TVS Motor Company has been giving us hints of multiple products that will be launched at the end of this month. This time around, the company has teased its upcoming electric scooter. The short teaser video doesn’t reveal much about the eco-friendly offering and it only shows a scooter with a conventional design zipping past the text that says “Charge Life. Coming Soon!” The upcoming TVS electric scooter might carry design cues from the Creon electric scooter concept that was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. Keeping in mind the tough competition that the e-scooter will have to face from the Ather 450 and Bajaj Chetak, the said offering is expected to get some unseen and interesting features to woo the customers. There is a healthy possibility that the electric scooter to be launched will be the production-spec Creon.

Now, taking a quick recap of the Auto Expo 2018, the TVS Creon electric scooter showcased at the biennial event featured a 12kW electric motor that is powered by three lithium-ion batteries. In terms of performance, the e-scooter is claimed to do a 0-60 kmph sprint in 5.1 seconds. When it comes to range, the Creon boasts 80 km on a single full charge. The scooter features a fast-charging facility as well and the batteries can be charged to 80 percent in just one hour. In order to offer connected features on the electric scooter, TVS also has a collaboration with Intel.
In terms of features, TVS Creon electric scooter gets Cloud connectivity, multiple riding modes, parking assist, geofencing, GPS along with anti-theft support. The scooter will most likely also get smartphone connectivity. From the looks of it, TVS Creon is an exciting offering and in order to be in the game, the company will have to launch the scooter at a tempting price point, not very far from Rs 1 lakh price point, to be precise.
