Bajaj Chetak Electric price announcement
It is important to note that Bajaj Auto has not yet revealed prices of the Chetak electric. At the time of unveiling last month, it was mentioned that the scooter will be officially launched in early 2020. However, now the two-wheeler manufacturer has revealed that it will launch the Chetak electric in India in the month of January 2020. As a result, we will know the final price of the most-awaited upcoming electric scooter in India in a couple of months.
It is worth noting that Rajiv Bajaj, MD of Bajaj Auto, has indicated that the Chetak Electric will be priced aggressively. We expect it to be launched in a price range of Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom).
Bajaj Chetak Electric Bookings Start Date
We do know now that the Bajaj Chetak’s India launch will take place in January 2020. The company has also announced that it will start accepting bookings for the electric scooter immediately after the launch.
Sadly, there has been no announcement as to when the deliveries of the Chetak Electric in India will start.
Bajaj Chetak Electric Service Interval
Bajaj Auto has also revealed details around the maintenance and service interval of Chetak electric scooters. The company is recommending a service interval of 15,000 km. This is significantly longer than that of conventional petrol-powered scooters. For example, the Honda Activa has an oil change recommendation period of 3,000 km. The longer service interval is due to the lower number of moving parts in an electric powertrain.
Warranty period and Battery life of Chetak electric
Bajaj has announced that the Chetak Electric be offered with a standard warranty of 3-years or 50,000 km, whichever is earlier. The company has also claimed that the Bajaj Chetak’s battery has been engineered and designed to have a life of 70,000 km. After this period, owners will be able to replace the battery pack by paying an amount. Interestingly, price and other capacity-related details of the battery pack used in the Chetak electric haven’t been revealed yet.
