Polarity, a developer of sustainable mobility solutions,
has recently unveiled six electric smart Bikes in Mumbai this month. These will
be the first-of-their-kind road-legal EVs with pedal assistance. The brand has
released teaser images of its bikes, revealing the sleek and stylish designs.
Polarity is coming up with its six unique pre-production
prototype Smart Bikes that have been in the making since 2017. The six bikes
are categorised into two groups– Sport and Executive. Model codes are S1K, S2K,
S3K, E1K, E2K and E3K. The Polarity S3K and E3K Smart Bikes, the top-end Sport
and Executive models respectively, are capable of achieving top speeds of
100kmph. All bikes have a minimum range of 80km and are not reliant on charging
infrastructure due to their pedal assistance feature. Polarity aims to capitalise
on this for rapid growth in the EV industry. All bikes come with lithium-ion
batteries and electric hub motors ranging from 1-3kW.
Pedal assistance ensures easy transportation to your
destination even if the battery is completely discharged, thus solving the
problem of range anxiety that is often associated with electric vehicles. The
compact design of Polarity bikes will allow riders to enter service elevators
of apartment buildings and park them inside their homes. Mounted on a custom made
stand, it can be used as an exercise tool as well.
These bikes will be available for pre-booking on their
website at a refundable booking amount of Rs1,001 once unveiled.
