Chennai-based Blacksmith recently announced its debut electric motorcycle, the B2. Following that, the electric two-wheeler manufacturer has teased its new product, an all-electric scooter. Dubbed the B3, the e-scooter has been teased via images the company shared on its website.
Though they are just digital renders, they reveal interesting information about the e-scooter. Blacksmith has equipped the e-scooter with a complete LED light setup, which includes the headlight and taillight. It also gets a spacious seat, a windscreen, and a backrest. Additional features include a fully digital instrument cluster which also displays turn-by-turn navigation.
The B3 is equipped with a 5 kW continuous electric motor which makes 19.7 PS of maximum power and 96 Nm of torque. The motor is powered by the same 72V lithium-ion battery which powers the B2 electric motorcycles. This gives the scooter a claimed range of 120 km with a top speed that can be customised within a range of 60 km/h to 120 km/h
Blacksmith has not released any statement about the E-scooter’s pricing yet, but it is expected to cross the Rs 1 lakh mark (ex-showroom). The company will launch the B3 next year and it will be pitted against Ather 450 and Twenty-Two Flow, among others.Subscribe to Moneycontrol Pro and gain access to curated market data, trading recommendations, stock analysis, investment ideas and insights from market gurus.
