Honda plans to roll out later this year a nice looking electric scooter for businesses and individual business owners who provide mainly delivery services. It is called the EV-neo and it will target riders in the Japanese market.
The Honda EV-neo, said the company, is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and a brushless motor so that it is effectively spewing zero CO2 emissions in use. The rechargeable battery, like so many other electric vehicles, can be charged in a standard household power source. Honda says that this quiet ride will provide performance “equivalent to that of mass-market under-50cc gasoline engine motorcycles realizing a powerful ride even with cargo by leveraging the characteristics of a high-torque motor even at a low speed ride.”
Other aspects of the Honda EV-neo include a range of over 30 km at 30 km/h on a flat road per charge and a charge time of around four hours. There is no word on pricing or what other markets this electric scooter might be offered in.
