The company claimed it is working closely with authorised dealers to ensure fast delivery and efficient after-sales service
Almost 22 months after its presentation, e-scooter manufacturer Simple Energy began delivering its first model, the Simple ONE, to consumers in Bengaluru on Tuesday.
The firm announced its first product on August 15, 2021, but did not formally debut it until May 23 of this year at a price of Rs. 1.45 lakh (ex-showroom), or about Rs. 35,000 more than it had stated when pre-bookings began. The business said in a statement on Tuesday that deliveries would start and that they would be made gradually, beginning in Bengaluru.
"We have commenced the deliveries of the Simple ONE, starting with customers in Bengaluru. We have created a holistic product that is both sustainable and an efficient transportation option for our customers," Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO of Simple Energy, said.
In order to assure prompt delivery and effective after-sales service, the firm claimed it is collaborating closely with licensed dealers. It also said it wants to increase its retail footprint to 40–50 cities by way of a network of 160–180 retail outlets. According to the manufacturer, Simple ONE has the longest-range electric two-wheeler in India, with a range of 212 kilometres. The e-scooter is outfitted with safety features and intelligent networking options, the company claimed, and is anticipated to meet the needs of daily commuters.
