Development of the PCX ELECTRIC

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.31 No.1

Summary

We developed the electric motorcycle model “PCX ELECTRIC” that satisfies usability under the traffic environment in Japan and ASEAN’s motorcycle sales major countries. The PCX ELECTRIC features easily removable battery packs, which practically helps eliminate the waiting time associated with charging the battery. The compactly designed EV system, which is efficiently packaged in the vehicle, uses two removable 48 V battery packs connected in series to realize a 96 V system suitable for driving the electric motorcycle. The EV system mounted on the body of the 2018 PCX achieves a motor power of 4.2 kW, top speed of 60 km/h, and cruising range of 41 km (at a steady 60 km/h).
In addition, we developed a highly-convenient battery attaching system that enables fixing of the battery to the vehicle body and engaging of the connectors with a single action operation.
