Bajaj Sunny Electric could be in the works; spied testing

The Sunny electric scooter could be based on the Yulu platform.

According to a media report, Bajaj could bring back the Sunny. But this time, instead of a 60cc engine, it will use an electric powertrain.

The latest spy images suggest that the Sunny Electric is already in its prototype stage. The test mule looks identical to the original, but look closer and you will notice a hub-mounted motor in the rear. The report states that it could be based on the Yulu platform.

The Sunny EV prototype has the same compact and simple bodywork with a round headlamp and a rectangular tail lamp unit. It is equipped with a trailing-arm front suspension, steel wheels and drum brakes. Note that the battery pack is located on the floorboard where the spare tyre used to sit.

Looking at the spy image, it seems the Sunny EV project is in an early stage of development. It has the potential to be an affordable and convenient city runabout. It would be interesting to see if Bajaj puts it into production.
