Called Flow, the electric two-wheeled machine will come to the streets with a range of 100 miles or so (about 160 km), close to the 130 miles threshold considered by many to be the trait of an exceptional scooter.

The engineers at 22Motors have not only solved the range problem in the Flow, but also claim to have found a fix for the long charging times required. Using a fast charger, the scooter will get enough juice to reach the 70 percent mark in just one hour, while full charge on regular plugs would take four or five hours.

The scooter is powered by a Bosch DC electric motor that gives it a top speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) and uses regenerative braking to recover otherwise lost energy.

Flow comes complete with Bluetooth connectivity and a mobile app telling the owners whatever they want to know about the state of the vehicle. GPS comes standard on the Flow, which also includes fleet management features in case a company plans to buy a bunch of them.

22Motors says sales of their new scooter will start in the near future, with a second wave of preordering to open soon. The model will only be available for now on the Indian market, as it has been designed for "Indian conditions and commuters.”

India is one of the largest countries in the world, in terms of population size, accounting for about 17 percent of humans in existence. That also makes it one of the most crowded places on Earth.

For this reason, one the favorite means of transportation for average Indians are two-wheelers. Scooters, in particular, are very popular, this type of vehicle representing over 33 percent of this market segment last year.
