Hero Vida e-scooter to get swappable batteries

The Hero Vida is expected to be priced around Rs 1 lakh and will compete with the Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube.

Hero MotoCorp is gearing up to launch its first electric scooter in the Indian market on October 7. The company has now confirmed that the Vida e-scooter will get swappable batteries.

In a post shared on social media, Hero MotoCorp stated that the Vida uses a modular charging system with portable batteries. This setup enables users to quickly swap out discharged batteries, without having to spend hours to fully recharge them. To facilitate this, Hero has partnered with Gogoro to set up battery swapping stations across India.

The Hero Vida is expected to be priced around Rs 1 lakh and will compete with the Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube. The scooter could be aimed at the mass market, with a focus on durability and range instead of outright performance.
