The EM1 is driven by the Honda Mobile Power Pack e, which boasts a 40km of range on a single charge.
Honda revealed the EM1 electric scooter at the 2022 EICMA show in Milan, Italy, as part of its plan to launch more than 10 electric two-wheelers internationally by 2025. Interestingly, this also marks the automaker's entry into the electric two-wheeler segment of the European market.
The EM1 is driven by the Honda Mobile Power Pack e, which offers a 40km of range on a single charge. This power pack, according to Honda, is made to withstand 'different temperatures, humidity levels, impacts, and vibrations.' The battery pack is furthermore detachable, offering the customer the convenience of charging it at home.
As stated in the company's official statement, the term 'EM' stands for Electric Moped. The EM1 is targeted towards young buyers looking for a compact, lightweight, and simple-to-ride urban runabout. The scooter seems much simpler than other contemporary robotic-looking electric scooters, thanks to its boxy and angular design lines. With a big footboard, an evidently spacious seat, and a rear carrier, it seems to be more about utility than appearance.
The EM1 will most definitely be available only in overseas markets. Moreover, Honda is also likely to launch electric two-wheelers in India; however, they may be custom-built for our market.
