The Magnus 60 was one of the company's low-speed electric scooters and It retailed at a starting price of Rs 44,699 (ex-showroom). The Magnus 60 electric scooter came equipped with a 60Volt 20Ah lead-acid battery pack.

Replacing the Magnus 60 is the new Ampere Magnus Pro electric scooter. The company recently launched the electric scooter and retails at a starting price of Rs 73,990*. It also becomes the company's flagship offering.

Thoughts About The Ampere Magnus 60 Electric Scooter Discontinued In India
Ampere recently announced that it has opened 10 new dealerships after the lockdown. It has achieved a new sales milestone of 60,000 electric scooters sold since the company's inception.
