Simple Energy One Review 2022


Simple Energy One Review 2022 – My Attitude My Bike : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Bike” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “Simple Energy OneReview 2022”.

The Simple Energy appears to have become the norm that new-age EVs coming from two-wheeler start-ups are far from ready when launched. Bengaluru-based Simple Energy ‘launched’ its One electric scooter in August 2021, but at the time the scooter was actually very much in the prototype stage. Almost a full year later, we’re finally getting to ride this hotly anticipated electric scooter.

As it turns out, the company only let us ride its scooter on a very short loop within a gated housing society outside Bengaluru. That means we’ll only be able to share a first impression of this scooter for now and a detailed road test will only be possible when Simple lets us ride its scooter on public roads. In a way, that’s a good thing, because the scooters we experienced still do not come across as fully finished products. But, there is some good news, because the fundamentals on the Simple One in terms of motor and chassis do seem to be in a good place.

Highlights of Simple Energy One

The electric scooter segment is heating up with the launch of two new e-scooters, ‘one’ being the Simple Energy One scooter. The One goes against the Ola electric scooter, Ather 450X, and Bajaj Chetak in the Indian market. The scooter is powered by a 4.5kWh battery pack, making 72Nm and a 0-40kmph time of 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 98kmph. The One is available with four driving modes- Eco, Ride, Dash, and Sonic.

In terms of features, the Simple Energy One gets a 7″ touchscreen with OTA updates, navigation and music control, and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to name a few. The scooter is capable of fast charging at the rate of 2.5km per minute, with a range of 236km.

Simple Energy One Review 2022 : Impressive Looks

Now first of all, it should be said that although it’s been a year since the covers were first pulled off the Simple One, It’s still in the prototyping phase, which is in a way disappointing. So there are still some ill-fit plastics and some placeholders on the dash. Stuff like quality of the fit and finish of its panels and also some software will improve by the time this scooter hits the streets – sometime this September, according to Simple Energy. So what’s the company been up to since last august you ask? They say that they’ve been tweaking the scooter and even streamlining the entire production process.

On the design front, although from afar, it might resemble the scooter that we saw last year but some a bit closer and you will see the changes that Simple Energy have made over the course of time. Starting from the front you still have the mean aggressive look about it. It looks sporty, very modern and attractive. It sports a new headlight design, those small LED DRLs on the handlebar faring also look very cool. The design of the winglets which have the LED indicators integrated are tweaked and look a lot better than before. Then you have a bigger mudguard setup up front, compared to the scooter we saw last year.

The tyres well, the scooter that we saw last year sported TVS tyres, whereas this one has MRF treads at both ends. Brakes are discs at both ends – Bybre brakes where you have a 200mm disc at the font and a 190mm disc at the rear. Telescopic front suspension and a monoshock suspension at the rear. Moving further back, you have a different design seat. Now this is not the seat that you’re going to see on the production scooter. Simple say that they’re still working on the design – the shape of the seat – as well as the softness of it all. It should be a lot more firm that what we see on the scooter currently. Coming to the rear of the scooter we see a new taillight unit that’s designed a lot more aggressive than the unit that we saw last year. And the biggest change – the drive. The scooter that we saw last year came with a chain drive while the scooter now comes with a more conventional belt drive.

You also get a 7-inch high-res screen that’s pretty snappy to use, but once again, lots of place holders on this test unit. And the procedure to set the scooter into reverse is a bit too simple. But the readout would appear well thought out and it feels up with the times if anything.

Simple Energy One Review 2022 : Performance

Simple Energy claims that this will be the fastest electric scooter when it goes on sale, and the specifications certainly back that up. The in-house developed motor produces similar power figures to the Ola S1 Pro (4.5kW continuous/8.5kW peak), but it’s the 72Nm torque figure that is unrivalled in the e-scooter space. The company claims a segment leading 0-40kph acceleration time of 2.77s and a top speed of 105kph.

Those figures are impressive, but what stood out to me is that the accelerator response in all four of the riding modes is smooth, predictable and easy to use. That being said, the top two modes did display a slight overrun where the scooter continues to accelerate for a fraction of a second after you close the accelerator. To their credit, a well-tuned accelerator response is something many EVs seem to struggle with and the Simple One is already much better than most EVs we have tried. The company says that this will be fully fixed by the time the scooters go into production.

Even in the limited space that we had to ride, the scooter quite easily crossed an indicated 80kph in its top Sonic mode. The overall performance feels just as quick as an Ola S1 Pro in hyper mode, which means that this should be up there with the fastest scooters in the country. But the Simple One’s real trump card is its range.

Simple Energy One Review 2022 : Powertrain & Range

The Simple One is equipped with a 7kW permanent magnet synchronous motor that is tuned to belt out 72Nm of peak torque. The motor can push the electric scooter from standstill to 40kmph in 3.05 seconds (claimed). Depending on the tyre size, the top speed is either 98kmph or 105kmph (claimed). There are four riding modes — Eco, Ride, Dash and Sonic.

The One electric scooter is based on a tubular steel chassis with telescopic suspension at the front and symmetrically mounted progressive monoshock at the rear. It gets 12-inch alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres. There is a disc each at the front (200mm) and rear (190mm). Also available are combi-braking and regenerative braking systems.

Simple Energy claims that it has developed the powertrain and braking systems of the One electric scooter in-house and patented them.

The Simple One’s motor is paired with a 4.8kWh lithium-ion battery. The battery pack is removable and weighs 7kg. According to IDC (Indian Drive Cycle), the electric scooter’s range is 236km. As per the test conducted by Simple Energy, it is 203km.

The battery can be charged from 0-80 per cent at home using a 15A socket in 2.45 hours. Fast charging can juice up the battery for 2.5km in a minute. Simple Energy recently introduced the Simple Loop charging network for public charging as well as home charging. It aims to launch more than 300 charging stations in the next seven months across 13 states.

Simple Energy One Review 2022 : Riding & Comfort

So the performance is strong and Simple promises market-leading levels of range. Another thing that comes across as quite impressive in most areas is the chassis. This tubular steel chassis is also an in-house design by Simple and the company has done a good job in the suspension and braking departments. The brakes are powerful, but easy to modulate, although we did notice quite a bit of chassis flex at the steering headstock under hard braking. The company says that this will be fixed by the time the scooters go into production.

That issue aside, the scooter handled quite well around corners and it manages to do so while also coming across as rather comfortable in the suspension department. The scooter currently wears 90 section tyres at both ends and the company says that the promised variant with fatter tyres will only be offered at a later stage. As for the suspension, there were no bad roads for us to properly test it, but it’s clear that Simple has gone for a nice, plush set-up. In fact, the softly sprung suspension reminds me of the TVS Ntorq 125, and that’s a good thing because the TVS manages to be very comfortable while also being sporty and really fun to ride. The Simple One seems to be able to pull off that same trick.

Our Opinion

There’s also the fact that this completely new company has to prove that it can smoothly and consistently scale up its manufacturing process, especially since it claims to be sitting on over 60,000 bookings. That in itself can be a gargantuan mountain to climb, even before the world plunged into an unprecedented supply crisis — just ask Ather Energy.
