The Bajaj Chetak electric scooter needs minimal maintenance with a service interval of 12,000 kilometres or one year (whichever is earlier) and comes with an overall warranty of 3 years or 50,000 kilometres (whichever is earlier) inclusive of the Lithium-Ion battery.
The Chetak gets a retro look with simple lines and smooth surfaces that are woven together softly to create a classic style. The new Chetak gets exquisite detailing, the use of premium materials & finishes, and a choice of 4 eye-catching colours in Premium variant and a choice of 2 vibrant colours in Urbane variant.
The new Bajaj electric scooter features a horseshoe-shaped LED headlight with DRLs, feather touch-activated electronic switches and sequential scrolling rear LED blinkers. It gets a large digital console which intuitively displays vehicle information with crisp clarity. Moreover, fine craftsmanship is visible in the smallest of details – from handlebar grips, levers and mirrors, to the softly opening of the glove box and the damped seat closure mechanism.
At the heart of the new Chetak is an IP67 rated high-tech Lithium-Ion battery with NCA cells. The battery is easily charged using a standard household 5 amp electrical outlet. The on-board Intelligent Battery Management System (IBMS) controls charge and discharge seamlessly.
The 3 kWh battery provides for power-peak of 4.08 KW and 3.8 KW continuous for an effortless ride. The Chetak offers 2 drive modes (Eco, Sport) and a reverse assist mode to ensure that all the demands of a rider are satisfied. Regenerative braking via an intelligent braking system helps maximise its range to 95 km+.
The Chetak offers a fully-connected riding experience by virtue of being embedded with mobility solutions like data communication, security and user authentication that will enable customers to have a seamless ownership and riding experience. The Chetak mobile app gives the rider a comprehensive overview of all aspects of his / her vehicle and its ride history.
The scooter is built on a rigid frame clad with sheet metal body panels and a tubular single-sided suspension. The powertrain similarly employs a unique single-sided cast aluminium swingarm which houses the traction motor that drives the wheel through a high-efficiency automated gearbox.
The new Chetak will be made at a state-of-the-art dust-free, temperature-controlled facility at Chakan, Pune to exacting standards using the best materials and cutting edge robotic technology. Soon, the new Chetak electric scooter will also be presented to customers in several overseas markets.
