About Optima

Hero Electric Optima is an electric scooter available at a starting price of Rs. 51,576 in India. It is available in 2 variants and 4 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 67,119. Hero Electric Optima generates 250 W power from its motor. With both front and rear drum brakes, Hero Electric Optima comes up with combined braking system of both wheels.

Hero Electric Optima is an electric scooter that is available in two variants – City Speed (HX) and Comfort Speed (LX).

The LX variant is available with two battery options – lead acid (LA) and lithium-ion (LI). Both variants of the LX range boast a top speed of 25kmph. In terms of range, the lead acid version is claimed to deliver a range of 50km per charge while the lithium-ion variant can cover 85km per charge.

The charging time for the lead acid variant is about eight to 10 hours. The lithium-ion version, on the other hand, takes four to five hours to fully recharge. Being a slow speed scooter, the Optima (LX) does not require a registration.

In terms of styling, the LX variant looks similar to the HX version. The sleek design is accompanied by features such as a halogen headlight, apron-mounted front blinkers, and a broad comfortable seat. The colour options include four choices – Red, Grey, Blue, and White.

The hardware on the scooter includes telescopic front forks and dual rear shock absorbers. The anchoring duties are handled by drum brakes at both ends.
