Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, has stepped into the electric vehicle market with its latest offering: the electric version of its best-selling bike, Splendor. As the demand for electric vehicles grows, Hero aims to capture this market by introducing an eco-friendly alternative to its iconic motorcycle.
Dual Battery Packs for Enhanced Performance
The Electric Hero Splendor comes equipped with two different battery packs, allowing riders to choose between varying ranges. Here are the details:
- 4kWh Battery Pack: The standard configuration includes a fixed 4kWh battery pack. With this setup, riders can expect a range of approximately 120 kilometers on a single charge.
- Additional 2kWh Battery Pack: Hero has innovatively designed the bike to accommodate an extra 2kWh battery pack. This additional storage space allows riders to extend their range by up to 50%, bringing it to around 180 kilometers when both battery packs are utilized.
Unique Solution for Charging Challenges
One of the common challenges faced by electric vehicle owners is finding convenient charging stations. To address this issue, Hero has taken a novel approach with the Electric Hero Splendor:
- The fixed 4kWh battery pack provides a reliable base range.
- Riders can choose to install the additional 2kWh battery pack when needed, effectively increasing their range.
- What’s remarkable is that the extra storage battery pack is removable. If you find yourself away from charging infrastructure, simply detach it from the bike and charge it separately.
Depending on your preference and riding needs, here are the available range options:
- 4kWh Battery Pack: Up to 120 kilometers on a single charge.
- 6kWh Battery Pack: Extends the range to approximately 180 kilometers.
