Ampere Electric launches e-scooter Magnus EX at Rs 68,999 – ET Auto

Ampere said the vehicle offers best-in-class comfort and functionally superior performance with a mileage of 121 km per charge

Mumbai: Ampere Electric on Friday expanded its Magnus e-scooter range with the addition of Magnus EX with a host of improved and innovative features, priced at Rs 68,999 (ex-showroom Pune). With additional state government incentives, the overall price of the new offering will reduce further making it lucrative for the electric vehicle buyers amid the festive season, the company said.

Ampere said the vehicle offers best-in-class comfort and functionally superior performance with a mileage of 121 km per charge, it said.

“Customers are looking for more affordable ways to travel as petrol prices heavily dent savings of everyday two-wheeler commuters. Magnus EX, with its long distance per charge, enables users to do multiple trips,” said Roy Kurian, chief operating officer of Ampere Electric.

Magnus has been the preferred choice of multiple EV prospects across the country, owing to its large comfortable space and distinctive ride comfort, the company said.

It added that the customer will now also get extra power performance and deliver extraordinary savings.

Magnus EX comes with a detachable lightweight and portable advanced lithium battery for easy charge in any five-Amp socket at home, office or any plug-on-the-wall charge point, according to Ampere Electric.

Ampere, in the statement, claimed that an in-city commuter can drive up to three days in one single charge with new Magnus EX e-scooter, which comes with best-in-class optimum city driving speed up to 53 kilometres per hour (kmph).

The 1,200-watt motor is one of the highest motor capacities in this segment and one can drive the latest scooter in two modes – supersaver eco-mode and peppier power mode, it stated.

The scooter comes with a 110cc BS-VI compliant engine producing a power output of 8 BHP at 7000 RPM and torque on demand of 8.7 NM at 5500 for a high performance ride, the company said.

Auto analysts said petrol two-wheelers are suffering because they are dependent on rural markets, which are still recovering from the pandemic. In the top 10 cities both EVs and ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles have grown as people opt for personal transport, but the top 10 cities are less than one-tenth of ICE sales while they are nearly 30% of EV sales.
