2024 Bajaj Chetak Urbane launched: Bajaj Auto recently launched the 2024 Chetak Urbane, giving their first electric scooter a makeover for the new year. The standard version is priced at ₹1.15 lakh, while the fancier ‘Tecpac’ variant will cost you ₹1.21 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). This new Chetak Urbane joins the lineup with the Premium variant.
In terms of looks, the 2024 Bajaj Chetak Urbane sticks to the same design as the older model but brings some upgrades under the hood. Now, this electric scooter claims a range of 113 km on a single charge, up from the previous 108 km. It’s worth noting that the 113 km range is officially certified, while the earlier 108 km claim was more of a real-world estimate (IDC rating – 126 km). Both versions use the same 2.9 kWh battery pack.

As for features, the new Bajaj Chetak Urbane sports the same LCD console as the Premium variant. The Standard trim has a top speed of 63 kmph and only offers the ‘Eco’ ride mode with limited app connectivity.
On the other hand, the Tecpac adds more features, including a Sports mode, a higher top speed of 73 kmph, reverse mode, Hill Hold, and full connectivity through a smartphone app. Drum brakes at both ends come standard on the Chetak Urbane.

The Urbane variant comes with an off-board 650-watt charger, while the Premium variant boasts an 800-watt onboard charger. This change means a longer charging time of 4 hours and 50 minutes compared to the Premium variant’s 3 hours and 50 minutes.
The new Bajaj Chetak Urbane is notably more affordable, bringing a mix of improvements and cost savings. We can expect Bajaj to update the Chetak Premium soon to match the Urbane’s enhancements. In the market, the Bajaj Chetak e-scooter competes with others like the Ather 450S, Ola S1 Air, TVS iQube, and similar models.
