Kymco forays into electric drivetrain tech by announcing two all-electric scooters
In one of the most notable announcements made over the last few days, Taiwanese two-wheeler manufacturer Kymco had revealed that it is bringing two all-electric scooters to the market.
With Kymco apparently making substantial moves towards electrification, the announcement of the two all-electric scooters underscores the fact that the company is venturing into electric drivetrain technology for its two-wheelers.
The two Kymco all-electric scooters are called The Nice 100 EV and The New Many 110 EV. Both the scooters will come with swappable batteries, and will specifically be manufactured for the purpose of city driving.
According to the details shared by Kymco, the entry-level Nice 100 EV scooter will have a range of nearly 37 miles, and a top speed of 28 miles per hour. The high-end The New Many 110 EV scooter, on the other hand, will have a top speed of 37 miles per hour.
According to some noteworthy information shared by Kymco, both all-electric scooters will have sufficient storage for fitting three extra batteries, thereby theoretically enabling them to achieve an overall range of more than 100 miles. Kymco has also revealed that the company will be building a network of battery charging stations.
So far as the cost -- after local subsidies -- of Kymco’s two all-electric scooters is concerned, The Nice 100 EV will cost approximately $1,400, while The New Many 110 EV will be priced at around $1,600.
