelers are doing far better than the electric four-wheeler segment which is currently owned by big brands like Mahindra, MG Motors, Hyundai as well as Tata Motors. The e-scooter segment is currently the best market to invest in considering the sales factor as well as the customer’s interest.

The latest sales report for electric scooters includes TVS iQube which has been sorted on the second position after the Bajaj Chetak. The former has been able to register a total sales of 18 units in March 2020 while the sales number registered by Bajaj Chetak is far higher at 91 units. The total sales in the FY2020 for the TVS iQube only stands at 62 units while the Bajaj Chetak has done quite well by witnessing FY2020 sales of 212 units.

The Bajaj Chetak Electric was launched in the market at a starting price tag of INR 1 lakh (ex-showroom). The scooter is available to the customers in two trims namely Urbane and Premium, each featuring few distinguished quirks, though the overall profile remains the same.

On the other hand, the TVS iQube is powered by 4.4kW electric motor mated to a 4.5kWh lithium-ion battery which makes the scooter good for 5.9 HP of maximum power and 140 Nm of motor-induced torque. The iQube was launched in India at a price tag of INR 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom).

Going by the design traits, both the smart electric scooters look the same and there is no space for a pillion rider. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a set of conventional twin shocks at the rear.

The brand has made the A1 and A1 Pro feature-loaded as they are equipped with a full-colour instrument cluster with GPS navigation in addition to getting a 1080p wide-angle camera allowing the users to record their rides. The footage will be stored on the A1 Pro’s onboard internal storage but for the standard model A1, one will need an external memory stick to store the video clips.

Both the smart electric scooters have been designed to be used as a daily commuter vehicle and will go up to 25 kmph. The top speed of the A1 and A1 Pro complies with China’s laws regarding electric mopeds. As per the official video released by Xiaomi, the A1 Pro features a wide touchscreen infotainment panel.

Coming to the electric range, the A1 has a claimed range of 60km whereas the A1 Pro can travel up to 70km because of its 9.6kWh battery pack which is larger than A1’s 7.68kWh unit. The battery is removable so that one can carry it up to a charging socket inside the office or home.

The A1 and A1 Pro smart electric scooters are on sale in China only, and as of now, the company has not mentioned its plans on introducing them in the Indian market. Well, Xiaomi could launch the scooters in our country as they have a good brand name in India and they have gained a lot of popularity through their budget-friendly and feature-loaded smartphones.

Chandigarh Administration to Register only Electric Vehicles after 2030: Due to a push towards the usage of EVs initiated by the central government, India has become a global hotspot for electric mobility as it has become one of the largest EV markets in the world.

Following the initiative, the Chandigarh Administration has drafted an electric vehicle policy as the city has the highest density of vehicles in India and thus, the high emission levels impact the air quality of the Union Territory. In the draft policy, the administration has included goals and incentives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).

The Ministry of Urban Development is working upon to make Chandigarh a smart city and the Electric Vehicle policy is a part of the process. A tender has been recently passed by the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) for the use of electric buses in the city.

Chandigarh Administration to Register only Electric Vehicles after 2030

Some details about the draft include that after 2030, only electric vehicles will be registered in the city, and it will have an all-electric fleet of buses and government vehicles by 2027 and 2025 respectively. By 2030, the city will have all-electric rickshaws, corporate fleets, cabs and school buses/vans. The Chandigarh Administration is also planning to install 1,000 public EV chargers by 2030. The incentives and assistance that have been included in the policy for EV charging are:

  • The JERC or Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission has fixed the charge of INR 4 for one unit whereas a fixed monthly charge of INR 100 will be taken on electric bill at the EV charging station.
  • A subsidy of 30% has been proposed for the installation of home chargers and a subsidy of 15% will be given for charging infrastructure companies.

For the implementation of the EV Policy in Chandigarh, the UTI Transport Department will form an EV Steering committee whose responsibility will be to suggest the measures to implement the policy perfectly. The committee will be the nodal department to check the implementation of the policy.

In order to support the rise of electrification of India, the government is taking initiatives in setting up infrastructure for it. As a part of the action, the government of India in order to help further in setting up the charging stations has announced revised guidelines that will help in addressing the concerns of an Electric Vehicle (EV) owner. The announcement was issued by the Union Minister of State for Power and New and Renewable Energy (IC) and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, RK Singh.

The ministry has notified that the new implemented guidelines and specifications may replace the previously existing guidelines and standards that were issued by the Ministry of Power on December 14, 2018. Union Minister of State for Power and New and Renewable Energy (IC) and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, RK Singh assured in his statement that the revised guidelines are more consumer-friendly as compared to the previous ones as they incorporate a number of suggestions received from various stakeholders. “We have tried to address the concerns of EV owners in new guidelines.”

According to government goals, it aims to have at least one charging station to be available in every 3 sq km grid in cities in addition to a charging station every 25km on both sides of intra-city highways. The government’s first target is the major cities and also the expressways that are connected to these cities whereas all the other cities have been included in the second phase of the initiative. In the case of intercity travels, the government is planning to install a charging station every 100 km.

All these plans will be implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) as a Central nodal agency to help in the installation of charging infrastructure. The decision to use fast or a slow charging point will rest with the consumer and it will also permit private charging at home and offices, which will be facilitated by the distribution companies. It is interesting to note that the Public Charging Stations (PCS) will be a de-licensed activity and anybody will be free to set up a free charging station under the conditions specified in the guidelines.

A Family Settlement Agreement that happened in the Munjal family has landed Hero MotoCorp into a situation where it has been restricted from selling its electric scooters and bikes under one of the most trusted brand names – Hero. Formerly known as Hero Honda, it is the largest two-wheeler manufacturer, therefore, has an empire worth multi-billion dollars comprising of various business verticals. These verticals have now been divided between the family members that come under a family pact that was finalised in 2010.

As a result of the split, the company may have to drop the Hero brand name and come up with a new brand name for its electric two-wheelers that will shortly arrive in the market. This Family Settlement restricts Pawan Munjal, who is the chairman and promoter of Hero MotoCorp from using the brand name as the rights of it rest with Naveen Munjal who is the promoter and managing director of Hero Electric Vehicles Pvt. Ltd.

Not just Pawan Munjal, even other members of the Munjal family have been restricted from using the Hero brand name. Hero MotoCorp is in the process of manufacturing electric scooters but has not yet disclosed anything about the launch.

The company is looking forward to bringing new products that will be engineered according to the new technology but not under the brand name Hero. As per the recent reports, the company will not change its dealership to sell their electric products, even if it has to change its brand name.

Due to new and stricter rules, Hero Electric has experienced a dip in sales. These new laws ensure that the prices of eco-friendly vehicles should be low as these avail subsidiaries under the FAME Scheme. Although using a new brand name may prove to be an obstacle for the company, Hero MotoCorp feels that it is also a great opportunity for the launch of its electric two-wheelers as it will help in growing its customer base.
