Ampere Electric has launched its most premium electric scooter in the Indian market. Called the Nexus, the scooter comes in two variants – EX and ST, priced at Rs 1.10 lakh and Rs 1.20 lakh, respectively. Both prices are introductory, ex-showroom. After the introductory offer ends, the prices of the Ampere EX and ST will be increased to Rs 1.20 lakh and Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively. The bookings for the Ampere Nexus are underway for a token amount of Rs 9,999, while the deliveries for the same will commence by the end of May 2024 across Ampere's 400+ outlets in the country.

In terms of design, the Ampere Nexus strays away from the NXG concept showcased at Auto Expo 2023. It is said to be a family-oriented electric scooter, which gets a 235mm long floorboard, a large underseat storage area, a diamond-cut LED headlight, flat body panels, a rectangular LED taillight, as well as air vents both at the front and rear to aid cooling. You get a choice of four colour options: Indian Red, Zanskar Aqua, Steel Grey, and Lunar White.

Ampere Nexus: Features

Features-wise, both variants of the Ampere Nexus offer full LED lighting. While the entry-level EX features a 6.2-inch LCD screen, the top-spec variant sports a 7.0-inch touchscreen TFT display with turn-by-turn navigation and Bluetooth. The latter also gets an auto day/night mode. Other bits on the scooter include five riding modes and hill-hold assist. 

Ampere Nexus: Battery, Motor

This in-house developed Ampere Nexus is equipped with an IP67-rated, 3kWh LFP (lithium iron phosphate) battery pack with a certified range of 136 kilometres. The battery, which takes about 3.5 hours to charge, sends power to a mid-mounted electric motor that makes 5.3bhp of peak power. A 15A charger is available as standard. Ampere says the top speed of the Nexus is 93km/h in 'Power' mode. However, the performance in City and Eco modes reduces to 63km/h and 42km/h, respectively. Also, there is a Limp Home mode that gets activated when the battery dips below 20 per cent. You get a reverse mode as well. 

Ampere Nexus: Suspension, Brakes

The Ampere Nexus features a new underbone chassis, with a telescopic fork at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. Stopping power comes from a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear, both of which are mounted on 12-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 90/90-section tyres.
