eBikeGo has announced the debut of ‘RUGGED' electric moto-scooter in India. The company unveiled the e scooter in a virtual event. Touted as India's toughest EV, the body of the electric moto scooter is composed of a cradle chassis and steel frame. With the government's recent announcement that electric vehicles will not be subject to road tax, the G1's base model could end up costing substantially less than fuel 2-wheelers, the company said in a statement.

The RUGGED features a 3kW motor that can reach a top speed of 70 km/h. 'RUGGED' will be available in two versions: G1 and G1+, with costs ranging between Rs. 79,999 and Rs. 99,999. The FAME II subsidy, but not the state subsidy, are included in these ex-showroom costs. RUGGED is now taking pre-bookings on RUGGED's official website with the refundable amount of Rs 499. The deliveries will began in November 2021.

It comes with a 2 x 2 kWh battery that may be replaced. The batteries charge in 3.5 hours and claimed to offer a range of 160 kilometres. It has a storage capacity of 30 litres. It includes 12 built-in smart sensors. Using the RUGGED APP, the user can unlock the bikes and drive the electric bike. It has an anti-theft feature that ensures the safety of the driver in the case of an accident or other emergency.

RUGGED scooter was designed and manufactured in India, and it is touted as be the strongest and most durable electric vehicle ever constructed for Indian roads. The bike comes with 7-year warranty on the chassis.

Rugged allows battery switching without the user getting off of the bike. It comes with theft prevention bolts and clamps for all high-cost components, as well as thorough vandalism protection for fleet operations.

RUGGED, which will be manufactured in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, in conjunction with Boom Motors, said it expects to reach a production capacity of 1 lakh vehicles soon and is confident in fulfilling pre-orders for its electric scooter in the coming months. 

In addition, Rugged is hitting the market via experience centers in nine states. In the upcoming months, it plans to have 3000+ charging stations. Rugged will be available in all cities in India via online pre-booking and offline experience centres. 

“We are extremely happy to announce the launch of ‘RUGGED,' India's most sustainable, intelligent, and sturdy electric moto-scooter, after significant study and a three-year wait. It is designed entirely for Indian roads, with 2 x 2 kWh swappable batteries and advanced sensors. RUGGED is also India's first indigenously manufactured hub motor. We at eBikeGo are ecstatic to announce the debut of ‘Rugged,' which will change the face of e-mobility in India and push the limits of innovation in the electric bike category.” said Irfan Khan, Founder & CEO of eBikeGo.
