Simple Energy announced the launch of the much-anticipated Simple One electric scooter a few days ago in India. According to the EV maker, the Simple One e-scooter will go on sale on May 23. Keeping up with the same, the firm has begun production of its long-awaited EV. According to market reports, the Bengaluru-based electric vehicle start-up has started producing electric scooters at its Shoolagiri facility in Tamil Nadu, India. Reports further claim that the EV maker will also reveal the delivery date shortly. For the uninitiated, Simple Energy launched the model in 2021 at Rs 1.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Bengaluru). Mechanically, it included a 4.5kW motor and a 4.8kWh battery pack. Later, the manufacturer revealed a third battery pack choice for an increased range. However, the deliveries of the e-scooter didn't commence at that time. Now, after almost two years, the company is introducing the vehicle, and we hope it to sport a range of improvements over the last version. Let's quickly have a glance at the older specs and features, which are likely to carry forward on the 2023 model.
