Geliose Mobility, a startup incubated at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, has unveiled the ‘HOPE’ electric scooter. This scooter only costs 20 paise a kilometer to use.
‘HOPE’ is a low-cost scooter that can be used for deliveries and local commuting. It has a maximum speed of 25 kilometers per hour. Additionally, it is included in the e-vehicle discount category and does not require a driver’s license or registration to operate.
‘HOPE’ comes with a compact charger and a lithium-ion battery that can be fully charged via standard household outlets. In 4 hours, this battery will be completely charged. Customers can choose between two separate battery power levels of 50 km and 75 km.
According to IIT Delhi, this scooter has new hardware such as a battery control system, data tracking system, and pedal-assist unit. It includes IoT, which uses data mining to keep consumers up to date with their scooters. Because of these characteristics, ‘HOPE’ falls into the category of future smart and wired scooters.
Geliose Mobility is one of the few businesses that offer exclusive features such as the scooter’s pedal-assist system. Customers can choose whether to use the pedal or the throttle during the ride, depending on their preference. ‘HOPE’ is fitted with special reverse mode features for easy parking, allowing the scooter to be parked in even the most difficult of locations.
The frame of ‘HOPE’ is sturdy and lightweight, making it ideal for modern use. The scooter’s construction and lean nature allow it to quickly manoeuvre across congested areas. The vehicle has a ground-breaking slide and ride feature that allows passengers to attach various load carrying attachments or a rear seat based on their needs.
Geliose Mobility is working with logistics and service firms to address local delivery needs in the dairy, e-commerce, grocery, essentials, and other fulfillment industries.
The firm would set up charging and servicing hubs for the scooters in the delivery partners’ most regular routes. The organization can provide medical services such as roadside assistance and roadside battery repair in the event of an emergency.
Helios Mobility’s Founder and CEO, Aditya Tiwari, said, “Every day, we are living in an age of rising pollution and climate change, necessitating concerted efforts across all sectors, especially in the field of automobiles. Geliose Mobility was established three years ago. ‘HOPE’ is the centerpiece of our efforts to build a vehicle ecosystem. ‘HOPE’ has a starting price of Rs 46,999, making it the most cost-effective Internet-connected scooter on the market.
