TVS Creon Electric Scooter will be launched on January 25th 2020
TVS will be revealing its leading TVS electric scooter in India on January 25. The scooter is looking very conventional which has been foreseen to adopt some samples from Jupiter.
TVS is busy in January as their brands are ready to launch. The company will be revealing the BS6 Apache RTR 160 in India on January 30. They have also revealed the BS6 Star City Plus on their website. Apart from these, the company has uploaded a short video about the forthcoming electrical motorbike. It’s one of the brand’s first-ever. And it will be demonstrated in India on January 25. The video does not tell much about the forthcoming Electric scooter, as the TVS company likes to give a surprise to the people.
Previously TVS has shown off an electric scooter concept called the Creon at the Auto Expo 2018. Still, from the observations in the teaser, this E- the scooter is unquestionably not the Creon as it does not seem anywhere as advanced as the Creon concept.
The electric scooter in the teaser looks to be a higher conventional-looking scooter. TVS were spotted testing an electric scooter many years ago and we know it is going to be that model only. The forthcoming design will be a full-size TVS scooter, apparent from its large overall dimensions in our detective shots. This new electric-scooter is supposed to bestow a number of parts with the TVS Jupiter. It will arrive with a vast but advanced seat. The scooter is also supposed to be furnished with a new monoshock suspension for the back and drum brakes.
From spy photographs noticed before, the electric scooter will have a roomy flat floorboard, flush-fitted turn indicators, and convenient bag warehouse hooks. It is also awaited to come with added elements like alloy wheels with tubeless tires as a pennant. The batteries will most probably be located under the seats.
The scooter has the qualities of a race scooter and is packed with the newest technologies such as a TFT screen that unites with a smartphone for access to multiple scooter apps and showcases essential information like battery and speed level. The scooter is combined with a service cloud, as it presents three driving modes. It has a parking assistant, regenerative braking, Geo-fencing, GPS navigation, and anti-theft security systems
It would be interesting to recognize how TVS fixes the price of this electric scooter and whether it underprices the likes of the Bajaj Chetak and the Ather 450. Given the plain layout and mechanical in the spy shots, we could also pretend that this would be the entry-level electric scooter of the company offering to undercut the aforementioned Electric scooters, with the Creon, will be a candid competitor in the future.

Ex-Chairman of Nissan, Carlos Ghosn’s Musical Escape From Japan
Carlos Ghosn, the ex-chairman of Nissan, is said to have fled to Lebanon in a musical instrument box trying to escape a trial in Japan. According to Ghosn, he has done so to escape from “injustice and political persecution.”
Ghosn was under house arrest and charged with financial misconduct in Japan which he managed to avoid by fleeing the country in a private jet and reaching the Middle East. According to the Lebanese news channel MTV, his wife is claimed to have helped and plan the escape which was supposedly carried out by some sort of “paramilitary-style group.”
The channel reported that the members had disguised themselves as musicians who were supposed to give a musical performance for a Gregorian style dinner at Ghosn’s place in Japan. Ghosn is later said to have escaped by hiding in a case or a box that was supposed to be carrying out musical instruments and reached the airport nearby to leave Japan.
The ex-car manufacturing boss has denied all the accusations and claimed that Japan has the system “rigged.” He was kept under surveillance as he was out on bail and even surrendered his passports.
As Japan has no extradition treaty with Lebanon it has left the authorities uncertain about the further procedure to seek his return. Prosecutors along with Ghosn’s defence team were shocked and unaware of this till he reached Lebanon. Ghosn’s defence lawyer Junichiro Hironaka considers his client’s behaviour condemnable and inexcusable.
The millionaire has been accused of leading the firm while understating his salary, diverting Nissan’s money to himself and transferring his financial losses to his employer. He has even accused his ex-colleagues of backstabbing and a conspiracy against him in a video earlier this year. He even insisted that he was innocent and alleged that some selfish executives played a very nasty game.
He was arrested in November 2018 where he was supposed to face trial in the coming April of 2020. If found guilty he would have had to do a 15 year jail time.
New Hyundai Venue Price 2019, Specifications, Mileage & Review
HYUNDAI STEPS INTO THE COMPACT SUV WORLD. We had Ford Ecosport, Tata Nexon, Suzuki Brezza, Mahindra XUV 300 but there was one name missing. Now, Hyundai is finally here with its new compact SUV that sure looks promising. The all-new Hyundai Venue.
This is the first connected car of the country. It starts with a base price of 6.5 lakhs but comes loaded with features and the base variant also has 6 airbags, ABS and a rear parking sensor. The cabin quality is good and the switches are also of good quality plastic. Top end variant of the car has a sunroof and a wireless charger too. It has an 8-inch touch screen which has an app called BLUE LINK which enables you to start, lock, unlock, turns the ac on for you, sends an SOS signal to the nearest ambulance if the car gets in an accident. It also has theft protection so that you know if someone is messing with your car. Seats on this car are as good as Creta and has good support for under thigh and also has the Hyundai feel-good factor to it. The backseat is wider but the knee room is tighter than the competition. It has good headroom though. It also gets the rear AC vents. For a compact SUV, the boot space of 350 liters is quite impressive.
For an analogy, Creta has 400 liters. It comes in three engine option. A 1.2 ltr petrol, 1.4 ltr diesel, and the new 1.0 ltr turbocharged engine with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. This is the most powerful engine in this price range. Power output is same as Brezza but has more torque delivery. All three engines have good refinement. The steering feels accurate, quick and thus makes driving easy. The suspension is stiffened up nicely. This car does not have the fun to ride Ecosport feel but the grip is adequate.
