The electric powered version of the Honda Super Cub can be slated to go in to production in 2018, in line with the company’s. Initially introduced being a concept unit in 2009, it will probably be primarily offered only in Asia, before expanding to a large number of Asian markets. Honda’s Smart Cub hardly needs a great introduction, belonging to the most popular two-wheelers ever before produced.
The Honda electric powered Cub first appeared as being a concept model at the 2009, this kind of time with a sole electric motor in the rear wheel hub. With a styling that will pay clear homage to the iconic 1958 model, the EV-Cub is a correct replica of the 2015 Super Cub concept; a version that appears nearer to what a real development model would seem like.
Along with the front tire hub motor, gone is definitely the LED lightshow of the 2009 concept. The battery pack is attached low in the body, and it is removable via a tilting cover on the left side of the bike. EV-Cub appears to be little more than a city commuter with relatively small range and performance figures inside the original 50 cc Smart Cub’s ballpark. the EV-Neo. 9 kWh battery, that peaks at 3. almost eight hp (2. 8 kW) for the range of thirty four km (21. 1 mi) at 30 km/h (18. 6 mph) on level ground.
Hopefully Honda can opt for a stronger deal, given that by 2018 the EV-Neo’s technology will certainly probably be almost twelve years old. The Smart Cub is a global celebrity and, should marketplace conditions allow for that, we cannot imagine so why Honda would miss away on the opportunity.
