BGauss Electric A2

The BGauss electric A2 has 2 variants. One is a lead-acid battery type and the other one uses a lithium-ion battery. The lead-acid battery is cheaper to manufacture and the parts used are low cost. This allows the scooter to be priced very low. We can’t overlook the fact that lead-acid battery does require some regular maintenance.

A2 Lead-acidRs 52,499
A2 Lithium-IonRs 67,999

The motor on the A2 is a 250W motor. This gives it a top speed of about 25 km/h which is a bit less. Therefore this scooter does not make for a good road companion. What might be good for commercial use like delivering food and in the vicinity. Also, the lead-acid battery takes around 7-8 hr for charging and that is a big bummer. The lithium-ion, on the other hand, takes only 2 – 3 hr.

There is no information about the range on the A2 model.
