by Mayank Dhingra 18 May 2022


TVS Motor has introduced the refreshed iQube electric scooter that comes priced between Rs 98,564 and Rs 108,690 on-road Delhi including the FAME and other state subsidies, for the entry-level iQube and iQube S trims, respectively.

The company has commenced bookings as well as deliveries of the refreshed iQube, which is presently available in 33 cities and is slated to reach 52 more cities within India.

TVS Motor has also introduced a top-spec iQube ST variant, which claims a range of 140km on a single charge. The range has nearly doubled compared to 75km in the economy mode in the outgoing model. While pre-bookings for this feature-loaded variant have commenced, TVS hasn’t yet revealed prices of the iQube ST.

The refreshed iQube retains its all-LED lights and 12-inch wheels, but gets a host of connectivity features, driven by the various TFT instrument clusters on offer. While the entry-level iQube gets a 5-inch unit that supports turn-by-turn navigation, the iQube S comes equipped with a larger 7-inch TFT cluster that offers music controls and theme personalisation as well.

The ST variant, on the other hand, features a 7-inch touchscreen instrument cluster, which is also ready for OTA updates, as well as offers voice assistance.

According to Sudarshan Venu, MD, TVS Motor Company, “We will continue to scale new benchmarks in connected mobility and EV with our innovations and advanced technology offerings.”

The iQube and iQube S come powered by a 3.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering a certified range of 100km on a single charge. The iQube ST gets a larger 5.1kWh battery pack which claims a range of 140km, and is also compatible with fast charging through a 1.5kW off-board charger that comes bundled along with the scooter.

Customers can also avail the 950W and 650W off-board chargers, which claim a recharge time of 3 and 4.5 hours, respectively.
