Simple One Delivery Date
Talking about the deliveries, the deliveries for the Simple One electric scooter would begin in the month of March FY’23. These scooters would be delivered according to the booking status by an individual. For this purpose, the company has set up a motor line that will manufacture its own proprietary motors. After delaying the delivery schedule by multiple times, Simple Energy is now set to determine the course of deliveries.
It is also expected that the company has invested approximately Rs. 100 Crore in the Hosur facility which is a massive investment in comparison to the other EV startups in India. The state-of-art production house will work as a research and development center for future electric scooter production and changes in technology.

Simple energy rolled out its first electric scooter “One” in August 2021 and since then they have received many orders for the product. The electric scooter has an IDC range of 236 km and an acceleration of 0-40 km/hr within 2.95 seconds. The electric scooter will have a dual battery pack that can touch a top speed of 105km/hr.
