Bajaj has registered a new name — Vector in India. However, it's quite interesting to note that Husqvarna also showcased an e-scooter concept with a similar name in 2021. The similarity between Bajaj's new moniker and Husqvarna's concept has spurred up a range of rumours in the electric two-wheeler sector, while the two-wheeler producer remains silent. It's important to understand that registering a trademark doesn't necessarily guarantee that a new product will be given that name. However, reports suggest that the automaker may call their anticipated sportier and more premium version of the Chetak electric scooter with the new trademarked label. If this comes out to be true, it would demonstrate Bajaj's effort to modernise and expand its range of Evs in the country. Moreover, this move would help boost the popularity of the existing Chetak EV, which faces stiff competition from other brands in the segment. While there is still some time for exact information on this new trademark, let's take a closer look at the company's new Chetak Urbane scooter, which recently went on sale in India.

New Bajaj Chetak Urbane Electric Scooter Made Its Way to India

Bajaj introduced a new Chetak variant in India at the beginning of December. Called the Chetak Urbane, this new two-wheeler comes with four striking paints — Brooklyn Black, Indigo Metallic, Cyber White, and Matte Coarse Grey, and a price tag of Rs 1.15 lakh(ex-showroom). If extra functions are desired, an upgrade known as "Tecpac" is available for Rs 1.21 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Chetak Urbane uses the same 2.9kWh battery as its predecessor but claims an IDC-certified range of 113 kilometres on a full charge, which is more than the ARAI-certified range of 108 kilometre of the Premium model. The top speed of the regular Chetak Urbane is 63km/h, which is comparable to that of the previous model. However, those who choose the Tecpac upgrade can reach speeds of up to 73km/h.

The Chetak Urbane has a longer charging time compared to the current model on sale. It takes 4 hours and 50 minutes to fully charge, while the previous model needed only 3 hours and 50 minutes. This change is due to the new variant's onboard 650W charger, which is less powerful than the 800W charger of the top-spec Premium version.
