Commenting on launch, Suhas Rajkumar, CEO and founder of Simple Energy, said:
When we conceived the Simple One, we had the aim of offering an electric scooter that could offer enough range for users to not have to worry about range or charging. Offering an extra battery will allow power users to reach destinations that no other electric two-wheeler in India can. This additional battery can easily fit in the boot of the scooter offering a range of over 300 km. This is a big milestone – not just for Simple Energy, but for the EV industry. This move will also go a long way in bolstering the perception of electric scooters.

The Simple One comes in Brazen Black, Namma Red, Azure Blue, and Grace White colour options. The electric scooter with an improved additional battery pack is priced at ₹1.44 lakhs (ex-showroom), while the standard range model will be available for ₹1.09 lakhs (ex-showroom). Users can book the Simple One EV for ₹1,947 at Simple Energy’s website. The brand has announced that deliveries of their flagship electric scooter will begin in June 2022.
