In terms of styling, the Bajaj Chetak features a modern spin on the traditional design of its ICE namesake. The round LED headlamp gets integrated horseshoe-shaped DRLs. The electric scooter also gets sequential LED blinkers. The body panels feature a streamlined design in order to maximise the scooter’s efficiency.
The electric scooter gets features like Bluetooth connectivity, tamper alert, feather touch-activated electronic switches, a digital console, an Intelligent Battery Management System, and more. The myChetak app notifies riders of unauthorised access or an accident.
Bajaj is also working on a low-cost entry-level scooter to compete with the likes of Ola and Ather. It is rumoured that this scooter will be released as the ‘Sunny’, which was Bajaj’s best-selling affordable scooter in the ‘90s. The battery and engine specs for this entry-level scooter are still unknown. Several reports suggest that Bajaj could launch this scooter next year.
Bajaj Chetak is available in four colour options – Indigo Metallic, Velutto Rosso, Brooklyn Black, and Hazelnut. The company also offers a battery warranty of 3 years or 50,000 km (whichever comes sooner). In India, Bajaj Chetak rivals the likes of Hero Vida V1, Ola S1 X, Simple One, and TVS iQube.
