Nearly a decade after Bajaj Auto suspended the production of its flagship offering – Chetak scooter – and took to motorcycle only route, the legendary Chetak brand has come alive again in a new avatar. Bajaj Auto last week launched transformed Chetak which would now be available to the consumers in the electric vehicle format.
According to a company release, the new Chetak features a hypnotic horseshoe shaped LED headlight with DRLs, feather touch activated electronic switches and sequential scrolling LED blinkers. At the heart of the new Chetak is an IP67 rated high-tech Lithium Ion battery with NCA cells. The battery can be easily charged using a standard household 5-15 amp electrical outlet. The new Chetak is made at a state-of-the-art dust-free, temperature controlled facility at Chakan to exacting standards using the best materials and cutting edge robotic technology. The new Chetak will also be offered in the overseas markets in the coming years.
On the occasion of Chetak EV launch, “Chetak Electric Yatra” was flagged off by Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways and Amitabh Kant, CEO Niti Ayog in New Delhi.
