Hero Lectro EHX20 Electric Cycle Launched in India at Rs 1.35 lakh
The strategic partnership among three companies – Hero Cycles Limited, Yamaha Motor Company Limited and Mitsui & Co. Ltd. – led to the launch of Lectro EHX20 electric bicycle in India at Rs. 1.35 lakh. The Lectro EHX20 flexes its superiority with 10.9 AH battery that can be swapped with another battery and comes with a range of 80 km on a full charge. It only takes between 3.5 to 4 hours to charge it completely.
The Lectro EHX20 comes with an electric motor that has been designed and developed in India at Hero Cycles’ Ghaziabad Plant. Hero has simultaneously planned to export the e-bikes to other countries around the world.
One needs not be worried if the battery charge goes empty because the e-cycle boasts a pedal and five power modes and each of them offers a different power output from electric motor. The E-cycle is also well-equipped with a torque sensor, a speed sensor and a crank sensor that helps in enabling the power mode feature. The bike boasts a Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with superior braking force. It also sports a 2X10 gear unit.
At the launch for e-bikes, Pankaj M Munjal, Chairman, and Managing Director, HMC, a Hero Motors Company, opined, “We are proud to unveil the Lectro EHX20 powered by Yamaha, the first collaborative product between Hero Cycles and Yamaha Motor. It is the first branded E-Cycle which is driven by a centre motor and resultantly delivers a high-performance experience suitable for extreme adventure sports. With promising days ahead for the E-Cycle market, we hope to deliver more such path-breaking products for different sections of the Indian audience in the future.”
An electric bicycle is a suitable option for all the buyers whose eyes are on a cycle that can be used for long distance cycling, daily commutation, and off-road activity. Green mobility is still at a very early stage in India and it still needs to go a long way, but this could be a good start.
