Hero Electric, not to be confused with Hero MotoCorp, has announced limited time discount of Rs 7,090 on their entry level electric scooter.
Hero Electric Flash e-scooter is now available at a starting price of Rs 29,990. To be honest, that’s mighty impressive entry price point. This is possible because Hero Electric is currently offering a limited period mammoth discount of Rs 7,090 on the scooter.
That’s not all. Paytm benefits are even higher. As high as Rs 10,500 on Flash lead acid, and the lithium-ion range. Benefits and offers vary depending on variant. Hero Electric Flash e-scooter is the manufacturer’s most affordable offering. As of now, the revised price list reads as follows – Hero Flash lead-acid powered variant at Rs 29,990 (Pan India) and Rs 32,710 (North East India).
Hero Flash electric is aimed at young and first-time buyers. A target audience that is eco-conscious and strive for clean mobility. In essence, Flash is a low cost, lightweight and modern e-scooter that strives to be value for money.
In attempting to be the perfect alternative to traditional scooters, Flash features comfortable seats, an attractive design, LED headlights, mobile charging, and regenerative braking. Kerb weight stands at 69kg, so the scooter is easy to manoeuver and balance in tight spaces.
Hero Electric has a wide range of scooters on offer, and also a wide and growing network. This is essential as the e-scooter space is beginning to become a more comprehensive read. While sales still haven’t rocked the market, the segment offers hope, a future line of business, and may one day be the very bane of existence. This, while we advance to a day when fossil fuels are no longer available. Then there’s the pledge of a cleaner world that big names are going to have to adhere to at some point.
Last week Bajaj resurrected its Chetak, as the Chetak e-scooter. Ather Energy too works in the space but with limited offerings, and market that’s still trying to understand what’s going on, Hero Electric sure does have a viable advantage. A low price point, and a wider range of e-scooters. The electric landscape is changing, and is no longer a domain dominated by big name manufacturers.
