The Neo is a smaller scooter that will be in the same segment as the 50cc ICE scooter. The new EV comes with a range of around 37 km. The scooter supports battery swapping technology.
The E01 is the more powerful of the two scooters. The E01 will be the segment equivalent of a 125cc scooter. This new product will be more capable of giving competition to the Ather 450 series and Ola S1. However, the limit may be too low.
