Simple One deliveries have been delayed to September. This hasn’t gone down well with customers waiting for their scooters…

Simple Energy took to their Twitter handle to share the latest update related to commencement of deliveries of their ‘One’ electric scooter. And it is not a pretty read if you are one of the prospects. 

Through a statement, Simple Energy notified their existing customers who have pre-booked their scooters, and prospective buyers, that the company has delayed the start of deliveries of the e-scooters from July to the first week of September 2022.

The reason stated by the company for this delay is their ‘conscious call’ to re-check their systems once again in the light of recent EV fire instances and new regulations & mandates introduced by the Central Government regarding the same.
