The list of electric vehicles brands in the Indian market expanded with the arrival of Bengaluru-based manufacturer, Bounce. We recently tested the new Bounce Infinity E1 electric scooter for the first-ride review and you can read all about it here. In this article, we bring you the best images from the first-ride review of the new Bounce Infinity E1 electric scooter.
The styling cues on this new electric scooter may look familiar because it is based on the 22Kymco i-Flow. Regular readers would know that Bounce took over 22Kymco’s operations when the brand went defunct.
The design of the new Infinity E1 is similar to internal combustion engine powered scooters. This electric scooter features a round headlight at the front, apron-mounted turn indicators, a body-coloured front fender, a flat-ish seat, a single-piece pillion grab rail, and a sharp design for the body panels.
While the overall styling looks decent, the round shape of the headlight and the rear-view mirrors do not merge well with the relatively modern looks of the Infinity E1. The small size of the mirrors also compromises the rear view.
While the overall quality and fitment are decent, there are a few gaps on the lower side of the bodywork, and a slight lapse in paint finish around bolts.
That said, the switchgear operations feel adequately tactile while the LCD instrument cluster is easy to read. The fully-digital instrument cluster shows data about battery percentage, range, speed, odometer, and trips.
In terms of performance, the new Infinity E1 uses a BLDC motor that produces 1.5kW (2bhp) and 85Nm of torque. The Power mode delivers a top speed of 65kmph while the Eco mode is restricted to 41kmph. The electric scooter also boasts a Drag mode and a Reverse mode.
The 1.87kWh swappable battery pack is claimed to deliver a range of 85km per charge.
Do note that buyers can opt to purchase the scooter without the battery pack, which will bring down the purchase price. The battery pack can be rented for a monthly subscription of Rs 1,249.
The hardware on the Bounce Infinity E1 includes telescopic front forks, twin rear springs, and disc brakes on both wheels.
