The Bounce Infinity E1 comes in five colour options: sporty red, sparkle black, pearl white, silver and comed grey. Pre-bookings start today, with deliveries slated for March 2022 through its dealership network and its online platform, for seamless deliveries across India.

Customers pay for battery swaps, whenever they swap an empty battery with a fully-charged one from Bounce's extensive swapping network.

The Bounce Infinity E1 will also be offered with the battery, which can be removed from the scooter and charged by customers at their home or office or wherever convenient.

The firm is setting up a wide battery-swapping network through prominent partnerships, which will serve both its retail customers and its successful ride-sharing business. (IANS/PR)

Bopanna and Hima Kohli to list the petition urgently, against the backdrop of the ongoing election process.
