Detel Easy, India’s cheapest electric moped, sold out in 2 days

Last week, Detel, the Indian startup that focuses on gadgets, launched the Easy electric moped at INR 19,999. The company claims that this is the country’s most affordable electric two-wheeler and says that it sold out the first stock (of about 1,100 units) in just 48 hours.

The Detel Easy features a very basic design, although there’s not much one can expect in that aspect given the rock-bottom price. It measures 1,570 mm in length, 620 mm in width and 1,050 mm in height. No driving license or vehicle registration to drive this low-speed electric moped.
