After presenting the NEO electric scooter in the European market, Yamaha has officially introduced the E01 electric scooter which has a look similar to the NMax scooter but with a more futuristic design line.
Yamaha Global in a press release on the company’s website on Friday stated that the Yamaha E01 will not be mass-produced, but will only be tested in various countries, including Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia starting July 2022.
The plan is that the E01 will feature Yamaha’s own designed vehicle battery, separate from the battery consortium deals that several motorcycle manufacturers have entered into at the end of 2021.
The Yamaha E01 has 8.1kW of power and 30nm of torque, and has a range of 104 kilometers (64.6 miles) on a single charge.
Yamaha E01 features three different charging systems: fast charger, normal charger and portable charger. A portable charger will be included with every E01.
Fast charging takes an hour to charge from zero to 90 percent. Fast charging can be installed in the office or at a motorcycle dealer.
For a normal charger from zero to 100 percent takes five hours, and will be aimed at home users. The portable charger that comes with every E01 is tucked under the seat—but it takes 14 hours to go from zero to 100 percent.
