TVS iQube Electric Scooter Launch in India Today Highlights: TVS Motor Company has launched three new variants of their iQube electric scooter. The iQube was initially launched in 2020 and owning to the growing competition in the electric scooter space, was in need of a major update. With the 2022 update, TVS has given customers the choice of three variants and 10 colour options to choose from. Prices for the 2022 TVS iQube start at Rs 98,564 (on-road, Delhi).

2022 TVS iQube variants

The three new models include – iQube, iQube S and iQube ST. There are no major changes in terms of design and the scooter still has the same rounded panels and an LED light setup. However, while the iQube was only available in a single white colour all this while, now there are a number of colour options to choose from. The S and ST models also get a slightly larger windscreen at the front.

TVS has massively improved the range of the iQube with the update and also increased the top speed. The previous model had a top speed of 78kmph while the claimed range was 75km per charge. Now, the base and S model of the iQube come with a ‘real-world range of 100km and have the same top speed of 78kmph. The top-of-the-line ST model gets a range of 140km and can go up to a speed of 82kmph. The batteries are also IP67 certified, just like before and get AIS 156 certification, making them safer to use.

2022 TVS iQube 7-inch touchscreen display

The standard and S models of the iQube get a 5-inch colour TFT display while the ST gets a 7-inch touchscreen display. This display offers the customers a choice to customise it to their liking or use the built in themes. Apart from showing the usual stats of the scooter, one can also connect it to their smartphone and get call alerts, navigation and phone battery status. There is also the option of interaction with the scooter using a 5-way joystick and Amazon Alexa.

14:10 (IST) 18 May 2022

The launch event is about to start

The launch event is about to start in just a few minutes. Do not go anywhere as more exciting updates will be shared shortly!

13:56 (IST) 18 May 2022
Update or new variant?

It is still not clear if the new model of iQube would replace the existing one or be sold as a variant. We have recently seen Tata Motors launch the improved Nexon EV Max and continue to sell it alongside the regular Nexon EV.

13:41 (IST) 18 May 2022
More EVs to come

The homegrown automaker had also announced its plans to launch a complete portfolio of EV two-wheelers and three-wheelers. These new products could be in the 5-25kW range and the 2022 TVS iQube could be one of the first offerings to kick-start the onslaught of EVs from TVS.

13:31 (IST) 18 May 2022
Paving the way for the future of mobility

TVS Motor Company had recently announced their intent to partner with Jio-bp to increase the EV charging network in the country. The company has committed Rs 1,000 crore to its EV business, a lot of which has already been used.

13:16 (IST) 18 May 2022
Current charging time

The current model of iQube lacks any fast charging capabilities. Charging it to 80 per cent takes five hours while a full charge takes about seven hours. Along with a longer range, offering a faster charging option would make the life of owners easier.

13:01 (IST) 18 May 2022
Battery and range

The iQube comes with three lithium-ion batteries that have a combined capacity of 2.25kWh. They allow the scooter to have a claimed range of 75km on a single charge. Just like the performance figures, this range figure is also somewhat lower than the rest of the competition. TVS would be looking to not only improve that figure but beat the rest of the competition too.

12:40 (IST) 18 May 2022
Specifications of the existing model

The iQube comes with an electric motor that has a peak power output of 5.9bhp. This allows the scooter to achieve a top speed of 78kmph and go from 0-40kmph in 4.2 seconds Compared to the Ola S1 Pro and Ather 450X, these numbers are on the lower side and having a more powerful motor in the 2022 iQube would help it stay competitive.

12:24 (IST) 18 May 2022
Rivals of TVS iQube

Currently, the iQube faces stiff competition from the Ather 450X, Ola S1 Pro and Bajaj Chetak. The Ather 450X and Ola S1 Pro have been selling in decent numbers compared to the TVS scooter.

12:04 (IST) 18 May 2022
New colour options

The iQube sports a clean and rounded look. Glimpses shown in the teaser do not reveal any changes to the design. We could, however, see the introduction of new colour options. The scooter has only been available in white colour till now but the teaser video shows it dressed in a bright, red paint. Having more colour options could increase the product's appeal and make it enticing for more people.

11:28 (IST) 18 May 2022
First launched in 2020

Did you know that the iQube was first launched in January of 2020? Back then, this electric scooter was only available through select TVS dealerships in Bengaluru. When launched, the scooter was priced at Rs 1.15 lakh.
