The Praise was always a feature-rich product, but the i-Praise has additions to it that make it even better. The biggest one is the detachable battery, which is a Lithium-ion unit that can be taken to the owner’s house to be charged. It has a charge time of 2-3 hours. Another benefit of the Li-ion battery is the fact that the scooter has managed to cut down its weight by 4 per cent over the previous lead-acid version. The new Li-ion battery will offer a range of 160-180km on a full charge. Motive power is via a 1000 Watt BLDC electric motor. Only 500 units of the i-Praise will be manufactured in the first batch, to be launched this month. Deliveries will begin after.
