In terms of prime features, the TVS iQube electric scooter comes with bits like all-LED lighting, park assist, USB charging port, boot light, a fully coloured instrument cluster, and also, TVS’ SmartXonnect that enables smartphone connectivity. TVS iQube comes with a company claimed range of 75 km (under Eco Mode) and is capable of achieving a top speed of 78 kmph. Speaking of charging, a charge from 0 to 80 percent takes around 5 hours while a full juice requires around 7 hours.
The home charger will only start charging the electric scooter if it’s authenticated by the SmartXonnect app or the RFID card, thereby ensuring no unauthorized usage or power theft. TVS iQube is powered by a silent, hub-mounted 5.9 hp electric motor that is paired with three lithium-ion battery packs. Stopping power is delivered with the help of a 220mm disc brake upfront along with a 130mm drum unit at the rear. The electric scooter rides on 12-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.
