Honda files a patent for the latest PCX electric scooter in India, which was showcased earlier at the 2018 Auto Expo. We can see a removable 50.4 V lithium-ion battery in the patent filings that can be taken off and plugged later easily.
You are also allowed to charge the battery without removing it using a charging cable. However, the removal feature offers an added convenience. Besides, the all-new Honda PCX electric scooter is packed with a 4.2kW motor.
The PCX EV offered in international markets has an internal combustion engine hybrid and full-electric powertrains. But, as per the reports, the PCX electric is the one that is patented in India.
To speak about looks and features, the electric scooter gets an aggressive design with a mini-maxi look. It comes with a tall windscreen, twin-pod headlamps, remote start key, full digital LCD panel, telescopic front forks, black alloy wheels, split floorboard, twin rear shocks, and disc brakes, with single-channel ABS, and twin battery packs under the seat.
About launching Honda PCX Electric Scooter in India, there is no certainty at present. It’s still early to predict anything. HMSI has already patented some more models, but those patents are used for R&D efforts for future products in the country, according to sources.
