TVS XL EV / E-XL could arrive soon to rival electric Luna

Written by News Team

TVS Motor Company is reportedly working on an electric version of its popular XL 100 moped. The company has filed trademark applications for two names, TVS XL EV and E-XL, hinting at the imminent arrival of an electric variant.

TVS XL 100

The TVS XL 100 moped, one of TVS’ longest-running models, is currently the only petrol-powered moped available for purchase in India. Its price ranges between Rs 44,999 – Rs 59,695 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The trademark filings suggest that TVS is exploring the possibility of a battery-powered XL model too which could go against the recently launched e-Luna from Kinetic Green.

TVS Electric

TVS has been successful with its iQube range and appears to be expanding its electric two-wheeler portfolio. The company filed these patents in January of this year. However, it is still early days for the E-XL / XL EV project, and there are no official details or company confirmation regarding the same.

The electric moped market in India currently has only one player – the Kinetic e-Luna. Launched in February 2024, the E Luna is priced between Rs 64,990 – Rs 74,990 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It boasts a range of 110km on a single full charge and is aimed at the commercial market.

There are other products in the segment that service the last-mile delivery industry. However, these brands are not established players and do not have a history of making automobiles. The entry of a trusted brand like TVS will surely be beneficial for the consumers.

While the exact specifications and features of the TVS XL EV / E-XL are yet to be revealed, the electric moped market in India is set for an exciting phase with the entry of a new player.
