The Urbane variant could get a 2.48 kWh battery pack instead of the 2.88 kWh unit that powers the Premium variant.
Bajaj Auto is working on a new entry-level variant of the Chetak electric scooter. The new Urbane variant is likely to get a smaller battery pack.
According to a government document, the Urbane variant will be offered with a 2.48 kWh battery pack instead of the 2.88 kWh unit that powers the Premium variant. The smaller battery is said to deliver a range of 113 km on a single charge.
The Urbane variant measures 1,894 mm in length, 725 mm in width, 1,132 mm in height, and its wheelbase is 1,330 mm. While the dimensions are identical to the Premium variant, it weighs 3 kg less.
The entry-level variant of the Chetak is already being tested on public roads. Spy images suggest that it is likely to get a more cost-effective hub-mounted motor instead of a mid-mounted set-up with a set-down gearbox integrated into the swingarm.
