Do I need Licence to drive electric vehicles?
Electric scooters with a top speed of 25 km/hr do not require a driver’s licence. Hence, a driver’s licence is not required to ride our low-speed two-wheelers viz. Zing and Zoom.
A driver’s licence is required for our electric three-wheelers. Our three-wheelers are substantially powerful with a top speed of up to 45 km/hr. As a result, a valid driver’s licence is required in order to ride it.
Does my vehicle need registration?
Cycles & Scooters:
Electric scooters with a top speed of 25 km/hr do not require registration, as per the Indian government. As a result registration is not required for our low-speed vehicles (Zing & Zoom), which makes it a perfect gift for your teenaged son or daughter.
A registration is required for our electric three-wheelers. Our three-wheelers are substantially powerful with a speed ranging from 45kmph to 55kmph.
What is the charging time?
The average charging time for our cycles is 5 hours. This ensures that the charging cycle is completed safely, extending the battery’s life.
2-Wheelers & 3-Wheelers:
Our two-wheelers and three-wheelers charge on an average of 3-4 hours. This completes the charging of the vehicle in a safe manner, which in-turn elongates the battery life.
Lead-acid batteries usually take longer to get fully charged and will need approximately 7 hours to be charged completely in a safe manner.
Load Bearing Capacity?
The recommended weight that can be carried on our electric two-wheelers is up to 150 kg. The sturdiness of our vehicles ensure that you can carry this load in a secure manner and it is not recommended to carry a load over this limit.
Our electric 3-wheelers are designed and qualified to transport a load of up to 400 kg-500 kg. It is not advisable to go over the recommended load limit, which can hamper the performance of our vehicles.
Can I fit an exterior carrier?
All of our vehicles are designed to fit an external carrier. In case you need one, you can visit your nearest Kinetic showroom for further details.
How should I clean my electric vehicle?
You can clean your vehicles with a damp cloth. It is not recommended to wash your vehicle with a high-pressure water wash, as seepage of water into the battery might damage it.
