Hero Electric, which occupies the No. 1 position in the country’s electric two wheeler segment, is soon going to upgrade its Optima CX. This claim has been made through a brochure leak. It is said that two electric scooters will be launched in the Optima CX series. One of these will be the Optima CX, while the other will be the CX ER. The big difference between them will be the battery pack. The Optima CX will be packed with a single battery unit, while the CX ER will be packed with a dual battery.
