Brisbane-based smart electric vehicle and urban transport company e-Motion Concepts has partnered with Horwin Global to bring the company’s EK3 electric motor scooter to the Australian market.
The EK3, winner at the 2021 Red Dot design awards, is yet another two-wheel electric scooter that attracts attention thanks to its bright colours and sleek design. With a top speed of 95km/h and a range of 100-kilometres, the EK3 boasts a centre motor that delivers an output of 6.2kW, allowing it to accelerate to 60km/h in only six seconds.
Measuring in at just under 2-metres in length and just under 700cm in width, the EK3 rides on a combination of a 14-inch front wheel and 13-inch rear wheel, providing excellent manoeuvrability and excellent safety thanks to its efficient CBS braking system.
The EK3 can be equipped with two lithium-ion batteries that are easily removable and can be charged simultaneously, with each 40Ah battery supplying a range of up to 100-kilometres. Battery monitoring and management systems help to protect against over-charging, discharging, over-voltage, short-circuiting, and also monitor the battery temperature.
And, fitting in with a busy lifestyle, one of the EK3’s dual batteries can be charged to full in 3.5-hours.
Other features include a USB charging option, remote control and keyless start, and will be categorised in Australia as a LC (motorcycle), requiring a motorcycle license.
Pricing in Australia has not yet been finalised, but e-Motion Concepts – which trade as EMoS – expect that “the pricing is anticipated to be very competitive” with higher-end petrol scooters.
Horwin Global is also hoping to expand their presence in Australia in the coming future, with plans to bring its other models to our shores – including its EK1 electric scooter and CR6/CR6 Pro electric motorcycle.
