While the pre-booking begins on the first week of December, the deliveries for the Bounce electric scooter will start next year. As for the highlights, Bounce claims that it will offer a first-of-its-kind option in the 'domestic EV space,' in which a prospective buyer will be able to get the e-scooter without the battery at an affordable price tag. Instead, they can opt for Bounce's extensive battery-swapping network to be on the move. The 'Battery as a service' option is expected to make the scooter at least 40 percent affordable against the 'purchase of the battery equipped vehicle.'

Although, customers will have the option of the scooter along with the battery pack like any other electric scooter. This will consist of a smart detachable Li-ion battery, which can be charged as per convenience.

While the company claimed the scooter to be a 'Made in India' product, and about the battery service option, it didn't shed any light on the core aspects of the new Bounce Infinity electric scooter.

The Bangalore-based EV startup has acquired a 100 percent stake in 22Motors, another Indian startup, in a deal that is valued at about US$7 million. As part of the deal, Bounce has acquired 22Motors' manufacturing facility at Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, and intellectual property. The plant has a capacity of manufacturing 1,80,000 scooters per year. The domestic EV maker plans to expand its facility by setting another plant in Southern India. That said, the company has neither any details on the specs nor the price of the new Bounce Infinity, however, if it plans to set an aggressive price to compete with the rivals, then the Bounce scooter might compete against the like of Ola S1.
