TVS Motors updates its iQube electric scooter for 2022

TVS Motor Company has updated its iQube electric scooter for 2022 in India. The iQube is the company’s first and only electric scooter offering in India (debuted in 2020) and it hasn’t made an appearance in Nepal, yet.

The new e-scooter comes with the same design but it offers improved performance, better range, and new features. The iQube has been launched in three variants: the iQube, iQube S, and iQube ST–at a starting price of INR 98.564. 


Design and features

The iQube’s design remains unchanged and is kept simple. The e-scooter comes with narrow, horizontal LED lights with indicators on the front and rear as well, and the seat is repositioned for better riding position. 

The standard iQube comes equipped with a 5-inch TFT instrument cluster (compatible with the scooter’s mobile application) that displays the battery level (has a low-level battery indicator), distance to empty, turn-by-turn navigation, incoming call alert, side-stand indication, and parking-assist indicator. The S model gets a 7-inch TFT cluster with HMI interaction and the ST comes with additional touchscreen features. 

Among other notable features are bluetooth connectivity, GSM connectivity, geo-fencing, anti-theft alert, P67-rated battery, Battery Management System (BMS), thermal management system, regenerative braking, and reverse parking assist.
