Joy e-bike Mihos: Everything you need to know
The Joy e-bike Mihos is designed using Poly DiCycloPentadiene (PDCP) to give it added durability and a layer of protection due to its flexibility in absorbing impact on the road. The scooter stands at dimensions of 1,864 mm x 700 mm x 1,178 mm and has a wheelbase of 1,360mm. Designed for bumpy Indian roads, the Mihos clears the ground at 175mm.
The Mihos is powered by a 1.5kW BLDC motor that produces a peak torque of 95Nm. The top speed has been capped at 70kmph and the scooter can go from 0-40kmph in under 7 seconds. The electric motor derives its power from a 2.5kWh battery pack that offers a driving range of 100km on a full charge. This battery pack can be fully charged in under 4 hours. The battery pack has a range of safety sensors including over-current protection and thermal cut-off for enhanced protection in Indian weather conditions.
In terms of features, the Joy e-bike Mihos gets Bluetooth connectivity via Joy E – connect app, battery status tracking, reverse mode, GPS sensing, geo-fencing, regenerative braking, and a smart remote control with an anti-theft alarm.
Speaking about opening the bookings, Mr Yatin Gupte, Chairman & Managing Director, Wardwizard Innovations & Mobility Ltd, said, “We have received a phenomenal response at Auto Expo for MIHOS. Visitors not only appreciated its retro design but also applauded the material Poly DiCycloPentadiene (PDCPD) used in making the scooter for additional safety. In response to the positive consumer reaction, we are excited about commencing the online booking of MIHOS free of cost. The idea is to be available to our patrons through both online and offline mediums. With its top-notch technology and premium features, we are confident of meeting the aspirations of the customers.”
The introductory starting price of Rs 1.49 lakh has been made available to the first 5,000 customers only. As mentioned earlier, Joy e-bike will start rolling out the deliveries on March 2023. Currently, the Joy e-bike rivals the likes of Ola S1 Pro, Hero Vida V1, Greta Harper ZX, Komaki DT 3000, and TVS iQube.
