TVS Motors, a leading player in the Indian two-wheeler market, has pulled the covers off its latest innovation – the TVS X, an electric scooter that promises to redefine the electric mobility landscape. Priced at INR 2.50 lakh (ex-showroom), the TVS X boasts a series of groundbreaking features and a distinctive design, setting new standards for electric scooters in the country.
Design and Features: A Blend of Innovation and Comfort
The TVS X stands out as a maxi scooter, breaking away from conventional scooter designs. It features a seat height of 770 mm, eschewing the floorboard commonly found in traditional scooters. Instead, the scooter’s frame occupies this space, providing a unique structural layout. The scooter comes with a solid seat design and offers a generous 19-litres of under-seat storage, addressing practicality concerns of daily commuters.
In terms of technology, the TVS X is equipped with a sizable 10.25-inch adjustable display. Notably, it comes with Bluetooth connectivity, enabling features like music playback and turn-by-turn navigation. The scooter incorporates the PlayTech system, allowing riders to use the display for entertainment purposes such as gaming or video watching when stationary. Rider-focused features like reverse assist, cruise control, and hill hold add to the scooter’s allure.
Performance and Powertrain: A Remarkable Electric Experience
Under the hood, the TVS X runs on the company’s advanced XLETON platform. It features a robust ram-air cooled Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), delivering a rated power of 7 kW and a peak power of 11 kW. The scooter houses a substantial 4.44 kWh battery, granting an impressive range of 140 km on a single charge (IDC) and a top speed of 105 km/h. Acceleration is equally impressive, with the TVS X reaching 0-40 km/h in just 2.6 seconds.
Additionally, the TVS X offers riders the flexibility of choosing between three riding modes – Xtealth, Xtride, and Xonic, catering to various preferences and driving conditions.
Charging Options and Launch Details
Buyers of the TVS X will have the option of two chargers – a portable 950 W charger and a fixed 3 kW charger. The fast charger can replenish 50 percent of the battery in just 50 minutes, while a 0-80 percent charge will take 4.5 hours with the portable charger.
Excitingly, bookings for the TVS X have commenced, with deliveries set to begin in Bangalore by November 2023.
