AutoExpo2023 saw the launch of the world’s first self-balancing scooter. Mumbai-based Liger Mobility has unveiled the Liger X with an “auto-balancing” tech. The Mumbai-based start-up had previously teased the self-balancing and self-parking technology-enabled electric scooter in 2019, which was a prototype for pre-production.
Liger X showcases a retro design with some new-age technologies and cutting-edge features. At first glance, the design looks similar to that of Vespa. Talking about the physical features, the scooter sports a sleek horizontal LED daytime running light (DRL) at the top and a delta-shaped LED headlamp at the front apron. The front cowl houses the round-shaped LED turn indicators. It also has beefy rubber-wrapped alloy wheels. The Liger Mobility auto-balancing e-scooter comes with a wide, comfortable seat. This scooter is also available in a variety of colors.
Now comes the “auto-balancing” part. The technology allows the electric scooter to balance itself at low speeds or even while stationary. And as the two-wheeler goes stable at higher speeds, the system goes into standby then. The e-scooter has an option to manually activate the system as per their comfort. The Liger X scooters come with a range of up to 60 km on a single charge, with a top speed of 65 km/ph.
Liger Mobility claims that the technology in this electric scooter was developed in-house in India. The company argues ‘auto-balancing’ feature will significantly increase electric scooter riders’ safety and also provide them comfort and convenience more than any other traditional scooter. The e-scooter also comes with a feature that allows you to access it with your voice commands. The company has not provided much information about this specific feature.
