Electric two-wheeler manufacturer, Hero Electric announced the launch of its new Dash e-scooter in India. The Hero Dash electric is priced from ? 62,000 (ex-showroom, India), which is part of the brand's Low Speed of offerings. It's interesting to note that Hero MotoCorp had showcased the Dash concept 110 cc scooter way back in 2014 that eventually was introduced as the Maestro Edge scooter in the market. The Hero Dash though is all electric and is not related to that concept. It comes loaded with features, positioned at a premium when compared to the other models in the company's range.
The Low Speed series limits the top speed on the electric scooters. The new Hero Dash e-scooter uses a 48 volt 28 Ah lithium-ion battery that promises a range of 60 km on a single charge. The battery can be fully charged in four hours with fast charging and has a top speed limited to 25 kmph. Designed for Indian roads, the Dash electric scooter gets a ground clearance of 145 mm, while the model is loaded on the features including LED headlamp with daytime running lights, digital instrument console, USB charging point, tubeless tyres, remote boot opening and more. Alternatively, the Dash will be offered with the Lead-Acid battery that is expected to be priced between ? 45,000-50,000.
