TVS iQube ST Delivery Status

The company is not giving any particular date when they are going to start the deliveries for ST.

But according to the rumors and competition in the market, TVS has to launch its electric scooter quickly to avoid a negative impact on market sales. Plus Hero motors has also announced their electric scooter line “VIDA” which has the potential to give a head-to-head challenge to TVS as both the brands are made in India and have great customer reach and trust which they have gained over the years.
