Husqvarna has recently revealed the new concept of its electric scooter. Based on the E-01, the scooter will be called Husqvarna Vektorr, which will be based on Bajaj Chetak and will have the same motor as well. The electric scooter from Husqvarna is expected to launch by 2022 in the Indian market. However, the scooter’s price is unknown until now and will be kept under the wrap for quite a long time.
Husqvarna Vektorr Overview
The new Husqvarna Vektorr will be built at the Bajaj motors manufacturing factory in Pune, India. Husqvarna recently revealed its electric Bike, Husqvarna E-Pilen, and now have announced the scooter design. It seems that the company is in the changing global market and making its mark in the electric vehicle segment too.
Features and Design
In 2020, Husqvarna revealed the E-01 electric scooter concept with various curves, funky design, and a retro but futuristic design. The design and styling of the Husqvarna Vektorr are similar to the concept of the E-01 scooter. The scooter has lots of curves, flowing panels, with a circular, LED headlamp up front. Large and glossy panels surround the headlamp, and there is mudguard covers almost coming half of the wheels and tires and have a sporty upright riding posture.
Power and Performance
Although the Husqvarna E-Pilen had swappable batteries, the Vektorr may not have such features because Bajaj Chetak, in which the model is based, does not have that feature.
The Husqvarna Vektorr is expected to be powered by 48V/6.3Ah battery pack. This battery generates power for the 4080W BLDC motor. This is the same combination used in the Bajaj Chetak, and several of its components will be shared between these two scooters.
Husqvarna Vektorr Price in Nepal and Availability
The new Husqvarna Vektorr is expected to launch in 2022, although a fixed date is not announced. The pricing of the scooter is also kept under the wrap as only the first look of the vehicle is revealed. Although, no news has been made for the price and availability of the scooter in Nepal.
Husqvarna was quoted saying,
“The Vektorr Concept is the first electric scooter ever produced by Husqvarna Motorcycles and is aimed squarely at the urban commuter who demands a compact, stylish and effective personal transport solution to fit their busy lifestyle.”
Husqvarna is popular for manufacturing excellent motorcycles and also knows that electric motorcycles are the future of mobility. So, the company plans to introduce different bikes and scooters in the EV segment in the near future.
