Electric scooters have always been looked down on in comparison to the fueled ones. YADEA, a premium electric scooter brand is all set to embark its way into the Nepali market. Their main motive is to change the perception of how electric two-wheelers are viewed with their high-end e-Scooters.
The company plans to roll out two e-Scooters to start – Yadea C1S, and Yadea G5, and one e-Bike – Yadea e-MTB. These are some highly engineered and stylish scooters. They look better than any e-Scooters that have been brought to Nepal to this date, that’s for sure.
Kuzu Nepal Pvt. Ltd. is the authorized distributor of DFSK vehicles in Nepal. They’ll be the ones to launch the e-Scooters and e-Bike from Yadea in Nepal.
But let’s talk about the company first.
Yadea Technology Group Co. Ltd. or YADEA is a high-end electric two-wheeler manufacturing enterprise. After about 20 years of development, they are now taking lead in the electric two-wheeled vehicle industry. Honestly, it’s good to see a dedicated electric scooter company that excels in power, energy, safety systems, and appearance design.
Yadea has a total of seven production bases. These include Tianjin, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Chongqing, Anhui, and Hanoi in Vietnam. These production bases can push out roughly 12 million units annually. At the moment, they sell an average of 6 million units every year. Thanks to the sales network that covers 83 countries around the world. That’s impressive.
Yadea e-Scooters in Nepal
Yadea is set for its debut in Nepal with two of its e-Scooters – Yadea C1S and Yadea G5. In addition to the e-scooters, they’ll be bringing the Yadea e-MTD, an e-Bike. Not to be confused tho, these are more of a mountain bike with big tires.
Yadea C1S is a GTR 3.0 electromotor powered e-scooter with a 32Ah 60V Lithium battery. The electromotor can generate a maximum power of an impressive 3500W and a max torque of 138Nm.
The 60V battery is supposed to cover a total range of 80km on a single charge. It takes somewhere around 3.5 to 8.5 hours to get fully charged. The top speed of C1S is said to be 60kmph. But I’m more concerned about the pick-up of this e-scooter. Generally, electric vehicles fall behind on inclined roads, I guess we will have to wait to find out.
Furthermore, the Yadea C1S features dual disc brakes, keyless start, eco-mode, and much more high-end technologies. Plus, with a 25-litre of storage capacity, you might as well carry some water bottles and notebooks.
Yadea G5 shares a similar GTR 3.0 electromotor with C1S, however, it produces less power. This one can generate a maximum power of 2300W and a max torque of 120Nm. Slightly less powered but nothing too serious.
The G5 is accompanied by a 32Ah 60V Lithium battery and claims a top speed of 50 to 55 Kmph. Expect an average range of 55km on a single charge. The e-scooter features similar technology as C1S and has an IP57 waterproof rating, so you need not worry about rainy days.
Yadea e-MTB is an electromotor bike with features like dual-disc brakes, fat front & rear tires, a speedometer, and more. Basically, an electrically motored mountain bike. However, Yadea C1S and G5 remain the highlight of their upcoming launch.
Yadea e-Scooter Price in Nepal
Apart from the models that are about to roll out by Yadea, there’s no release of information regarding their pricing and launch. I’d say it will take roughly 2 to 3 months before the launch of Yadea e-Scooters in Nepal.
The festive season is approaching. That means there will be a lot of hype about price drops and discounts. Don’t be surprised if Yadea decides to launch during the time-frame of Dashain & Tihar.
Personally, I’m excited to see how this thing turns out. Surely, it seems like electric vehicles are the future. They have done it successfully with the cars and hopefully, electric two-wheelers will someday be just as much value. It’s the waiting game from now, but we will make sure to keep you updated.
