Uttrakhand-based Crayon Motors has launched its low-speed electric scooter called Envy. It’s available in two variants: VRLA (a.k.a lead acid battery) and lithium ion. It’s available in three colours: white, blue and orange. Unfortunately, neither of them comply with FAME-II subsidy. Crayon’s portfolio already includes the Zeez, another low-speed e-scooter.
The Crayon Envy is powered by 250W BLDC motor that delivers a top speed of 25km. Thanks to its low speed, it can be ridden without a licence. Both scooters offer a claimed range of 70km per charge but vary in terms of charge times. VRLA, for instance, takes up to 5-6 hours for a full charge while the lithium-ion variant which features a removable battery takes between 2-3 hours. It can be charged via a conventional 5 Amp socket. The life cycle of these batteries fluctuates between 500 to 800 cycles depending on the model.
They are also quite light. The VRLA variant weighs 100kg and the Li-ion version tips the scales at just 80kg. On the feature front, the duo comes equipped with LED lights, a digital instrument console, reverse assist, keyless ignition & central locking, USB charging, alloy wheels and a front disc brake.
Crayon Motors has presence in cities like Jammu, Punjab, Pant Nagar, Bijnor, Trivandrum, Shahjahanpur, Agra, among others. The brand is currently working on setting up its dealership network across capitals and major cities in India and Nepal with tier 2 and tier 3 cities being the main focus. Crayon’s also taken up the bold initiative of planting a tree for every scooter sold. It aims to plant over 1,000 trees over the next four months.
