Going from 0-40 kilometers per hour in just 2.95 seconds and traveling 236 kilometers within a single charge, the Simple One electric scooter delivers comparable performance to conventional gasoline-powered scooters. It’s been developed by Indian startup Simple Energy, which set out to disrupt the electric vehicle market with a luxury, yet affordable two-wheel scooter aimed at students and professionals in small to medium-sized cities in India.

To keep costs down, Simple Energy designed and developed the Simple One completely in-house, including the electric motor and battery pack, and supporting charging infrastructure.

So far, the Simple One’s performance is unmatched by any other e-scooter on the local market. It is also designed to be quick and easy to charge. Home charging takes 2.75 hours while the portable battery can be charged in 75 minutes.

As the electric vehicle market continues to boom, Simple Energy has moved fast to bring its innovative scooter to market as quickly as possible. To do that, it required a technology platform that could support all its design and development processes, allowing it to create and build a scooter from the ground up in record time.

Simple Energy chose the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud. Every facet of its Simple One scooter was designed and tested on the platform.

“By 2030, almost all vehicles in India will be electric and the government is pushing for this to happen,” said Suhas Rajkumar, founder and CEO of Simple Energy. “We wanted to get ahead of the competition and realized we needed to accelerate our product development. That’s where the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has come in.”
