It’s happening even as we speak. The EV market is gradually and evidently expanding its footprint in India. Apart from new brands, even mainstream bike and scooter manufacturers have hopped on the trend and are already setting the blueprint for their EV portfolio for the years to come. But from a buyer's perspective, one of the most or probably the most important aspects of an electric vehicle is the range it offers. We’ve done a fair bit of research and here are the top five electric two-wheelers in India that offer the most range on paper.
While a lot of electric two-wheelers are designed with a tad conservative approach, the Komaki Ranger seems to be the opposite. It gets a proper cruiser stance with a quirky bodywork. Though electric, Komaki has slapped on faux exhaust pipes too, more or less to mimic the petrol-powered ones.
The Komaki Ranger is priced at Rs 1,74,500 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) and is equipped with a 3.6kWh battery which claims to be sufficient for 200km. Moreover, the Ranger also gets features like LED illumination, Bluetooth compatibility, phone charging, reverse gear and even cruise control.
Possibly one of the most talked-about EVs right now, the Ola S1 Pro has also made it to the list. It’s priced at Rs 1,29,999 (ex-showroom Bengaluru) and can be booked on Ola Electric’s official website only. With that being said, the booking portal’s accessible only once in a month or two, so the waiting period is quite long.
The Ola S1 Pro is powered by a 3.97kWh battery pack which is claimed to offer 181km (ARAI) of range. Feature-wise, the Ola S1 Pro too is loaded like its foes. You get LED illumination proximity lock/unlock, remote boot lock, call alert, message alert, infotainment, side-stand alert, anti-theft alert, geo-fencing, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more.
Hero Electric NYX HX (Dual Battery)
The Hero Electric NYX HX has been on sale for a while now and it retails at Rs 67,540 (ex-showroom Delhi). Its design is very family-friendly and seems like the NYX HX has quite some storage space too.
Hero has equipped the NYX HX with a 1.5kWh dual battery pack and claims it to have enough charge for 165km. Its features list is pretty basic but functional. You get LED lights, regen braking, a phone charging slot, and a foldable rear seat.
Okinawa iPraise +
Last but not least, the Okinawa iPraise Plus has also made it to the list. It gets quite a sporty bodywork and has youthful appeal to it. The asking price is set to Rs 1.5lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and the iPraise+ packs about 160km of range.
The electronic suite consists of LED head and tail light, gas charged suspension, fully digital LCD console and smartphone connectivity as well. You can buy the Okinawa iPraise+ from the company’s official website.
Next up, in the mix of electric scooters, the Revolt RV400 e-motorcycle makes for a good variation. It’s priced at Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and is the only offering in the bikemaker’s current portfolio. Revolt has powered the RV400 by a swappable 3.24kWh lithium-ion battery that offers 156km of claimed range.
On the feature front, you get a full-LCD instrument cluster and 4G connectivity. Moreover, it’s also equipped with Bluetooth connectivity to pair your smartphone and get access to details like travel history, battery health, range, and nearest swap station.
