Evolet India has launched the new Pony electric scooter, as part of its range of entry-level, low-speed electric scooters. The new Evolet Pony is the brand’s most affordable scooter and is offered in two variants – Pony Classic and the Pony EZ – both sporting different battery options. The Pony Derby e-scooter is priced from Rs. 39,499 (ex-showroom) and sports a neo-retro design language along the lines of the Polo e-scooter. The model gets curved body panels with the apron-mounted headlamp that gets a nice black finish. The top-cowl has been given a miss and exposes the handlebar. A small digital instrument console takes its place instead.
The Evolet Pony electric scooter’s digital console is a retro-styled round-shaped unit, while the feature list includes alloy wheels, and LED lights. The Pony EZ uses a VRLA battery, while the Pony Classic uses a lithium-ion battery, both of which offer different range and charging times. Power on the Evolet Pony comes from a 250 watt BLDC electric motor with a peak power of 350 watt. The lithium-ion battery model offers a range of 65 km on a single charge and can be charged in five hours, while the VRLA version has a range of 55-60 km with a charging time of eight-nine hours. The top-speed on both variants is restricted to 25 kmph.
The Evolet Pony e-scooter gets telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear, while disc brakes at either end take care of braking duties with e-ABS as a standard feature. The Pony rides on 10-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres and has a kerb weight ranging between 82-95 kg, depending on the variant. It also gets a low seat height of 750 mm. The ground clearance stands at 160 mm. Evolet is offering a 3-year warranty on the battery and 1-year warranty on the motor.
In addition, the Evolet Derby can be charged at a home socket with ease, while there's a fully mobile connectivity feature as well that allows access to features like geofencing, setting up alarms and notifications, viewing driving scores, manage service appointments and get new product updates. The Evolet Pony is offered in three colour options including – silver, midnight blue and lavender.
