In an industry first achievement, 22Motors have obtained a worldwide patent for their invention – Hill assist feature for two-wheelers. The patent was filed on 7th February 2019 and was granted on 9th May 2019. The Hill assist feature provides a composed and a safe journey across varied terrain, especially when going uphill.
When on an incline, the Hill assist feature automatically engages and prevents the two-wheeler from rolling backward. The system also gives the rider, a few seconds to accelerate forward. It also prevents the two-wheeler from rolling backward in bumper-to-bumper traffic, a boon in urban commuting.
Mr. Parveen Kharb, CEO and Co-founder – 22Motors said, “We often underestimate the dangers of riding uphill and while most four-wheelers are complete with safety features like hill start assist, we firmly believe that everyone has an equal right to safety. We felt the need to engineer similar technology for two-wheelers and we are thrilled that our commitment to deliver the best to our consumers has been recognized in the form of this patent. At 22Motors, rider safety is integral to our business and our products speak for our philosophy. This invention is yet another step in our journey to make premium products that are futuristic, powerful and practical.
Other features in The Flow
The Hill assist feature is just one of the many that set 22Motors apart. Their upcoming model – The Flow – has three modes: Reverse mode, Cruise mode, and Drag mode. With the reverse mode, the hassle of backing up from the parking and elsewhere is saved. The drag mode available on the scooter allows riders to continue riding the scooter during a breakdown at 3 Kmph, which is the average walking speed, eliminating the need to drag the scooter.
The scooter is touted to have a top speed of 60 Kmph and a range of 160 Km with dual batteries. The battery can be charged in 4-5 hours or by using fast charge to 70% in one hour. The scooter features GPS & GPRS for tracking and theft prevention. You also have Bluetooth connectivity and a dedicated Smartphone app that provides the rider with a host of information.
