In this article, we spotlight the various electric scooter options available in the Indian market, along with their costs, features, and benefits.

The cost of electric scooters in India varies depending on multiple factors such as brand, battery capacity, motor power, and additional features. Typically, the price range lies between INR 45,000 to INR 1.5 Lakh. Here are a few popular models at varying price points:

Benefits of Electric Scooters in India

  1. Environmentally Friendly: With no tailpipe emissions, electric scooters contribute significantly to reduced air pollution, a pressing concern in Indian cities.

  2. Low Running Costs: The cost of ‘fueling’ your electric scooter is considerably lower than the cost of petrol or diesel vehicles. Furthermore, electric scooters have fewer moving parts, resulting in lower maintenance costs.

  3. Government Incentives: The Indian government’s FAME II (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) scheme offers incentives for purchasing electric scooters, making them more affordable for the average consumer.

  1. Reduced Dependence on Fossil Fuels: As electric scooters rely on electricity to recharge their batteries, they reduce dependence on oil imports and contribute to achieving greater energy security in the country.


India's electric scooter market offers a wide range of options to cater to various budgets and preferences. Make an informed choice by considering factors like battery capacity, range, and additional features alongside cost. With multiple benefits including reduced pollution and lower running costs, electric scooters signify a step towards a greener and more cost-effective future.
