Walton’s new e-bike will cost 10-15 paisa per kilo
Shah Alan Noor: Walton Digi-Tech Industries Limited introduced electric bicycles or scooters to the market in the country. The brand name of this new product is Takion. It has already been launched in the market in two models or versions.
The organization informed that it has already launched the bike on the market. According to the company, the price of the new bike is affordable for people. And this bike will be economical in transportation cost. It will cost you only 10 to 15 paise per kilometer.
At a recent event, the chairman of Walton Digi-Tech Industries, SM Rezaul Alam, said that the popularity of electric vehicles in Bangladesh has not yet reached such a high level. However, these vehicles are very popular in developed countries. No one can think of traveling long distances in electric vehicles due to lack of infrastructure management in Bangladesh.
He said, “Through Takion, we have taken the initiative to get customers across the country accustomed to electric vehicles. In the future, it is planned to install fast charging stations in different regions of the country to recharge the battery as quickly as possible.
According to Walton, the Tachyon 1.00 model will use a powerful 1.2 kW hub motor and a new technology graphene lead-acid battery. When fully charged, this bike will travel 60-70 km. The maximum speed will be 50 km/h. On the other hand, in the Tachyon 1.20 model, the engine of the world’s leading automaker “Bosch” was used. Its portable lithium battery weighs only 9 kg. So it is very portable. The bike can travel a distance of 50-60 km on a single full charge. Its maximum speed is 45 kilometers per hour.
In the future, it is planned to set up fast charging stations in different parts of the country for the fastest battery charging.
The Tachyon e-bike will have a portable charger. This bike can be recharged from the 220 volt power line used in the house. Walton claims that the performance of this bike is equivalent to that of conventional 100cc (displacement) bikes. Both models feature dual hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless tires, LCD speedometer and LED lighting. Free after-sales service for Tachyon e-bikes for up to two years at designated Walton service outlets.
Kaykobad Siddiqui, Product Manager, Takion Electric Bike, said the design of both models is very appealing.
According to Walton, the customer’s electricity cost will only be 7-8 taka to fully charge the Takion e-bike once. Currently, the market price for a liter of octane is 130 Tk, with which a 100 cc bike can travel a maximum distance of 50-60 km. That means gas-powered bikes cost a lot more. Electric vehicles are free from the harmful effects of environmental pollution.
In 2020, the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) issued an Electric Vehicle Registration Policy. Accordingly, Walton believes that there will be no complications or doubts in the registration of Tachyon e-bikes.
Deputy Managing Director of Walton Digi-Tech Industries Limited, Liaquat Ali, said, “Walton is carrying out various activities to establish a green world for future generations as a national company.
