After several hints, TVS has finally released the TVS X at Rs 2.50 lakh. The X is now the most expensive electric scooter on the market in India at this price.
A 4.4kWh battery with an IDC range of 140km powers the X, which is housed in a twin-spar frame suspended by a telescopic fork and a mono-shock. The battery pack may be charged using the Smart X Home quick charger, which can charge it from 0 to 50 percent in 50 minutes (optional add-on 3kW fast charger), or the 950W portable charger, which takes 4 hours and 30 minutes to charge from 0 to 80 percent. The portable charger costs Rs 16,275 (including GST).
The TVS X’s PMSM motor is rated at 11kW peak power (7kW continuous power) and 40Nm peak torque. A 220mm disc in front and a 195mm disc in back provide braking.
The incorporation of ABS (although a single-channel system) on the X makes it the first e-scooter to do so. The TVS X rides on 12-inch wheels with a large 100-section tyre in front and a 110-section hoop in back.
The TVS X is based on TVS’ XLETON platform and features a maxi-style shape, yet the seat height is quite approachable at 770mm. The Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) motor is ram-air cooled, and TVS claims the X can accelerate from a standstill to 40kph in 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 105kph.
There are three riding modes to choose from: Xtealth, Xtride, and Xonic; regenerative braking is also available at various amounts.
The TVS X comes with a 10.25-inch TFT dash that can be changed to any angle to better fit the rider. This massive dashboard boasts a slew of functions, including Bluetooth connectivity for music playback and navigation warnings.
In fact, if you’re stationary, you may use the PlayTech entertainment system to watch videos or play games on the dash. The X additionally includes reverse assist, cruise control, and a hill-hold function.
The styling is extremely radical, resembling the well-received Creon concept from the 2018 Auto Show. The most apparent difference here is that the X lacks a floorboard, instead relying on the spine of the frame to fill that space.
The X also has a split-seat configuration, which is unusual for a scooter. In terms of storage, the underseat area has a capacity of 19 liters.
The TVS X is the most expensive e-scooter on the market today, priced at Rs 2.50 lakh, and does not qualify for the FAME-II subsidy. Bookings will open today, and delivery of the TVS X will begin in November 2023, initially in Bengaluru and then throughout India by March 2024. The first 2,000 buyers will receive a Smartwatch and a ‘Curated Concierge’ package worth Rs 18,000 for free.
