Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto had stated that the company's Urbanite brand will be Tesla of two-wheelers in India and with that being said, we can expect that the said electric scooter will arrive as a premium offering. Technical bits about the Bajaj Urbanite electric scooter are currently a mystery but we expect it to come with a decent range and top speed. Once launched, the scooter will primarily go up against the likes of the Ather 450 that is currently in good demand and is one of India's best electric scooters on sale.

In terms of features, you can expect this upcoming offering by Bajaj to get a fully digital instrument cluster, smartphone connectivity, USB charger and navigation assist to give a tough fight to its rivals. Also, Bajaj Auto must be aiming to take advantage of the FAME-II subsidy that will help it price the scooter competitively in the Indian two-wheeler market.
