These efforts are now forming a larger vision, Simple Vision 1.0,” said Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO of Simple Energy.

The Simple One e-scooter claims to offer a range of 236 kilometers under ideal conditions, but the introduction of an additional 1.6 kWh battery pack further increases that figure. This battery can be stored in the trunk of the electric scooter, which adds to the convenience.

The Simple One electric scooter will be equipped with an upgraded 8.5 kW motor that produces 72 Nm of torque. It offers fast charging options, 30 liters of boot space and a host of smart features such as on-board navigation, ride modes, phone apps, call and music controls and more.
