The Simple One electric scooter competes directly with the recently released Ola S1 e-scooter, the Ather 450X, and other electric scooters in the market. At the company’s Hosur facility in Tamil Nadu, one million units of the e-scooter would be produced annually in the first phase. Brazen Black, Azure White, Brazen White, and Red are the four colour possibilities for the new Simple One electric scooter.

The new Simple One e-scooter is powered by a 4.8kWh lithium-ion battery weighing more than 6kg. Because the battery is removable and portable, it will be easy to charge the e-scooter battery at home. The e-scooter can be charged to 2.5km range in 60 seconds using the loop charger.
The new Simple One e-scooter battery produces 72Nm of torque and claims to accelerate from zero to forty kilometres per hour in just 2.95 seconds. The recently introduced OLA S1 Pro is touted to be the quickest in its category, with a 0-60kmph time of 3 seconds. The new Simple One e-scooter has a range of 203 kilometres in eco mode and 236 kilometres in IDC mode on a single charge.
