The Husqvarna Vektorr electric scooter will be made by Bajaj in India

Production of Husqvarna’s first all-electric model is coming closer to reality.

The Husqvarna Vektorr electric scooter will be made by Bajaj in India

Husqvarna unveiled the Vektorr, a prototype electric scooter that suggested the company's future electrification aspirations, in May 2021. According to spy images, development has definitely begun, and we could see the scooter in the metal much sooner than later. It's evident that things are moving in the right direction; we just don't know what to expect just yet. Fortunately, because the Vektorr will be made in India by Bajaj, KTM and Husqvarna's partner company, we may expect numerous similarities to the Chetak electric scooter.

At present, we don't know if the Vektorr will have the same radical style as the concept model or a more minimalist aesthetic like the Bajaj Chetak. All sightings of the scooter show it heavily concealed under camouflage.  We do know that it will be manufactured in the same facility as the Chetak. As a result, we can expect it to share the same platform, and be capable of a top speed of 45 kilometers per hour and a range of 95 kilometers on a single charge.

If the speed is limited to around 70 kilometers per hour, impressive range can be achieved, just like the Chetak. For city duties, a brushless DC electric motor with a power output of around 5.4 horsepower does a decent job of propelling the all-electric runabout. The electric motor draws power from a 3kWh lithium battery pack. It wouldn't be unexpected if the Vektorr included switchable riding modes for extra convenience, as well as to provide a more premium edge in the rapidly growing electric scooter market.

We may expect some of the Bajaj Chetak's premium features to be carried over to the Vektorr. For starters, we can see a single-sided front fork in the concept version of the Vektorr. Visible on the concept scooter, too,   braking hardware which consists of a front disc brake and a rear drum brake. Finally , the Vektorr is expected to include high-tech electronic amenities such as a full-color TFT instrument panel and full-LED lighting.
