Bajaj Chetak e-scooter to be sold in Europe from 2024

Stefan Pierer, CEO of KTM, has confirmed that the Bajaj Chetak will be introduced in the European market in 2024. He was addressing an event marking KTM’s 1 million unit production milestone in India.

Pierer believes that the second-generation electric Chetak would be a great commuter product for a market like Europe, and if all goes to plan, KTM will launch the electric scooter in Europe in the first quarter of next year.

The brand ‘Chetak’, which has become a household name in India, was resurrected in 2020 in the form of a new electric scooter. Its neo-retro look blends modern design and technology with classic proportions.

The Chetak e-scooter is powered by a 4.1 kW electric motor and a lithium-ion battery offering a maximum range of 95 km on a single charge. Bajaj claims that the battery can be re-charged in 5 hours.

Current form of Chetak is not export ready, if fact it is not India ready.
It needs a drastic change in all the aspects. Design is a generation below the competition, it looks bulky and old. Driving is no where close to Ather / OLA even sluggish than i-Cube.

I agree with this. While the competition offers much more utilitarian features and also wide options, Chetak has been on sale nearly 3 years in just single variant. Range is less and also lacks Public charging feasibility or even connected tech. Bajaj should update Chetak high time.

But look at the competition in EU, Vespa elettrica with a 4kw peak motor costs 6500 Euros and a top speed of 45km/hr.
