In order to be precise, the company has opened bookings for the Chetak in Pune, Bengaluru, Nagpur, Mysore, Mangalore and Aurangabad.

The booking amount of the Bajaj Chetak electric scooter is set at Rs 2,000. Now going into the details of the EV, the Chetak is powered by a 3.8 kW electric motor that is good for developing 5 hp of power and 16.2 Nm of torque. The said motor is paired to a 3 kWh lithium-ion battery, all thanks to which the Chetak delivers a claimed range of up to 95 km (In Eco mode) on a single full charge.
The electric scooter can hit a top speed of 70 kmph. Bajaj Auto is currently aiming to make the Chetak available in over 20 cities across India by next year. The Chetak will have a tough fight as the premium electric scooter segment in India recently saw the entry of two newcomers namely Ola S1 range and the Simple One. While the Ola electric scooter comes with a generous range and great features at a competitive price, the Simple One has a 200+ km range to flaunt.
