Husqvarna Vektorr e-scooter based on Bajaj Chetak to be launched in 2022 – Technology News, Firstpost


The Husqvarna Vektorr scooter concept has been unveiled when a Swedish two-wheeler manufacturer presents its plans for the e-mobility business. A few days ago, Husqvarna gave a hazy look at its first electric motorcycle called the E-Pilen and has now revealed a handful of images and details of the brand’s first-ever scooter; a break from the standard of a company called Husqvarna Motorcycles. However, it has a fair share of distinctive design and styling tips that clearly distinguish it from Husqvarna.

One of the most important things to consider is that the Husqvarna Vektorr is based on the new Bajaj Chetak electric kickboard, which has been on sale in some Indian cities for some time. You can’t recognize the link at a glance, as in a typical Husqvarna way, Vektorr uses an annoying, one-block basket. The Round Headlight (equipped with an LED-DRL ring) stands out from the angular, square panels, and the subtle black-and-white paint system is enlivened by fluorescent yellow accents on the sides and attached to the wheels.

However, take a close look and you will see Chetak elements such as one-way rear link front suspension, one-way swivel arm, rear mono stroke, swivel arm-mounted motor (transmission transmission to the wheel eliminating the need for chain or belt drive), 12-inch alloy wheels and round display

The Husqvarna Vektorr concept is claimed to have a range of up to 95 kilometers on a full charge – the same as the Bajaj Chetak (in Eco mode) – and has a limited top speed of 45 km / h. (over 16 years old) in the European market, which can ride mopeds at speeds of up to 28 mph (45 mph). km / h). From the point of view, Bajaj Chetak can reach a speed of 70 km / h in Sport mode, but this raises the range to a maximum of 85 km.

No other technical specifications are currently distributed, but it is safe to say that the Husqvarna Vektorr is likely to mirror Chetak under the skin and has the same 3 kWh lithium-ion battery and engine power ranging from 3.8 kW to 4.1 kW and produces up to 16 Nm torque. Charging times are also likely to be similar, and a full charge will take about five hours. The Vektorr production will probably have a front disc brake, but only a combination brake system instead of ABS, driving modes, Bluetooth connectivity and reversing mode, just like we’ve seen in Chetak.

Husqvarna Vektorr will be commissioned in early 2022 and will be manufactured at the new Bajaji plant in Chakan, which will be built at a cost of SEK 650 and will also produce premium models from KTM, Husqvarna and Triumph. than electric two-wheelers. Once Bajaj is able to meet Chetak’s demand, wait for Husqvarna Vektorr to go on sale here as well. However, it’s not pocket-friendly – currently the most rudimentary Chetaks themselves pay 1.43 a law (ex-showroom), and Husqvarna almost certainly exceeds the legal mark of Rs 1.5 for a premium brand.
