TVS Motor Company: June 2023 Sales
The TVS iQube is the sole EV model available, and in June 2023, 14,462 units of e-scooters were sold, up from 4,667 units in the same month previous year. As a result, we can observe a notable rise of 102 per cent over the prior year. However, the firm also saw a decline in the sales of electric two-wheelers as a result of price increases brought on by the reduction in FAME II subsidies. In June 2023, the company's cumulative exports posted sales of 79,144 units, down from 114,449 units in June 2022. Sales of two-wheelers climbed by 7 per cent in the first quarter of this year, from 8.6 lakh units in the same month last year to 9.18 lakh units this year.
TVS iQube: Battery and Range
The 3.04kWh battery pack that powers the iQube S and the iQube each has a 100-kilometre driving range. The present battery pack with various trims, as well as the anticipated bigger (5.1kWh) battery pack with the new TVS iQube ST, employ an indigenous battery management system (BMS) and thermal management system. These batteries are also IP67-rated for dust and water protection.
TVS iQube: Features
While maintaining its 12-inch wheels and all-LED illumination, the new iQube now includes a variety of connection options that are enabled by the available TFT instrument clusters. When compared to the entry-level iQube, which has a 5-inch unit and only provides turn-by-turn navigation, the iQube S includes a bigger 7-inch TFT cluster with music controls and theme customisation tools. The top-tier ST model has a 7-inch touchscreen instrument cluster with voice recognition and OTA updates.
