The Liger X and the Liger X+, two new self-balancing electric scooters from the Mumbai-based startup Liger Mobility, were introduced at Auto Expo 2023. Both devices use a lithium-ion battery pack, although the Liger X has a detachable one whereas the Liger X+ does not.
What We Know About the Liger X and Liger X+
The Liger X as well as the Liger X+ are two brand-new electric scooters from Mumbai-based startup Liger Mobility. Both come equipped with the business’s patented Auto Balancing technology, which enables the e-scooters to maintain their upright position from a standing position and even at slow speeds even without rider using their feet to stabilize it. This also applies to the scooters’ ability to reverse. Once the scooter reaches a certain speed, the rider can manually turn off the Auto Balancing feature.
Additionally, the Learner mode on the Liger X and Liger X+ allows the rider to control the e-top scooter’s speed in combination with the Auto Balancing function. Additionally, the models can get OTA (Over The Air) software updates.
The self-balancing function of the Liger X and X+ e-scooters, which is accomplished by a gyroscope under the seat unit, is without a doubt their main selling point.
A replaceable lithium-ion battery pack for the Liger X may be fully charged in 3 hours. It has a top speed of 65 kph and a range of 60 kilometers on a single battery charge (both claimed figures). In contrast, the Liger X+ claims to have a 100km range and employs a non-removable rechargeable battery pack that can be fully charged in 4.5 hours.
By connecting the Liger X+ to a smartphone via the exclusive app, additional capabilities like notification alerts and turn-by-turn navigation are made available on the TFT dash.
Features like live position tracking, battery temperature indication, towing, and accident notifications are shared by both scooters. The same five color choices for both are Grey, Polar White, Blue, Titanium, and Red.
Reservations for the scooters start in the middle of 2023, and delivery should start by the end of the year.
