Taiwanese motorcycle/scooter manufacturer KYMCO unveils two new electric scooters
Taiwanese motorcycle and scooter company KYMCO has recently marked its foray into the electric scooter arena, with the unveiling of its two new electric scooter lines.
The electric scooters unveiled by KYMCO are being marketed in Taiwan as the New Many 110 EV and the Nice 100 EV. Both the electric scooters are city-commuting vehicles rather than speedsters, and are part of KYMCO’s Ionex line of EVs.
According to the information shared by KYMCO, the cost of the New Many 110 EV in Taiwan will be around $1,600 USD after local subsidies; while the Nice 100 EV will be priced at $1,430 USD after local subsidies. The electric scooters are scheduled to hit the local market respectively in August and October 2018.
The design of the New Many 110 EV and Nice 100 EV is the typical European Vespa-style step through design; with somewhat ‘standard’ specifications. The New Many 110 EV will have a maximum speed of 59 km/h (37 mph) and its range will be 60 km (37 mi). The Nice 100 EV will also have the same range, but it will be able to reach a speed of up to 45 km/h (28 mph).
For drawing their main power, both the new KYMCO electric scooters will rely on two removable batteries. However, the scooters will also have a small built-in battery for auxiliary and backup power.
