Avan Motors Limited, a Bengaluru-based setup (that’s where all the start-ups are from) has unveiled its new scooter at the ongoing expo. The Avan Trend-E electric scooter will be on sale shortly. It is an all-new scooter and has been developed ground-up by Avan Motors.
What’s new in the Avan Trend-E scooter?
The scooter has a simple design and at first glance it is hard to tell that this is an e-scooter. Not only this, the Avan Trend-E scooter gets a hydraulic front suspension and a monoshock at the rear. There is a disc brake in the front and a drum at the rear. As of now, there is no information if this has a combi-braking system or not. Alloys wheels are available too. Avan Motors says that the maximum payload that this scooter can take is 150kg.
As far as its most important hardware goes, the Trend-E gets a Li-ion battery pack. This allows the scooter to travel 60km on a full charge. Avan also provides for a secondary battery that nearly doubles the range. Charge time taken by each battery is around 2-4 hrs. These batteries are easily detachable too. The top speed, as claimed by Avan Motors, is 45kmph.
The company also offers two other electric scooters – the Xero and Xero+. Speaking about the new unveil, Pankaj Tiwari, business development head, Avan Motors, commented, “With the Trend E, the latest electric scooter in the Xero series, Avan Motors’ extensive R&D has led to the creation of a scooter that’s a powerful mix of technology and design to meet the needs of the modern rider.
