Hero Electric, a wing of Hero MotoCorp, has announced the online sale of its new electric scooter Nyx with a price tag of Rs. 29,990 (on-road). The scooter will be available on the online platform, paytm. The official launch of the new Hero Electric Nyx scooter will take place on June 5, which is observed as the World Environment Day.

It is the first time an e-bike company has chosen to launch their product online. The Hero Electric Nyx will be initially launched in 15 cities and will be later made available at other authorised dealerships of the company across the country.

"Hero is registering a significant rise in demand for its e-bikes. Amid growing awareness about sustainability, we have decided to launch the Hero Electric Nyx on World Environment Day to underline the importance of eco-friendly modes of transport. We are eyeing a target of 1,000 units within the first two weeks of launch," said Sohinder Gill, the CEO of Hero Electric.

Offered in two colour variants — white and grey, the Nyx comes with a three-side grab rail, telescopic suspension and rider seat with underseat storage. It comes powered by a 250-Watt motor and claims 70km on full charge. Hero offers two-year warranty and free one-year roadside assistance with Nyx, which covers minor mechanical repairs, towing and removal, and assistance over phone.
