Bajaj Chetak bookings re-started only a couple of days back and due to uncertainties in supply chain the company is taking limited stocks…
Bajaj has sent us a press note with a funny headline – “Chetak bookings open and close“. And that is what it has done actually.
After a gap, Bajaj opened bookings of its lone electric scooter Chetak on the auspicious occasion of Gudi Padwa on 13th April 2021 at 9 am. It informs that many confirmed bookings were received and understanding the uncertain situation, it had to close bookings within 48 hours.
Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director of the company said that the company is conscious of the uncertain supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID led lockdowns and it does not want prospect customers to keep waiting for their steeds. Hence, bookings were closed when an appropriate number was reached. However, there is no information of how many bookings did the company receive.
Rakesh also shared that as soon as the supply chain issues are resolved, it will re-open bookings for all its customers. He added that the company also intends to venture into more cities by next quarter. It must be known that Chetak is currently available only in Bangalore and Pune.
Recently, Bajaj increased the prices of Chetak and the scooter is now available at Rs 1.15 Lakh for the Urbane variant and Rs 1.20 Lakh for the Premium trim.
