The price of the Indie electric scooter has increased by ₹ 13,000

The River Indie, initially priced at ₹1.25 lakh when it debuted in February 2023 in Bengaluru, now costs ₹1,38,000, marking a ₹13,000 rise in price. The company had already hinted that the price revision was in store for the second batch of customers and the premium does seem rather steep for a less techy, more utilitarian e-scooter.
