Simple One price in India

Simple One was initially launched in the country last year on August 15th, with a starting price of Rs Rs 1,09,999. This was followed by a newer variant with an improved range and a price tag of Rs 1,44,999. Interested buyers can go with either variant since both are available to pre-book on Simple Energy’s official website at Rs 1,947 with a full refund provision in case buyers change their minds. The price can further be reduced by claiming the FAME II subsidy of Rs 60,000 provided by the government on the purchase of the Simple One e-scooter.

Simple One review

Simple One appears to be a promising electric scooter for its price, at least on paper. The EV offers an impressive range, a powerful motor, 72Nm of torque, fast charging support, and an array of smart features. Since the company hasn’t started shipping the two-wheeler yet, we can’t tell you how it performs in real-life.
