Hero Electric just introduced a new EV, the Hero Eddy, a low-speed electric scooter. This scooter is aimed at people looking for an entry-level electric scooter, as well as those looking for a short commute, preferably on large campuses. The company is marketing this product as something tailor-made for last-mile connectivity. The Eddy comes with a hefty price tag, given the features and range it offers.
Hero Eddy Electric Scooter Specifications
The product comes from the house of Hero, one of the largest two-wheeler makers in the country. The new Hero Eddy is a small and lightweight low-speed electric scooter with a focus on modern mobility, and that’s apparent both in the looks and guts of the scooter. It is primarily aimed at commuters with short ride distances and is a perfect fit for last-mile commuting. The Hero Eddy uses a 250W brushless DC motor paired with a 51.2V/30Ah battery pack. The scooter’s powertrain is said to achieve a top speed of 25kmph and deliver 85km of claimed range on a single charge.
The battery on the Eddy takes somewhere between 4 and 5 hours to get a full top-up. Other features of the scooter include telescopic front suspension, 12-inch alloy wheels, front and rear drum brakes, LED lighting, and a flat footboard/floorboard. Apart from this, the scooter gets some familiar features that are mostly standard on electric scooters at this point in time. That includes a digital instrument console, LED lighting, Find My Bike, Follow Me Headlamps, reverse mode, smartphone charging, and an anti-theft system.
