Honda's premium scooter not only has a variant of a fuel engine, and a hybrid engine, but also has an electric variant. On the Astra Honda Motor in the exhibition, IMOS 2018 presented the PCX Electric. Electric PCX is equipped with the Honda Mobile Power Pack, presented as a study to discover the market response to this motorcycle.
Marketing Director of PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) Thomas Wijaya explained that PCX Electric currently has the form of a concept because Honda is currently in the final stages of the development of this motorcycle. "PCX Electric is still in concept. We are in the process of finalizing the product," said Thomas at the IMOS event in Jakarta. Thomas hopes that consumers who are excited about PCX Electric wait until the final process ends.
Especially as an electric motor must comply with government regulations, so PT AHM must wait for the market to develop on this motorcycle. The government regulations that must be known by electric motors are the electrical charge infrastructure, the level of safety of electric motors because this motorcycle barely makes noise, which causes other motors or pedestrians do not recognize.
Other regulations that must be known are related to the cost of raw materials and waste processing that must be recycled. Damaged and unused batteries need to think about how to recycle so as not to contaminate the environment. PCX Electric was the first to attend the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.
With units in the form of electric motors and batteries, PCX Electric has a length of 1,923 mm with a width of 745 mm and a height of 1,107 mm.
This motorcycle battery is below the driver's seat that is usually used to carry a helmet or fuel place. The electric motor is capable of expelling power of 0.98 Kw. With lithium-ion batteries manufactured by Honda, PCX Electric has enough power for electric scooters.
The advantages of the battery can be removed and installed detachable aka, or call the mobile battery, making it easier to use. hay / E-6
