As the year is ending, here is the list of top electric two-wheelers launched in 2022 in India.
Globally, electric vehicle infrastructure and technology are progressing quickly, and they are now beginning to become visible in our nation. The arrival of numerous significant vehicles with convincing range and charge time numbers to make them a significant alternative made 2022, overall, the most notable year for the electric vehicle sector in India. Even if the initial investment may still be high, over time the money saved on fuel and maintenance costs will more than make up for it, making EVs the best option for commuting within a city.
When it came to launching its first product, the F77, Ultraviolette took its sweet time. However, the Bengaluru-based start-up has been working on the electric motorcycle extensively and has now unveiled a product that is jam-packed with cutting-edge technology and performance. The F77 is the first electric sportbike in India and justifies its high price with some outstanding performance and range numbers.
The motorbike underwent extensive revisions following the prototype, and the finished product, which is effectively a second-generation bike, features a fixed 10.3 kWh battery pack, the largest battery in an electric motorcycle in India, with a range of up to 307 km. The most potent version of the F77, known as the “Limited Edition,” can produce up to 30.2 kW (40.5 horsepower) and 100 Nm of immediate torque.
Ola S1 Air
With the new S1 Air, Ola Electric expanded its electric scooter offensive. The e-scooter is Ola’s most affordable product yet and has features that are often found on high-end scooters. It also has Ola’s most recent MoveOS 3 software, which gives a tonne of new capabilities. The Ola S1 Air has a hub-mounted motor that has a maximum output of 4.5 kW and a 2.5 kWh battery pack that can charge from 0 to 100% in 4.5 hours. The scooter has a top speed of 90 kmph, a 0-60 kmph time of 9.8 seconds, and an IDC-certified range of 100 kilometers in eco mode.

Hero MotoCorp is embracing the adage “better late than never” as it introduces the Hero Vida V1 in India, the company’s first-ever electric two-wheeler. The Hero Vida V1 is the first electric vehicle (EV) sold under the Hero Vida brand. Two versions of the Vida V1 are available; the V1 Plus and V1 Pro have differing specifications. The V1 Pro receives a 3.94 kWh high-voltage Lithium-Ion battery, while the V1 Plus receives a 3.44 kWh battery. The advertised range and acceleration time for the Vida V1 Pro are 165 kilometers and 3.2 seconds, respectively. The V1 Plus has a 143 km range and accelerates from 0 to 40 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
Ather 450X Gen3
Compared to the Gen 2 model, the Ather 450X Gen 3 receives a significant boost in the shape of a larger 3.7 kWh battery pack. The model now claims a genuine range of 105 kilometers on a single charge, a 25% increase in range. The certified range of the electric scooter has increased to 146 km on a single charge, which is a significant improvement. Other improvements include new tires that MRF and Ather jointly designed as well as larger rearview mirrors with twice as much visibility. A bigger 100-section rear tire is also there, which enhances the handling of the electric option.
Earlier this year, Oben Electric unveiled its signature motorcycle, the Oben Roar, in India. It has a three-second 0-40 acceleration time and a top speed of 100 kmph. It has a neo-classic design. The 4.4kWh fixed battery pack charges completely in about 2 hours, and the subsequent recharge requires roughly 200 miles.
There are two Tork Kratos models available: the base Kratos and the top-of-the-line Kratos R. Each has a varied performance and charging time. With a top speed of 100 kmph and a 7.5 kW electric motor that produces 10 horsepower and 28 Nm of peak torque, the Kratos can accelerate from 0 to 40 kmph in under 4 seconds. The model has a 4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that advertises an IDC range of 180 km, although the manufacturer estimates that the real range is closer to 120 km on a single charge.
A 9 kW electric motor inside the more potent Tork Kratos R produces 12 horsepower and 38 Nm, which is 2 bhp & 10 Nm more than the standard model. Additionally, the bike has fast charging capabilities and can charge up to 80% in 60 minutes. The 0-40 kmph sprint time is unchanged, but the top speed is increased to 105 kmph. With a standard charger, charging either motorcycle takes roughly 4-5 hours.
The electric motor of the HOP OXO produces 200 Nm of peak torque and 6.2 kW (8.3 horsepower) on a 72-volt design. Three riding modes are available for the motor: sport, power, and eco. The OXO X variation, which is one of two available models, has a top speed of 90 kmph and can accelerate from 0 to 40 kmph in just four seconds. A 3.75 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with 811 NMC cells and a sophisticated BMS powers the electric motorcycle.
