The Honda EM1 e all-electric scooter will contribute to the Japanese company’s expansion into electric mobility and will be the first of ten total electric two-wheelers to be introduced in the coming years.
According to the official announcement, the commercial availability of EM1 e will start in the Old Continent next summer 2023. The name EM comes from the words “Electric Moped”, and with this model the Japanese want to offer an affordable solution to young – and not only – riders moving in urban centers.
Without mentioning the other technical characteristics of its new electric scooter, Honda talks about a range of more than 40 kilometers on a single charge, while mentioning that the interchangeable batteries it has developed demonstrate great resistance to different operating conditions and intensity of use.
The humble specifications testify to Honda’s intention to keep the cost of the first electric scooter available on the European market low, thereby ensuring its commercial success.
The small dimensions of the electric scooter contribute to its ease of use as do the interchangeable battery that powers its small electric motor. Its special features include the flat floor that allows the loading of objects and the small storage space under the saddle, which, however, is not enough to accommodate even an open-type helmet.
As the time approaches for the official debut in the European market, more technical data are expected to become known.
