The TVS X is rooted in a “rider-first” philosophy. It has been meticulously developed from the ground up to challenge conventions, engineered to offer riders a telepathic level of handling. Every aspect, from vehicle dynamics, control software, powertrain, the aluminum frame, new operating system, to the robust software architecture, has been built in-house by dedicated design, engineering, and software teams.
The TVS Xleton frame delivers over 2 times the torsional stiffness and more than 4 times the vertical stiffness compared to industry standards, ensuring exceptional agility and unparalleled steering precision. A thoughtfully placed battery unit complements it, managing the center of gravity to provide exceptional dynamics that amplify the rider’s sense of control. Uniquely formulated tire compounds for the TVS X enhance grip levels while minimizing rolling resistance.
With a peak power of 11kW, the TVS X holds the distinction of being the most powerful EV in its segment, boasting class-leading acceleration of 0-40 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and a sustained maximum speed of 105 km/h. This thrilling performance is made possible by the PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) motor, supported by an integrated in-house-developed controller from TVS Motor.
