In the wake of growing concerns over the safety of electric vehicles, especially when it comes to batteries, Bounce Infinity assures that they have worked to ensure the safety and quality of batteries before shipping them with the scooters. Moreover, the startup claims that it has deployed “quality gates” at various stages in the production line.

The Infinity E1 electric scooter features a removable 2 kWh (48V, IP67) lithium-ion battery pack along with a 1.5 kW electric motor. It can reportedly reach a top speed of 65 kmph. Additionally, the company says that its EV offers a riding range of up to 85 km on a single charge.
Bounce’s Infinity E1 is available in five colours—Sporty Red, Sparkle Black, Pearl White, Desat Silver, and Comet Grey.
