Honda is a well-respected brand, and it’s good to see them entering the electric scooter market in India. The two scooters sound like they will be very different, which is good for consumers. The sporty scooter will appeal to those who want a fun and stylish ride, while the family-oriented scooter will be perfect for those who need a practical and reliable scooter.
We are particularly interested in the motor capacity and battery range. I want Honda to offer a range of options to suit different needs. For example, some people might wish for a scooter with a long range for commuting, while others might be happy with a shorter range for short trips around town.
We are also looking forward to seeing the feature list, and Honda will include some of the latest technology, such as full-LED lighting, a
Bluetooth-enabled colour-TFT display and a combined braking system.
We are very excited about the upcoming Honda electric scooters. They sound like they will be great options for Indian consumers.
Honda has not released official information about its upcoming electric scooters’ motor capacity, battery range, or charging time.
However, we can make educated guesses based on the specifications of other electric scooters.
- The Hero Vida V1 has a 3.9 kW battery and a claimed range of 165 km/charge.
- The Ather 450 has a 3.3 kW battery and a claimed range of 146 km/charge
- The Ola S1 has a 5.5 kw battery and a claimed range of 128 km/charge
Based on these figures, we can expect the Honda electric scooters to have similar specifications. They will likely have a motor capacity of 250-350W, a battery capacity of 2.5-3.5kWh, and a claimed range of 80-120 kilometres on a single charge.
Honda may also offer multiple variants of its electric scooters with different battery capacities and charging times. This would allow customers to choose the variant that best suits their needs.
For example, a customer who needs to travel long distances regularly might choose a variant with a larger battery capacity and a longer charging time. Customers who only need to travel short distances regularly might select a variant with a smaller battery capacity and faster charging time.
Ultimately, we will have to wait for Honda to release more information about its upcoming electric scooters before we know what they will offer. However, based on the currently available information, we expect them to be competitive with other electric scooters.
Here are some additional expected details about the two upcoming Honda electric scooters:
- Sporty scooter: This scooter is expected to have a motor capacity of 1.2 kW and a battery range of 80-100 kilometres. It will likely be available in two variants, one with a swappable battery and one with a fixed one.
- Family-oriented scooter: This is expected to have a motor capacity of 0.8 kW and a battery range of 50-70 kilometres. It will likely be available in one variant with a fixed battery.
Both scooters are expected to be priced competitively. Honda is targeting a market share of 10% in the Indian electric scooter market by 2025.
