Accordingly Bajaj Chetak is coming back with an all-new brand identity, and a better-looking scooter, and is hoping the country to gravitate towards it while going ‘Humara Bajaj’. Currently you must be wondering as to how eco-friendly? Well, the Chetak is now going to be all-electric, while keeping the power train of the normal scooters in the market, and also offering it a lot cheaper than its competitor the Ather. Furthermore it looks as classy as the Vespas you see on the roads, with some nice glossy and shiny paint finishes, and a touch of chrome here and there giving it its necessary class. The look of the Chetak now is a bit sized down from the older ones, and the edges have been smoothened out for it to exuberate that contemporary design.
When talking about variants, the Chetak is going to come in two variants, a base called the Bajaj Chetak Urbane which will cost Rs 1 Lakh, and a Bajaj Chetak Premium, which will start at Rs 1.15 lakh. Further powering the new Chetak electric scooter is a 4kW motor that develops 16 Nm of peak torque. It comes with an IP67-rated 3kWh (48V, 60.3 AH) lithium-ion battery, which can be charged using a 15 amp electrical outlet and the charger is complimentary and it will be installed at the customer's house.
Moreover the claimed battery life is 70,000 km. Perhaps according to Bajaj auto, the new Chetak's range is 95 km in the Eco mode and 85 km in the Sport mode.
