Electric vehicles have stolen the show at this year’s edition of India’s flagship motor show Auto Expo 2023. Popular brands Maruti Suzuki and Kia Motors unveiled their concept electric vehicles while Hyundai launched its all-electric model Ioniq 5 and Tata Motors unveiled electric SUV Sierra. However, one of the most unique EVs to be showcased at this year’s Auto Expo were electric scooter Liger X and Liger X+ by Liger Mobility, which claims that they are the world’s first self-balancing e-scooters. Know all about them including price and specifications.
Liger X price
According to a report by HT Auto, Liger X will be available for around Rs. 90,000 (ex-showroom) after applying the FAME-II subsidy. For the unaware, FAME or Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric vehicles subsidy was conceived by the government for EV manufacturers to reduce the price gap between fuel-based vehicles and EVs. Earlier the subsidy was capped at 20% of the cost of the vehicle but now it has been revised as FAME-II and is capped at 40% of the cost of the vehicle.
It should be noted that the pre-booking for both the models will begin in mid-2023 and the company plans to start delivering the units by mid-2025.
Liger X specifications
Exact specifications of the electric scooters have not been disclosed but a lot is already known about them. Both Liger X and Liger X+ will have a top speed of 65 kmph, and while Liger X claims to offer 60 kilometers range on a full charge, Liger X+ will give riders a range of 100 kilometers. Both the models will get a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack which is built to suit Indian weather conditions.
While the battery capacity is not known, the company claims that Liger X will get a detachable battery pack which will take less than 3 hours to recharge. On the other hand, Liger X+ gets a non-detachable battery pack which will take about 4.5 hours to go from zero to hundred. For additional cost, buyers will also be able to get faster charging options.
Coming to smart features, both the electric scooters get features like reversing button, learner mode and over-the-air (OTA) software updates. Both the scooters will support 4G and GPS, while Liger X+ will feature turn-by-turn navigation.
