Design

The Bajaj Chetak electric scooter looks robust and stands tall on 12-inch cast alloy wheels, and with an all-metal body with a neo-retro design. Bajaj says the bodywork has been completely developed in-house, but the silhouette does resemble the Vespa Elettrica and the Vespa GTS 300 in many ways. The new Bajaj Chetak gets a LED headlight, with a strip of LED daytime running light, a round, retro-styled digital instrument cluster, as well as nicely finished "feather touch" switches, along with scrolling LED blinkers. Overall fit and finish is quite nice, and the new Bajaj Chetak will likely stand out among other electric scooters available in India right now.

Technology

So far, the detailed specifications haven't been revealed, but Bajaj has revealed that the new Chetak will come with an IP67 rated high-tech lithium-ion battery with Nickel Cobalt Aluminium Oxide (NCA) cells. The battery is not swappable, but can be charged using a standard household 5-15 amp electrical outlet. There's an on-board Intelligent Battery Management System which controls charge and discharge, and there's also regenerative braking.
