Simple Energy, an EV and clean energy start-up, have announced and introduced an upgraded motor for their flagship scooter – Simple One.
The company explains that the new motor will boost the performance of the scooter further by offering better efficiency and thermal management. This new updated motor will feature in their Simple One electric scooters that will begin reaching showrooms in the month of June this year.
Simple Energy iterates that the newly unveiled motor, which is also patented and an intellectual property (IP) of the company, is an upgrade to the already existing high-spec motor and can now produce 72 Nm of torque. This has allowed them to house a larger 4.8 kWh battery pack in their scooter which, they claim, will allow the scooter to travel more than 200 km on a single charge.
They add that a higher level of vertical integration has further allowed them to attain an unmatched efficiency of 96% which has aided in achieving the 200+ km range. This extraordinary development has motivated and accelerated future product development on their end.
Taking to twitter, Mr. Suhas Rajkumar (Founder & CEO, Simple Energy) shared this achievement made by their R&D team –
Further commenting on the their breakthrough, he said –
“When we began working on the Simple One more than two years ago, we knew it had to be the best in the industry. While we had already developed the most powerful motor last year, we found there was room for further improvement. This breakthrough is an upgrade on efficiency and performance for us as the motor is the key to a perfect EV. 50 iterations later, this has only added to making the scooter even better. We are certain that the end consumer will be thrilled to experience it.”
The Simple One electric scooters will be produced at phase-1 of the company’s manufacturing unit located at Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The company has shared that this manufacturing plant has an annual capacity of up to 1 million units.
The factory is currently getting ready for mass manufacturing and will be operational in the coming weeks. Simple has also commissioned a second plant in Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu, which will spread across 600 acres and have a capacity of 12.5 million units annually.
