Yamaha E01 electric scooter edges closer to production

Published On Jan 11, 2022 07:00:00 AM

A development unit of Yamaha’s electric scooter was reportedly tested by Japanese media recently, indicating what the production version could look like.

Yamaha unveiled the E01 electric scooter concept at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, stating that it would develop into a production e-scooter with performance and output comparable to that of a 125cc scooter. Now, a development unit of the E01 has reportedly been tested by the Japanese media, and it seems to be nearly production-ready.

The test unit maintains the overall shape and form factor of the concept, with the biggest change being to the seat, which now sports a far more conventional design. Other minor changes appear to have been made to the front fender and mirrors.

Instrumentation is in the form of a basic LCD display, which reportedly showed a range estimate of 70km at full charge. There are three riding modes available: eco, normal and power. The warning lights surrounding the display seem to contain something that resemble a connectivity icon, indicating that Bluetooth connectivity could be part of the mix.

Speaking to the Japanese press, Yamaha’s CEO and president Yoshihiro Hidaka states that the company is aiming for a spring 2022 launch, with the first priority being Europe, followed by Japan, the United States, and China. Keeping in mind European regulations, it’s likely that the E01 will have a power output capped at 11kW (15hp) to conform to the light electric scooter regulatory class.
