Sub-Rs 1 lakh Simple Dot One e-scooter launch on December 15

The Simple Dot One could miss out on the removable battery and is likely to get a less powerful motor.

Bangalore-based EV startup, Simple Energy, is set to launch a new electric scooter on December 15. The new model is called the Dot One and is said to be the company’s first sub-Rs 1 lakh e-scooter.

The Simple Dot One will be based on the Simple One. It is said that the cheaper version will not have a removable battery pack, but will be offered with the same touchscreen instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity as the One.

While the company hasn’t shared any technical details of the Dot One, it could use a slightly less powerful motor. Currently, the One is powered by an 8.5 kW motor and a 3.7 kWh battery. The company also mentions that the Dot One will offer “over 30 litres” of storage.

If the Simple Dot One is priced under Rs 1 lakh, it would compete with the Ola S1X.
