Let’s delve into the exciting details of this groundbreaking scooter:
- Cutting-Edge Safety: The TVS X takes safety to the next level by being the first electric scooter in India to feature a single-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). This innovative safety feature enhances control and stability during braking, setting a new benchmark for electric scooters.
- Power-Packed Performance: At the heart of the TVS X is a powerful Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) that delivers an impressive peak power of 11kW, along with a continuous power output of 7kW. The scooter accelerates from 0 to 40kph in a remarkable 2.6 seconds and achieves a top speed of 105kph, making it a true performance-oriented electric scooter.
- Long-Lasting Battery: The TVS X is equipped with a 4.4kWh battery pack that offers a substantial Indian Drive Cycle (IDC) range of 140km. The battery is seamlessly integrated into a twin-spar frame, suspended by a telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
- Flexible Charging Options: Charging the TVS X is convenient and versatile. The Smart X Home rapid charger can charge the battery from 0 to 50 percent in just 50 minutes. Additionally, an optional 3kW fast charger is available for even quicker charging. The scooter also comes with a 950W portable charger that takes around 4 hours and 30 minutes to charge from 0 to 80 percent.
- Innovative Display and Connectivity: The TVS X boasts a state-of-the-art 10.25-inch TFT display that can be adjusted to suit the rider’s preferences. The display offers Bluetooth connectivity for music playback and navigation alerts. The PlayTech entertainment system allows users to enjoy videos and games while stationary.
- Exceptional Design: Inspired by the acclaimed Creon concept showcased at Auto Expo 2018, the TVS X features a distinctive and captivating design. Notably, the absence of a traditional floorboard is replaced by the frame’s spine, adding a unique touch to the scooter’s aesthetics.
- Exclusive Ownership Experience: Despite its premium price tag, the TVS X offers an extraordinary ownership experience. Bookings have already begun, with deliveries set to commence in November 2023. Early adopters of the first 2,000 units will receive a complimentary Smartwatch and a ‘Curated Concierge’ package valued at Rs 18,000.
