Yamaha unveils zero-emission electric motor scooter

Postby TylerDurden » Wed Jul 14, 2010 7:57 pm

TOKYO (AFP) – Japan's Yamaha Motor unveiled on Wednesday a zero-emission electric motor scooter for city use that it said could travel five times farther than a gasoline model for the same cost.
The EC-03 can travel 43 kilometres (26.6 miles) on a single six-hour charge from a household power outlet, which costs about 18 yen (cents) in Japan, far less than the cost of powering a conventional 50cc scooter, it said.
Yamaha will launch the e-moped on September 1 in Tokyo, and a month later across Japan, at an expected retail price of 252,000 yen (2,800 dollars).

Hi,

Best Wishes!

This table compares the cost/wh and lifetime cost based on a cycle life of 500 cycles. Nissan Leaf Cells beat Ping LiFePO4 and HK LiPo hands down!

Leaf Cells, tier 1 OEM quality Lithium for roughly a similar lifetime cost as lead!

Module specs are here

Cool. Looks like a gutted Zuma with an electric drive train. The motor has enough watts to be useful.

MotoGP Info 2011: All-electric Yamaha EC-03 to join MotoGP paddock scooter fleet in 2011
2011-04-29 18:02
Yamaha Motor Europe and Dorna Sports, the exclusive commercial and TV rights holder for the FIM MotoGP World Championship, have announced that the all-new electric Yamaha EC-03 will be added to the official paddock scooter fleet for the 2011 racing season. The EC-03 will be used in addition to the existing fleet of special Yamaha JogRR MotoGP scooters.

As the Official MotoGP scooter supplier, Yamaha Motor Europe will provide a range of EC-03 units for use throughout the 2011 race season. Each unit will be customised with special graphics and logos, reflecting its official MotoGP role. The units were officially presented to Dorna during the race weekend in Estoril, Portugal.

Yamaha has provided Dorna Sports with paddock scooters since 2005. This year’s addition of an all-electric model marks the latest move in Dorna’s ongoing programme in order to raise awareness, the MotoGP rights holder has been supporting various projects revolving around environmental sustainability and safety issues under the banner “For a Safer and Greener Future”.

“Yamaha’s longstanding relationship with Dorna Sports is a source of continued pride and inspiration to us,” said Raffaella Pasquino, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Motor Europe. “The introduction of the EC-03 to the MotoGP paddock fleet reflects our shared commitment to a greener future”.

Dorna Sports' Managing Director, Pau Serracanta said: "We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Yamaha Motor Europe through this initiative to use environment-friendly vehicles, as it matches our CSR values”.

Committed to Electric: The EC-03
For some time, Yamaha has been perfecting designs for vehicles that use electric power as a viable, low-emission alternative to petrol. The EC-03 is the result of that continuous effort. This pure electric commuter draws on knowledge and technologies developed over three decades, to define a new kind of convenient, low-impact urban travel.

Designed for busy city-dwellers who are ready to make the switch to independent electric transport, the EC-03 provides a fast, convenient way to get round town. It’s slim and compact enough to take into the office, can be fully charged in around seven hours from any standard wall socket, and boasts a stylish, retro, minimalistic design that guarantees to turn heads on any street.

A timely response to the increasing need for urban transport with a low environmental impact, the EC-03 offers a fun, approachable way to travel.
With virtually no operating costs, it’s economical to run, and combines silent, clean operation with surprisingly nippy performance.
