Honda New Electric Scooter Launch. Honda plans to debut the all-new 2023 EM1-e electric scooter in Europe in mid-2023.
As part of its ‘carbon neutrality by 2040’ goal, the automaker plans to launch 10 or more electric two-wheelers globally by 2025. The moniker “EM” stands for Electric Moped. The two-wheeler follows the design of a scooter with a short wheelbase and flat floorboards that allow for simple mounting and dismounting in work clothes.

The EM1-e will be ideal for short city trips. The scooter will offer a range of 40 km from a single Honda Mobile Power Pack (MPP) battery. It will have replaceable batteries that allow charging via household current. The company will unveil the official specs and features of the EM1-e when it is launched.
The company made the announcement in September during a briefing session regarding its motorcycle business plan. It aims to launch these bikes in China, Asia, Europe, and Japan.
Honda divides bikes into three categories – Electric Bicycles (EB), Electric Mopeds (EM), and Electric Vehicles (EV). The EB category is defined as a vehicle with a top speed of 25 km/h or less.
An EM will have a maximum speed of 50 km/h or less and an EV is defined as a vehicle with a maximum speed of 50 km/h. The company will launch seven mopeds, three big bikes, and one small trail bike for kids. Although, it did not reveal many details about its upcoming products or their prices.
