Honda is one of the most popular and trusted brands in the Indian two-wheeler market, and its Activa scooter has been the best-selling scooter in India for years. Now, Honda is ready to enter the electric vehicle (EV) segment with its first electric scooter, the Honda Activa EV. The Honda Activa Electric will be based on the existing platform of the Activa 125 and the Activa 6G, but with a new electric powertrain and battery pack. Here are some of the key features and specifications of the upcoming Activa EV that you should know:
The Activa EV is expected to offer a range of around 100 km on a single charge, which is sufficient for daily commuting and short trips. The range may vary depending on the riding mode, speed, traffic, and road conditions.
The Honda Activa EV will likely come with a fixed battery pack that can be charged using a standard 5A socket at home or at any public charging station. The charge time is estimated to be around 4 hours for a full charge, and around 2 hours for an 80% charge.
The Honda Activa EV will use a lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of around 3.04 kWh. The battery pack will be mounted under the seat and will have a cooling system to prevent overheating. The battery pack will also have a smart BMS (battery management system) that will monitor the battery health, performance, and safety.
The Honda Activa EV will have a top speed of around 78 kmph, which is comparable to other electric scooters in the market. The top speed will also depend on the riding mode, rider weight, and road conditions.
New Honda Activa EV is set to debut in India in early 2024, according to Honda. The exact launch date is not yet confirmed, but it is likely to be around March 2024.
Price in India:
New Honda Activa EV is expected to be priced at around Rs. 1.10 lakh (ex-showroom), which is slightly higher than the current petrol-powered Activa models. However, the price may vary depending on the state subsidies, GST rates, and other factors.
The Honda Activa EV will be Honda’s first electric offering for the Indian market and will compete with other electric scooters such as TVS iQube Electric, Ola S1 Pro, Ather 450X, Ola S1 Air, and Simple One. The Activa Electric will aim to cash in on the popularity and trust of the Activa brand and offer a reliable, comfortable, and eco-friendly alternative to the conventional scooters.
