A short look at the Hero Electric scooters in India

Hero Electric offers one of the widest range of electric scooters in India since the manufacturer has been around for quite some time in the Indian market now. It is, therefore, deemed as the largest electric two-wheeler manufacturer in the country.

After all, the manufacturer did extensive research work up to 12 years before officially entering the Indian market in 2008. As per the last report, it now has a very wide network including 300 exclusive sales and service outlets across the nation and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Ludhiana, which the manufacturer opened up in 2007.

Hero Electric is now gearing up to start its new financial year with a slew of products catered to a very wide audience. So, for today, we’re going to discuss all the products in Hero Electric’s portfolio for the Indian market. Here goes.

1.     Hero Electric Flash

The Flash is the most affordable electric scooter in the brand’s line-up. Therefore, Hero Electric is targeting first-time electric scooter buyers with the Flash. The scooter gets a very plain no-frills design, replete with some elements as a wide front headlamp sitting at the front apron, side blinkers located up to at the handlebar, silver alloy wheels, and a glossy sheen to the paint. Powering the Flash is a 250-watt electric motor which gives the scooter a top speed of 25km/h. Moreover, the electric motor is paired to a 48-volt 20Ah battery, which, in combination, gives the scooter a riding range of 65km on a single charge.

2.     Hero Electric Optima

The second-most affordable electric scooter in the brand’s line-up, the Optima continues on the same principles as the Flash, which means it is made to make commutes an economically friendly proposition. What’s more, though, is that the Optima looks and feels a bit more upmarket than its more affordable sibling, thanks to a sleek body with a broad comfortable seat. It looks like a conventional scooter, courtesy of the higher-mounted headlamp and the side indicators mounted on the apron. The alloy wheels are also quite attractive on the Optima. Lastly, the scooter comes powered by a 250W BDLC motor powered by a 48V/20Ah (48V/28Ah for LI model), which gives the scooter the ability to reach a top speed of 25km/h and ride for up to 65km on a single charge.

3.     Hero Electric NYX

The NYX from Hero Electric bikes are very much resembles the Flash in terms of its appeal, as it comes powered by the same 250watt motor that provides a full charge range of 70km. It works in tandem with a 48-volt 20Ah battery that comes mated to an automatic transmission. It does, however, get a few extra touches here and there, which include a headlamp mounted onto the front apron, a foldable split seat, an extended floorboard for better space to position the legs of the rider, and so on. However, the NYX does miss out on some nifty modern touches as opposed to other scooters like LED lighting and a digital instrument cluster.

4.     Hero Electric Dash

The Dash is the newest entrant in Hero Electric’s range of electric scooters in the Indian market. It also features the most sophisticated design, as the front-end – as opposed to other Hero Electric scooters – looks beefy and the overall scooter looks a bit wider and more pleasing to the eye than the rest of the range. The Dash is also powered by the same 250W BDLC motor that draws power from a 48v 28 Ah Li-Ion battery, which is rated to deliver a range of about 60km on a single charge. As for the top speed, the scooter can reach up to 25km/h.

5.     Hero Electric Photon

Last but, of course, not the least, the Photon is the most expensive scooter in the Hero Electric product line-up, and the way Hero Electric has designed it makes it look a bit more upmarket and desirable than the rest of the scooters from the brand. Unlike the scooters above, this one is tuned to reach a top speed of 45km/h, and it has a maximum riding range of 80km on a single charge. The scooter is powered by a 250W BDLC motor drawing power from two electric batteries with 48V/28Ah rating. Also, grab the latest info on the upcoming scooters in India, only at autoX.
