Kinetic Motors Announces Plans Of Launching Kinetic Luna All-Electric Moped: Details

Former two-wheeler manufacturer Kinetic Motors is all set to resurrect its iconic Kinetic Luna moped in the form of an all-electric. The brand was once famous for models such as its Kinetic Honda range of scooters, and its ICE version of the 50cc Luna.

According to the Financial Express, the Luna was a 50cc two-stroke moped that was extremely easy to ride, and offered fantastic fuel economy. The brand eventually stopped production of the vehicle after Kinetic sold its infrastructure to Mahindra Two-Wheelers.

The new Kinetic Luna electric vehicle will most likely feature a 1kW electric motor that will be paired to a Lithium-ion battery. The skinny runabout is expected to offer a top speed of 25kmph, and a range of up to 80km per charge. These specs will allow for the electric moped to be ridden around without the need of a driver's license.

Kinetic's new Luna electric is expected to stay design true to its Luna predecessors, and will most likely arrive as a bare bones styled vehicle with trendy features that include LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster, and a USB console. The two-wheeler is expected to feature connected technology as well.

The vehicles only direct competition at the moment is the Gemopai Miso moped, but one could expect other manufacturers to launch similar vehicles closer to Kinetic's planned launch.

Industry expectations are that the Kinetic Luna electric will be launched at roughly Rs 50,000, on-road. The brand is also planning to maximise its sales potential by setting up dealerships across the country.

Thoughts About The Kinetic Luna Electric Vehicle

The Luna has always been a fantastic workhorse in the Indian markets, along with TVS' range of 50cc to 100cc mopeds. Launching an electric version could help the brand restore some of its old glory it had during its Kinetic Honda days.

With the electric two wheeler scene priming with activity, the return of the brand's infamous Luna will be nothing short of legendary - a low-cost offering with a classic appeal. We expect the Luna to do very well considering it has the backing of a once trusted brand, and it does not require a license to ride.
