Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler company Simple Energy is all set to roll out the Simple One electric scooter from its manufacturing plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu.

The manufacturing plant named ‘Simple Vision 1.0’ is ready for production. The plant is spread across 2,00,000 sq ft and is built with an initial investment of over ₹100 crores. It has the capacity to produce 10 lakh electric scooters per year.

CEO of Simple Energy, Suhas Rajkumar, posted this on Twitter. He said: Was a Big day today ! Simple Vision 1.0 ready to roll out, More details to follow soon.

The Simple One electric scooter, launched in August 2021, has a standard variant priced at ₹1,09,999 (ex-showroom) with a range of 203km and a long-range variant priced at ₹1,44,999 (ex-showroom) with a range of over 300km in ideal conditions, featuring an additional battery pack.

The Simple One electric scooter boasts an 8.5kW motor that was developed in-house by the company. With a 96% efficiency rate and peak torque of 72Nm, this motor allows the scooter to reach 0-40 km/h in just 2.77 seconds, making it the quickest scooter available.

The Simple One electric scooter is a technologically advanced vehicle, equipped with a variety of smart features such as 4G connectivity, Bluetooth, OTA updates, music and call controls, an SOS message feature, geo-fencing, document storage, remote telemetry, fast charger location, and TPMS. These features can all be easily accessed through the scooter’s 7-inch touchscreen display.

The scooter also supports fast charging. The company is working on a fast-charging network called One Loop, which will have a charging rate of 2.5 km/minute.

Simple Energy also conducted test rides of the scooter in 13 cities last year.

The manufacturing plant is ready but the company has not yet announced when production and deliveries will begin. Now it remains to be seen how this scooter is received after its launch. Whether it will be able to compete with companies like Ola, Ather, and Vida or not.
