As Hero Dash falls in the Low-Speed series, buyers will have to compromise on the speed front. The engine is not punchy like the standard petrol in-lined two-wheelers and it can return top speed of just 25 kmph. Hero Electric claims that as compared to the standard internal combustion engines, the ER range of scooters (Optima and Nyx) can save more than 1 lakh rupees in two years.
Buyers of Hero Electric customers will not have to worry about the servicing and after-sales part, as the company plans to have more than 1,000 customer touchpoints by 2020. Currently, Hero Electric has its 615 consumer touchpoints all across India. For the tier-II and tier-III cities, Hero Dash is going to be a great option in the EV category.
