As we all know many manufacturers are in a race to develop Two wheels and now Yamaha is also trying to introduce its new brand two-wheeler into the Ev market, Yamaha is well-known for all in petrol 2 wheeler here if we look into the EV space there are few major two-wheeler Ev’s like Bajaj, TVS, Ola and few more.
And recently Yamaha India showcased its NEO and E01 electric scooters at a dealers’ meeting which indicates that the Japanese manufacturer might soon launch these two electric scooters in the Indian market. Two-wheelers, as opposed to four-wheelers, have made a comparatively swift transition to electric vehicles in the Indian automobile sector.
Yamaha’s choice to join the two-wheeler electric vehicle market in India is reasonable as it will from its well-known brand image since the only other major two-wheeler manufacturers having an EV are Bajaj and TVs.
Yamaha is coming up with a range of 68 km due to two interchangeable battery packs on the bike scooter (50.4 V, 19.2 Ah Li-ion batteries). Additionally, the scooter is equipped with several high-end technologies such as smart key integration and a completely digital LCD instrument console that is compatible with smartphones. Along with it, it has LED headlamps, telescopic front forks, mono-shock rear suspension, and storage space beneath the seat of 27 liters.
Maxi-style concept scooter Yamaha E01 has a stated range of over 100 kilometres. Everything from all-LED lights to a touchscreen display with smartphone connection and an in-built SIM card to regenerative brakes and driving modes (Eco, Normal and Power) are included in the package.
For a retail price of €3,099 (about INR 2.5 lakh), Yamaha NEO’s was released in Europe last month, while E01 will be available during the next few years. These two electric scooters have yet to go on sale in India, and it’s unclear when it will happen. With India’s automobile industry pushing towards electrification, we believe Yamaha will add electric vehicles to its inventory in the near future.
Other big two-wheeler manufacturers in India are also looking to get into the Indian EV market. A Honda Activa-based electric scooter is likely to follow suit. A battery-powered version of the Burgman Street is presently being developed by Suzuki and is scheduled to be available here by the end of the year.
As on recent record say many of the 2 wheelers was introducing a new brand EV to Indian Ev space and all petrol two-wheeler were entering into Ev space by end of 2022 we may see lot of new branded Ev’s will release into the Indian market.
