On its launch, Anirudh Ravi Narayan, CEO of Boom Motors said, “The entire team at Boom Motors has worked non-stop and tirelessly over the past two years to bring this product to market in record time.

The base model of the Corbett, with its 2.3 kWh battery, promises a range of 100 km on a full charge, while Corbett 14-EX promises a spectacular 200 km range with a fully charged 4.6 kWh battery. Boom Motors claims both vehicles require less than 3 hours to get fully charged using a fast charger and 4 hours by a standard charger. With a top speed of 75 kmph on the EX and 65 kmph on the base variant, the Corbett can support a load up to 200kg. The storage under the seat comes just short of 30 liters.
Boom Corbett: Performance
With the claim of best durability, the company is offering a 7-year warranty on the chassis and a 5-year warranty on the battery. Giving the scooter and exo-skeletal moped-like look, the Corbett has all its elements integrated into the chassis. Both front and rear tires sport disc brakes with a 4-way dual suspension at both ends. Another highlight of this EV is that batteries in both models are removable and can be charged separately. Some of the additional features include mobile connectivity through an app and also various parental modes. The Boom Corbett electric is also the first scooter in its segment to be providing EMI options, with EMI rates coming down to as low as Rs. 1,699.
