Second Chetak electric scooter launch has been confirmed by Rajiv Bajaj himself. He also revealed the timelines the company is targeting…
So, Mr. Rajiv Bajaj (Managing Director, Bajaj Auto), while interacting with a news portal, has confirmed that they are planning to add a another product to its portfolio.
During the interaction with the news portal, Mr. Bajaj was inquired on various topics related to EV segments and he shared some interesting views of his on these queries.
The most interesting info that we get from the interaction is the company’s plan of introducing another electric scooter in the line-up. This will be Bajaj’s second electric 2-wheeler after Chetak. And since Chetak is now an umbrella sub-brand, the new scoot will come under it, probably with some suffix or prefix.
The current Chetak is an elegant looking, all-family kind of a design and hence, we believe the upcoming Chetak could either be outright sporty or commuter-ish – to cater to a different audience set.
The Chetak name has a special place in certain Indian populace and Bajaj is trying to cater to their nostalgia and love for the name. Mr. Bajaj mentioned that the new Chetak electric scooter will be ‘added in FY23’ which means the launch is planned later this year 2022 or early 2023 (but before April 2023).
While we believe the new Chetak will continue to be based on the current platform, it will be interesting to see what spec changes will Bajaj bring to the table…
