Let’s Talk about the e-scooters and e-tipper/dumper with review, price, range etc.
Hero Electric Optima + :
Hero Optima + comes with a price tag of Rs 54,000/- and on full charge it can travel upto 90 Km. The Top Speed of Optima + is 25 km/hr.
The Top speed of the Hero Optima + is a negative point for the customers as it will hardly cross 20 km while driving this scooter. it do saves your petrol and diesel expenses but somewhere down the line the speed is compromised.
Hero Electric Photon :
Hero Photon comes with a price tag of Rs 88,000/- and the top speed of Hero Photon scooter is 45 km/hr.
This scooters looks quite good as compare to optima +. we may soon seee a price drop in future soon to attract more customers.

The E- Tipper/dumper comes with a payload capacity of 250 kg and is priced at Rs 1.75 lakh. Hero also launches another variant of 500 kg tipper.
