Pre-bookings of the e-moped have also commenced on the brand's website for a token amount of Rs 1,999.
The Detel Easy Plus comes with a 20Ah lithium-ion battery that powers a 250W hub-mounted BLDC electric motor, which is proficient enough of thrusting it to a top speed of 25kmph. Using a 5-ampere charger, the battery takes approximately 3-4 hours for a full charge and can deliver a range of 60km/charge. Detel offers its battery with a 2 Years / 40,000 km standard warranty, whereas the vehicle only gets a 1-year warranty.

The Detel Easy Plus is available in five colors: Metallic Red, Pearl White, Gunmetal, Metallic Black, and Metallic Yellow.
