Auto Expo 2018: The TVS Creon concept scooter uses electricity to out-accelerate most sports cars

Apart from revealing two concept bikes at Auto Expo 2018, TVS Motor Company has unveiled an electric scooter concept which has managed to grab a lot of eyeballs at the event. The TVS Creon is claimed by the company to be a 'performance-oriented' electric scooter concept with blistering numbers.

The Creon is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 kph in 5.1 seconds, which is close to what most supercars are capable of. The fully-electric concept scooter has a range of 80 km and takes just an hours worth of charging to fill the battery up to 80 percent.

According to a report by Overdrive, the TVS Creon looks and feels every bit a racing-oriented scooter, especially with an exposed silver-finish frame running through the middle of the scooter. The scooter's name is also seen lettered on the side to bring forth its racing DNA. The single seat is tapered towards the tail, making it look more like a sports bike rather than an electric scooter.

The scooter is powered by three lithium-ion batteries which combine to produce up to 12 kW of power. The Creon is also packed to the gills with features. It comes with a TFT screen which works together with an application on the user's smartphone, displaying all the essentials. TVS goes on to state that there are a host of features, including cloud connectivity, three different riding modes, regenerative braking capabilities, park assist, anti-theft features, GPS navigation and geo-fencing.

To top it all off, the Creon also gets disc brakes one each on the front and at the back with ABS included at the front. It also comes with space for storing a helmet and a charging slot for smartphones. The company, however, has not revealed anything about a production variant of the scooter or any pricing details of the scooter yet.
