iGowise Mobility, Bengaluru-based EV startup, is all set to premiere its crossover SUV Scooter BeiGo X4 in the Indian market on 26th January 2023.
This unique e-scooter is an embodiment of eye-catching yet minimalistic design, ingenious engineering and state-of-the-art technology that can elevate user lifestyle by making urban commute comfortable & safe like never before.
When enquired about the unique design, “BeiGo eBike is based on the fusion of the beast & the bee. It draws inspiration from the beauty of the life nurturing honeybee at the same time built rugged & resilient like a mountain-antelope!”, exclaims Suresh Salla, CTO & Chief of Design at iGo.
Talking of resilience, BeiGo X4’s real USP is its twin-wheel integrated power-train technology that facilitates on-demand self-balancing. ‘Always feet on-board’ is the perfect way to travel fatigue-free even in heavy traffic. Even on slopes. Even while reversing. “While many attempted to build a self-balancing scooter, iGo’s innovative engineering ingenuity is bringing this stabilisation without compromising on the performance & agility and without using expensive or high energy-demanding technologies”, continued Mr. Suresh who holds more than 20 patents in mobility technologies.
150 KM practical range, 2500+ cycle ultra-durable fire-resistant LifePO4 batteries, 60L of boot space, spacious flat floor legroom, inbuilt pillion footrest and to top it all triple-disc anti-skid braking system make it a compelling proposition. It is as if the vehicle has been tailor-made for the Indian roads and Indian needs. “It’s what you get when a noble mission, user obsession & great execution come together”, chimes in Sravan Appana, CEO of iGo. An alumnus of the ISB who built world-class technology products in fintech, cloud & IOT domains, Mr. Sravan joined hands with Mr. Suresh, a serial entrepreneur in the mobility space for the common mission of making two-wheeler mobility safer, smarter & accessible.
“Beyond exceptional engineering, our forte is in mobility technologies including smart BMS, ADAS, collision detection alarms & data-driven riding pattern detection. Utilising IOT & advanced AI technologies, we will introduce exciting cashbacks and rewards for incentivizing riders who demonstrate responsible driving patterns & safe road etiquette”.
Leveraging this connected technology, iGo plans further to introduce a unique proposition of zero-down-payment pay-as-you-go vehicle subscription. It is in talks with several EV financing partners to make safe mobility affordable to the masses. “A highly durable vehicle coupled with data-driven insights makes a radical difference in vehicle financing. It helps alleviate the biggest concerns EV financiers face today that of assessing vehicle condition & estimating resale value”.
This incredibly innovative crossover scooter is expected to be priced at an affordable introductory price tag of 1.1 lakhs for the base-variant along with a 5-year warranty up to 1 lakh kilometres for the pioneer customers.
When enquired about the readiness to market, “We’ve run on-road testing for 1000’s of kilometres over multiple product iterations on diverse-terrains. We’ve also developed reliable tier-1 Indian vendors for all the major automotive components with meticulous focus on quality & availability of spares,” says Mr. Sravan.
The company’s facility in Whitefield, Bangalore, already has an installed capacity of 30K units annually. The startup further investing in automation tools & sophisticated testing equipment is in the final stages of productionisation.
“iGo is the brand culmination of the non-compromising attitude, no-fuss lifestyle & distinctive personality of our rider. iGoan refuses to compromise safety for performance, comfort for space, reliability for affordability, community for convenience, a safer today for a greener tomorrow. Exactly why BeiGo X4 is the perfect companion that is as unrelenting as our rider”, Mr. Sravan concluded.
iGo is premiering this unique innovation on the 26th January contributing to the Resolve@75 initiative as part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. Live broadcast will be available on the company’s youtube & social media handles.
