A Chennai-based startup, the Volta Zap is a crossover electric bicycle with a rechargeable battery. It claims to offer a mileage of 60km on a single charge even without pedaling and will cost just about Rs 7 paise per km. It will be priced around Rs 35,000, which makes it way expensive than the usual bicycle, but some may consider it as a cheaper alternative to a motor bike (considering the non pedalling and the way it functions) that needs registration, etc.
The battery weighs 3kg which can also be used as a power bank for your devices like phones. It is said to be the lightest among such bicycles. Moreover, the bike comes with a universal charger functionality and an LED display. The Volta Zap comes with a Pedal Assist feature that gives 3 full cycle wheel rotation for every single pedal rotation made. There are LED reflectors for night-time riding and integrated facilities for smartphones and customisable body panels.
