Bounce Infinity is launching under Rs.50,000 and will compete against 3 affordable electric scooters

Bangalore-based smart mobility solution firm, Bounce, is finally set to launch its first electric scooter in India. Pre-bookings for the upcoming e-scooter are expected to start from the first week of December, with deliveries to commence from January 2022.

The electric scooter is said to be available for under 50,000 INR for the swappable battery options and for around 70,000 INR for the normal battery model, which can also be removed and charged anywhere as per the user’s convenience.

In order to further enhance the buying and ownership experience, Bounce will also offer the option to rent the scooter’s batteries instead of buying them as a part of the overall scooter purchase in the swappable battery option.

The company claims that this arrangement will help reduce Bounce Infinity’s running cost by 40% as compared to a petrol scooter. We now take a look at some affordable electric scooters available in India around the price of Bounce Infinity, along with their features.
