The increasing push toward electric mobility, particularly in the two-wheeler category, has resulted in an influx of Electric Vehicle (EV) brands.
Odysse, a Mumbai-based electric two-wheeler maker, has introduced two new scooters in the nation, the V2 and V2+.
These new electric scooters are priced at Rs 75,000 and Rs 97,500 (both prices are ex-showroom). Odysse once featured four models in its lineup, including the E2go, Hawk+, Racer, and Evoqis. The business plans to extend its lineup by releasing two new models before the end of the year.
Odysse V2, V2+ Electric Scooters - Specifications
Odysse outfitted these scooters with two IP 67-rated water-resistant battery packs capable of providing an uninterrupted range of 150km on a single charge. According to the EV manufacturing company, the new waterproof motor and battery have considerably enhanced the performance and endurance of its electric vehicles while also reducing repair and maintenance during rainy seasons.
Customers may select from six different colours: black, peach, white, pista, red, and blue. Aside from the colour pallet, Odysse has features like as Light-Emitting Diode (LED) illumination, spacious under-seat storage, an anti-theft lock, and passive battery cooling. The electric scooters have 12-inch alloy wheels on the front. Disc brakes at both ends provide stopping power.
Styling Odysse Electric Scooter
In terms of style, both the V2 and V2+ have taken a straightforward and minimalistic approach to their designs. A rectangular LED headlamp situated on the front apron and flanked by LED indicators is included. The front of the handlebar now includes a small LED stripe that serves as a Daytime Running Lights (DRLs).
It has a level floorboard, which might come in handy for placing baggage between the rider's legs.
A flat single-piece seat, rectangular rearview mirrors, a single-piece grab rail, and a rectangular backrest for the pillion are all features. The main distinction between the V2 and V2+ is the latter's availability of a replaceable battery pack. Odysse has begun manufacturing operations in Mumbai and Hyderabad, in addition to Ahmedabad.
By the end of this year, Odysse hopes to have 100 dealerships around the country. The business is also developing its own Internet of Things (IoT) platform, which will be available soon. This will link all of their cars and enhance the overall user experience.
The most popular model in Odysse's current portfolio is the Evoqis, which costs Rs 1.58 lakh (ex-showroom). The fully-faired motorbike is powered by a 3kW electric motor with a peak speed of 80 kmph and a claimed acceleration time of 4.2 seconds from 0 to 50 kmph. The battery is powerful enough to provide a maximum range of 100 kilometres on a single charge.
