Bgauss RUV 350: Launch, Pricing, and Range

BGauss has recently introduced the RUV 350, an electric scooter equipped with 16-inch wheels, in the market. This sleek and stylish scooter is available in three variants – RUV 350i EX, RUV 350 EX, and RUV 350 Max, with prices ranging from Rs 1.10 lakh to Rs 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Max variant of the RUV 350 boasts a commendable real-world range of 120km in Eco mode, powered by a 3kWh LFP battery. On the other hand, the other two variants offer a 90km range with a 2.3kWh battery. All three variants are equipped with the same ‘InWheel Hyperdrive’ motor, which ensures a top speed of 75kph.

When it comes to features, the RUV 350i EX offers a segmented LCD display without Bluetooth, while the EX and Max variants come with a 5-inch color TFT display that includes notification alerts and navigation prompts. However, the base variant misses out on additional features such as cruise control, hill hold, fall-safe mechanism, and over-the-air (OTA) updates.

One standout feature of the RUV 350 is its use of large 16-inch wheels, contributing to a smooth and comfortable ride similar to step-through scooters commonly seen in South-East Asian countries. However, its braking performance may leave something to be desired, as the scooter is equipped with 130mm drum brakes at both ends.

With a competitive pricing ranging between Rs 1.10 lakh and Rs 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom), the RUV 350 aims to attract customers looking for a unique and capable electric scooter. It competes in the same segment as popular electric scooters like the Ather Rizta, TVS iQube, and Bajaj Chetak, offering a distinct alternative for those seeking something different in the electric vehicle market.
