Economic Times, 12 Jun '19

With the need for zero emission mobility growing fast across the world, several automakers are working on battery swapping technology in order to make sure lesser cost to the customers. Yamaha becomes the latest automobile brand to enter the battery swapping technology front.

Yamaha has just unveiled its battery swapping technology enabled new e-scooter range christened as EC-05. The move comes just a few months after Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Honda announced they will join hands to fast forward the development of battery swapping technology.

Also, Yamaha previously announced it is partnering with a Taiwanese company Gogoro for developing swappable battery. The Yamaha EC-05 brings the technology developed by these two companies. The powertrain specifications of these EC-05 electric scooters are yet to be disclosed.

However, the range of these electric scooters are likely to be between 80 km and 100 km. This means, the the Yamaha EC-05 electric scooters can become perfect commuting medium in and around the cities without leaving any carbon footprint.

The EC-05 will initially hit the Taiwanese market, sometime around August this year. Later, this scooter will be launched across the world. We can hope India to get the scooter range in coming years.
