FD Motors is set to launch the Granth E-bike, an electric scooter with Nepali design assembled in China, on Baisakh 23, 2080. The CEO of the company, Sujan Dhungel, stated that the scooter is eco-friendly and well-suited for Nepali roads. F.D. Motors has completed the assembly industry in Nepal in the final phase, after designing electric scooters to be assembled in China and sold in the market in the first phase. Granth E-Bikes offers high-level electric scooters with facilities priced between 200,000 to 300,000 Nepalese rupees.
The Granth E-bike scooter uses a side drive motor, which is efficient and easy to handle on uphill and downhill roads. The side drive motor is equipped with permanent magnet synchronous motor technology, also used by Tesla, providing good power and performance. On the other hand, other scooters generally use hub motors, which are suitable for plain areas but not as efficient on uphill and downhill roads.
The scooter also uses lithium iron phosphate batteries, which have a longer range, and come with a 3-year warranty, as does the motor. The battery can be fully charged in 4 to 4.5 hours, providing a maximum range of 110 kilometers. The regenerative braking system of the battery helps to recharge it when the brakes are applied, increasing the range. Additionally, a fast charger is available with the scooter.
