TVS Motor Company has unveiled what the company describes as a "performance-oriented, electric scooter concept" at the Auto Expo 2018. According to the company, the TVS Creon Electric Scooter is "a testament to the fact that electric scooters can be both exciting as well as environment friendly." The TVS Creon features a next generation electric motor with acceleration from 0-60 kmph in under 5.1 seconds and is claimed to have a range of 80 km. The battery can be charged to 80 per cent capacity in just 60 minutes.
The TVS Creon is powered by three lithium-ion batteries capable of delivering 12 kW of instantaneous power. The compact batteries ensure high charge per volume of battery and has helped keep the dimensions of the Creon compact. TVS has tied up with Intel to develop a range of smart connected technologies for energy efficient two-wheelers. The recently launched TVS NTorq 125 has an internal combustion engine, but boasts of being India's first smart-connected scooter.
