Ampere Vehicles Launched India’s first pluggable battery based electric scooter
Ampere Vehicles launched two e-scooters – the Ampere V48 and Reo Li-Ion, priced at Rs 38,000 and Rs 46,000 (ex-showroom, India), respectively – along with a lithium-ion battery pack charger on May 11 in New Delhi. There’s not any extra registration fee related to the electrical two-wheelers since they offer you a maximum rate restricted of 25kph.
Since the launching of its cheap charger for rechargeable battery chargers in May this past year, the business was focusing on indigenously developing electric motors, battery packs, in addition to chargers for lithium-ion battery powered scooters.

The innovative lithium-ion charger, priced at Rs 3,000, was created using a charging profile. Its charging voltage and current degree could be altered depending on the battery manufacturer’s specifications. The microcontroller-based monitoring and control systems supply lively battery reverse-polarity protection, over-temperature cut-off, and output signal protection.
Its battery capacity score is 48V, 20Ah or even 24Ah using a charging period of 4-5 hours. The charger can be permitted with output and input overvoltage protection.
The scooters have been set to go available from the organization’s 150 dealers within 14 countries throughout the nation, with a significant focus being on Tier-2, -3 and -4 cities.
The business has sold near 35,000 scooters because it rolled out its first product in 2008. Both new versions might also be credited as being the very first homegrown lithium-ion scooters using their key elements — the electrical motor, battery control in addition to the charger — all being indigenously developed in the startup’s R&D labs in Coimbatore. Ampere Vehicles, nevertheless, is sourcing the battery packs those offerings from Taiwan and China.
