Under its EV blueprint, Honda aims to launch at least 10 electric two-wheelers worldwide by 2025.

During the current Japan Mobility Show, Honda is displaying an array of products and new technologies. Many of these are centred around the EV domain. Their most recent revelation is an electric scooter prototype named the SC e: Concept.

From its design, it’s clear that the Honda SC e: electric scooter concept is tailored for city rides. It presents itself as a straightforward daily-use vehicle without any extreme design elements. Its overall design aligns with the traditional scooter aesthetic. Yet, it does boast distinct elements like the full-width LED DRLs. The under-seat battery packs mean the flat floorboard can carry various items, but this limits storage space, perhaps just enough for a helmet. While the prototype lacks front storage, this might change in the production model, given that most commuter scooters have this feature.

Tech-wise, the concept is anticipated to offer Bluetooth connectivity. A spot for a digital instrument cluster is evident, but it’s not yet installed on the prototype. This display will be more compact than those on scooters like the Ola S1 Pro or Ather 450X.

Performance-wise, the Honda SC e: concept uses two swappable batteries, termed “Mobile Power Pack” by Honda. While exact performance figures remain undisclosed, Honda promises commendable speed and range. Uniquely, its motor is rear-wheel-mounted, unlike the typical hub-mounted motors in other scooters. It features telescopic forks up front a single rear shock absorber, and relies on a disc-drum combo for braking.

Honda remains tight-lipped about the powertrain specifics but emphasizes the scooter’s alignment with clean electric mobility principles. It will emit no CO2, ensuring silent, smooth rides. This scooter aligns with Honda’s ambition to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
