Midway through 2023, Honda intends to make its all-new EM1-e electric scooter debut in Europe. The manufacturer wants to be carbon neutral by 2040, therefore one of its goals is to produce 10 or more electric two-wheelers worldwide by 2025.
“EM” refers for Electric Moped in the name. The two-wheeler has a scooter-like shape that makes mounting and dismounting in work attire straightforward. It also has a small wheelbase. For quick trips inside cities, the EM1-e will be perfect.
With just one Honda Mobile Power Pack (MPP) battery, the scooter will have a 40-km range. It will feature interchangeable batteries that can be charged using household power. Upon launch, the business will disclose the EM1-e’s official specifications and features.
In September, the corporation disclosed the information during a briefing on its motorbike business plan. These motorcycles will be introduced in China, Asia, Europe, and Japan. Electric scooters, commuter bikes, street bikes, crossover bikes, and cruiser bikes are among the available options.
Electric Bicycles (EB), Electric Mopeds (EM), and Electric Vehicles are the three categories into which Honda has split the bikes (EV). A vehicle classified as EB must have a top speed of 25 km/h or below. An EV is defined as a vehicle having a top speed of over 50 km/h, whereas an EM will have a top speed of 50 km/h or less.
