Before Bajaj Auto became popular for its modern range of motorcycles, it was principally known for its two-wheeler scooter, namely the Bajaj Chetak. Over the past few years, the Pune-based two-wheeler giant had completely stopped manufacturing scooters and since then it has been working on a new electric scooter offering and has now finally launched the Chetak, in an electric avatar.
As the name suggests, the scooter harks back to its roots by taking design cues from the iconic Chetak and giving it a contemporary and fresh look. It uses sheet metal body panels that offer a premium touch, while the smooth flowing lines, LED lighting and turn signals with sequential blinking similar to high-end cars add to its modernity. Furthermore, it packs fully-digital Bluetooth-enabled instrumentation that comes with a host of features.
As far as the powertrain is concerned, the Bajaj Chetak is equipped with an electric motor that draws its power from a 3kWh IP67 rated lithium-ion battery. The power rating of its motor is 4kW (peak) and 3.8kW (continuous) with 16Nm of peak torque. The powertrain comes with two drive modes — Sport and Eco, which are capable of returning a range of 95km and 85km, respectively. Bajaj claims that the battery will last for about 70,000km before a replacement is needed. Besides that, Bajaj has equipped the e-scooter with several innovative features like a reverse assist mode, regenerative braking and an onboard Intelligent Battery Management System (IBMS) to control charge and discharge seamlessly.
Bajaj is offering the Chetak electric scooter in two variants, Urbane and Premium. Meanwhile, the colour palette that is available on the Chetak comprises of six options — white, pink, black, yellow, red and blue. Competition-wise, the e-scooter rivals the likes of the Ather 450 and the Okinawa i-Praise in the premium electric scooter market space.
