    Honda recently promised that it had major plans for an electrified future, including 10 new electrified models by 2025. The first of those Honda electric bikes has just been unveiled at EICMA 2022 in the form of the Honda EM1 e, where the EM stands for Electric Moped.

    • Electric scooter targeted at a young demographic
    • Comes with hub-mounted motor

    Details are quite scarce, but the brand has stated that this scooter will come with a Honda Mobile Power Pack, which essentially means that this scooter will get a removable battery. Honda hasn’t revealed any details regarding the capacity of this battery, but states that it will provide "over 40km" on a single charge. A short video released by the company shows an indicated range of 59km with the battery at 92 percent state of charge.

    While the company has also not released any information on the powertrain, the images show that the Honda EM1 e uses a hub-mounted motor in what appears to be a 10-inch rear wheel. The electric scooter gets a large luggage rack at the rear, a 12-inch front wheel, a front disc brake and a telescopic front fork. The lighting is all-LED and the instrument console is a simple LCD unit.

    Honda says that this scooter is targeted at a young demographic looking for easy, fun urban transport over short distances. This electric scooter will go on sale in Europe in the summer of 2023 but there is no clarity at the moment on whether it will be launched in India.
