TVS has issued a recall for its well-known iQube electric scooter due to a potential chassis problem. The recall applies to e-scooters produced between July 10, 2023, and September 9, 2023. It focuses on the bridge tube, a chassis component that may affect the EV's ride and handling over time. While there has been no formal announcement, the recall seems to be prompted by reports of chassis failure in some units, including a YouTube video from Rajasthan depicting the client's chassis breakdown. Although the number of units impacted has not been disclosed by the manufacturer, sales data from the same time last year indicates that roughly 45,000 units were sold over the three months of August through October 2023.

TVS will contact clients who purchased iQube within the stated period to bring their scooters to the closest service facility so that experts can inspect them and, if needed, provide free repairs.

For those who are unaware, TVS launched the 2024 iQube electric scooter series in India last month. The EV now has a new base model (Rs 94,999) with a 2.2kWh battery pack and a claimed real-world range of 75 kilometres. Its battery can be charged from 0 to 80% with a standard 950W charger. The EV boasts a 5-inch TFT display, turn-by-turn navigation, tow and collision alerts, and 30 litres of trunk space. It comes in two colours: walnut brown and pearl white. 

TVS Motors May Sales Highlights

In May 2024, TVS reported selling 2,71,140 two-wheelers domestically, a 7% rise from 2,52,690 units sold in the same month the previous year. The total sales for the previous month were higher than TVS's 3,19,295 units sold in May 2023, representing a 13% YoY increase. According to the press statement, scooters and motorcycles accounted for 1,45,305 units (up 20% YoY) and 1,73,627 units (up 7% YoY) of the total two-wheeler sales in May 2024. The EVs, on the other hand, comprised 4% YoY growth in May 2024 with retail sales of 18,674 units (May 2023: 17,953 units).
