Few vehicles come close to the convenience of a gearless scooter, especially on busy urban roads in the country. There is no need to hold on to the clutch or change gears. Just accelerate and cruise through the traffic. Scooters also have decent storage units making them popular among daily commuters. 

But like other automobile segments, the two-wheeler market is also seeing a demand for clean transport. In fact, e-scooter manufacturers have sold more than 3 lakh units from April to October 2022. The latest e-scooter to enter the Indian two-wheeler market is Hero MotoCorp’s Vida V1 Pro. 

If you are looking for a detailed overview of Hero Vida V1 Pro, you are at the right place. Read further to learn about the Vida V1 Pro’s price, range, specs, and more. 

Hero Vida V1 Pro Launch Date and Overview

Hero launched its much-anticipated e-scooter on 7 October 2022. The e-scooter is available in two models: 

  • Vida V1 Plus
  • Vida V1 Pro

The Plus model is the base variant, while the Pro model is the top-end model. 

At the front, the Vida V1 Pro electric scooter gets LED headlamps and LED DDRLs. Similarly, the rear end gets two-LED strips for the taillight, creating an intertwined pattern. The e-scooter resembles any contemporary petrol scooter, but design elements, curves, edges, accents and an exposed handlebar give it a distinct e-scooter look.

Hero MotoCorp has gone with a pastel colour scheme that compliments the design of the e-scooters really well. The e-scooter is available in three colours:

  • Matte White
  • Matte Sports Red
  • Matte Abrax Orange

The two variants are very similar and have the same body, design, colours and features. But, the Hero Vida V1 Pro gets a bigger battery and slightly faster acceleration than the base model, making it the better version for many riders. 

Hero Vida V1 Pro Price

Hero has priced its e-scooter competitively, offering the Vida V1 Pro at Rs 1.59 lakhs (ex-showroom). While the base model, i.e., The V1 Plus, is priced at Rs 1.45 lakhs. See the table below for detailed pricing.
