2024 Bajaj Chetak Premium – What’s New?
For 2024, the top-spec Premium variant of the Chetak e-scooter receives a new 5-inch coloured TFT rider’s display that comes with Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation assist, music control, and call/SMS alerts. However, it’s worth noting that these features are limited to just TecPac trim, whereas the Standard variant continues to get a monotone display. The TecPac variant also gets a hill hold assist function and sequential blinkers for added convenience and safety.
Design-wise, the Bajaj Chetak remain unchanged, save for the blacked-out treatment in the headlamps, indicator and alloy wheel surrounds, offering a subtle refresh. The other notable features of the Chetak Premium comprise tamper alerts, OTA updates, vehicle health information, and a smart key fob for easy access.
What Powers The Bajaj Chetak Premium?
Powering the Bajaj Chetak Premium variant is a 3.2kWh battery pack that now offers an increased range of 127 kilometres on a single charge and has a top speed of 73 mph. It also has two riding modes – Eco and Sport- along with a reverse mode.
The Chetak Premium comes with a 650W onboard charger that takes up to 4 hrs 30 mins to fully charge the battery.
Bajaj offers the 2024 Chetak Premium in three colour options: Indigo Blue, Hazelnut, and Brooklyn Black.
In the long-range electric scooter segment, the 2024 Bajaj Chetak faces competition from the Ola S1 Pro, Ather 450X, Simple One and TVS iQube.
