Hero Vida has launched its first electric scooter, the Vida V1, in two variants – Plus and Pro. Dr. Pawan Munjal, Chairman and CEO, Hero MotoCorp said, "It is clear to start with a scooter as you can see in the entire ecosystem outside. Practically everyone has gone with scooters and very few have gone with motorcycles. Having said that, we have already announced in motorcycles. We clearly are going to go into motorcycles."
The Hero Vida V1 Plus gets a 3.44kWh removable battery pack, which claims an Indian Driving Cycle (IDC) range of 143km. The V1 Pro gets a slightly bigger 3.94kWh removable battery pack and has an impressive IDC range of 165km. It features a telescopic fork and monoshock suspension setup with a disc brake up front and a drum at the rear for braking.
V1 can go up to 165 km/charge after a full charge.
The Vida V1 flaunts a long list of features including a fully digital TFT touchscreen instrument console, customisable ride modes along with Eco, Ride and Sport modes, two-way throttle, cruise control, turn-by-turn navigation, parking assist, emergency alert and key fob for keyless access. Apart from that it also features trip analytics, scooter diagnostics and document storage.
