We have also received images and details of the removable lithium-ion battery pack that the Mark 2 will use. The cuboid-shaped battery pack has a metal outer case with a design machined into it and a handle at the top.It has a battery capacity of 4.8kWh, which is almost double that of Ather 450X’s (2.61kWh), and more than double that of TVS iQube’s (2.25kWh). This is one of the reasons why Simple Energy is able to claim a range of 240km in Eco mode.
