There is constant access to new players in the field of electrical mobility. TVS Motor, the country’s leading two-wheeler manufacturer, is set to launch its new electric scooter Kryon soon in the domestic market. TVS has invested Rs 1,000 crore to strengthen its electric vehicle portfolio.
Let us tell you that the company first showcased the Kryon Concept Electric Scooter during the 2018 Auto Expo. According to media reports, the company could introduce the scooter to the market within the next year. The company has suggested that the upcoming premium electric scooter is based on the Kryon concept. The most important thing is that this scooter will be equipped with new advanced technology and connectivity features.

Talking about the concept of this scooter from TVS, the company used an advanced lithium-ion battery that produces 12 kW of power. Furthermore, this battery has a fast charging system that can be charged to give high range in a short time. Its electric motor produces so much power that it can accelerate from 0 to 60 kilometers per hour in just 5.1 seconds.
This electric scooter delivers a range of up to 80 km on a single charge and is said to charge up to 80% in just 1 hour. While these are concept-like figures, when it comes to launching this scooter, it is expected to look a bit much improved.
The new scooter is slightly above the current model TVS iQube, but it does offer some advanced features, so its price is expected to be slightly higher than the iQube. As of now, the company only sells the iQube in select cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Coimbatore and will soon be launching in other cities in the country.
