Here are a few tips to get the best performance out of your TVS iQube.

  • Do not hold brakes while riding. Though it is a common practice among scooter riders to hold the rear brakes ever so slightly while riding, it should be avoided as it reduces the life of your brakes and burns extra energy in the process, thus reducing your efficiency.
  • Avoid overloading your scooter. The more weight you carry the more energy is used.
  • Rapid acceleration and riding at high speeds also use up your battery faster.
  • Maintain the recommended tyre pressure and check frequently. If they are under-inflated, their rolling resistance increases. As a result, more energy is wasted to move your scooter.
It takes approximately 6 hours to charge the TVS iQube from 0 to 100%, and 0 to 80 % in less than 4 hours 30 min with the on-board charger.

It takes around 2.5kWh of electricity to fully charge the TVS iQube. This is equivalent to 2.5 units of electricity.

Assuming the cost of electricity to be Rs.7, it would cost you just Rs.17.50 for charging your TVS iQube from 0% to 100%.

Fast charging impacts the lifespan of Li-ion batteries and as of now TVS iQube does not support fast charging. We are continuously working on fast charging technology which has least impact on battery life and would bring it to market at the earliest.
TVSM will install a SMARTXHOME vehicle charging device (if possible as per feasible study). This device comes with authenticated access through RFID and IQUBE App, critical safety features, and smart features such as auto resume, auto cut off in case of unintended use/ full charge etc. The current pricing of this device along with standard installation services is ₹ 10 000. Prices are exclusive of GST (18%).
The SMARTXHOME charging unit should be preferably installed at the place where you would be parking your vehicle. The SMARTXHOME is designed with an IP 55 rating against dust and water entry. It can be installed at any wall of your choice. We would recommend you to select a location which is free from obstruction, out of reach of children and nearest to your energy meter. However you are free to indicate a suitable alternate as per your convenience.

After you book your TVS iQube with SMARTXHOME, a customer relationship manager will be in touch with you to facilitate a home survey to assess the feasibility to install SMARTXHOME. The survey will be done by a TVSM appointed survey and installation team. The feasibility study will primarily look into the following apart from other things –

  • Whether you have a dedicated parking area for your vehicle
  • Whether you have permission (if applicable) from your landlord, RWA or other housing association to install the smart home charging socket
  • Whether your home/apartment needs power augmentation to take extra load. Although the extra electricity load would be a nominal 500W (less than your geyser, air conditioner etc)
  • Whether a proper earthing is there at your home / apartment
  • Whether your distribution board has provision for a spare MCB for installing SMARTXHOME

The team will guide you to obtain necessary permissions and will provide you exact details about the work & the estimate to install SMARTXHOME. In case it's not feasible to install SMARTXHOME, we will work with you on exploring alternatives on a case by case basis.
