Chetak is available in Premium model.
Chetak premium is offered in four different colours - Hazelnut, Velluto Russo (Red), Indigo Metallic (Blue), and Brooklyn Black.
Chetak offers 3 ride modes. 2 Forward - Eco and Sports and 1 Reverse. In Eco Mode, the Chetak automatically detects your need for extra power and can switch to Sports mode and then back to Eco Mode. The Reverse mode allows you to gracefully back out of parking slots.
You may use any normal 220V, 5A, 3 pin earthed socket to Charge your Chetak with the provided Chetak charging cable and pin adapter. In such a case, the consumer is responsible for any damage to the Chetak onboard equipment due to voltage above 270V rms or any other electrical issues or malfunction at charging place.
In addition, you may purchase Chetak branded home charging Box, that protects your charging cable and Chetak from voltage and current surges from the electricity supply line. It also secures your Chetak charging cable so that it can be connected and disconnected only by the owner. While it is not compulsory for you to purchase a home charging box, it is strongly recommended that you do so.
The Chetak lithium-ion battery is designed to last for 70000 kms which normally takes 7 years, provided the user ensures the lithium-ion battery is kept charged above 15% of capacity and used regularly. We offer a warranty of 3 years or 50000 kms (whichever comes earlier).
In all lithium-ion battery Electric Vehicles the battery capacity, and hence specified range, reduces with time, use and cumulative charge-discharge cycles. A lithium-ion Battery is considered acceptable and within specified life when it has upto 70% capacity of a brand new battery.
While designing the Chetak, safety of the rider and vehicle is of paramount consideration. There have been conscious choices made at every step to ensure a safe & incident-free ownership experience.
Chetak uses high quality advanced chemistry Lithium Ion cells sourced directly from only reputed top-quality manufacturers in the world. We validate cell consistency and use automated sorting and batching prior to battery assembly. Within the battery itself, we use multiple internal safety measures like a Current Interruption Device that isolates the cell in any event of specific malperformance.
With over 75 years of expertise in the automotive industry, we have strived to strike the right balance between battery safety, battery life and performance delivery in the Chetak. Our proprietary Battery Management System and Motor Controller work together to deliver the appropriate performance while monitoring battery health to prevent the occurrence of any unfortunate incidents. The top speed capability of the Chetak is hence restricted, keeping the above in mind.
Chetak uses an integrated on-board charger, similar to those found on cars, to ensure that there is no potential misuse of the charger and charging parameters. Safety features like automatic earth detection, broken neutral detection, voltage and current surge isolation is implemented internally within the vehicle itself with no dependence on outside equipment. Further, Chetak prohibits use of fast charging to ensure that the battery is never in the range where safety could potentially be compromised.
Chetak is a ground up design for the hot, dusty and varied Indian environment. Apart from IP67 water resistance rating, Chetak implements super-efficient heat transfer solutions with the use of a powerful fan to cool the battery at any point in time. You can hear the operation of this powerful fan during charging and occasionally whilst riding the scooter. You can experience the heat removal from the battery and other electronic systems by standing behind the Chetak when the fan is running.
Any automobile is susceptible to risk due to the inherent energy density of the fuel stored in the vehicle’s energy storage unit (similar to a tank of petrol present in most automobile). Chetak stores its energy – electricity- in its battery and is designed to operate safely and reliably in all seasons and terrains, provided the following basic care is taken by users.
Charging must be done in dry conditions from a sheltered and earthed standard 3 pin plug point in good condition with a 10A rated MCB for protection. This is essential for safety and installation of the charging point should be done by a competent electrician. Where possible, Chetak recommends use of industrial socket complying with IEC 60309 (15A, single-phase)
Chetak is sold with its own charging cable that has inbuilt safety devices to isolate the vehicle and charger in-case there is any earthing leakage or isolation. The Charging cable is a primary safety device supporting IEC 60309 industrial standard with a snap-on adapter for the standard household 3 pin 5A socket. Never use any other cable for charging! You are welcome to purchase additional OEM charging cables from your Chetak dealership, if you desire.
Any vehicle is prone to deterioration with use. This is due to the effect of vibration, temperature, moisture etc. Only a Chetak Authorised workshop has all the necessary tools and qualified technicians to check and restore your vehicle hardware and software to its technically correct condition. Please ensure that you have your Chetak serviced as indicated in your owners manual. You may locate your nearest authorised Chetak service station on www.chetak.com
