Yamaha Motor Releases New E-VINO Electric Commuter Bringing more practicality while priced in line with gasoline-run models

IWATA, November 19, 2014 – Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (Tokyo:7272) will release its new electric commuter model E-VINO from December 2014, which offers the great combination of practicality and affordability. Manufacturing and sales of the new model will be carried out by Yamaha Motor Taiwan Co., Ltd

e-vinoThe E-VINO is powered by a newly-developed motor and a new 50V lithium-ion battery. Thanks to these, the new model offers both excellent battery life and ride performance – it can cover a distance of 30.1km per charge (when driven on a flat surface at 30km/h)* while featuring a boost function that provides additional power when required, such as when climbing uphill. The E-VINO also offers more practicality. For instance, the battery is removable, and its remaining level can be easily checked on the instrument panel using both a digital gauge and scale, reducing concern regarding battery level. In addition, convenient under-seat storage allows a spare battery (sold separately) to be stored.
Furthermore, by basing the body on the Vino Molfe, a popular 50cc scooter in the Japanese market, the E-VINO has functions required for easy everyday short-distance commuters while being priced similarly to gasoline-powered models.

The Taiwanese motorcycle market recorded an annual demand level of approximately 700,000 units (Yamaha Motor survey, 2013), of which 50cc-class models comprised approximately 10,000 units, and approximately 70% of these are electric scooters. The main users of electric scooters are office workers and housewives – the E-VINO is targeted for the latter, who generally use electric scooters for short-distance trips.
Yamaha Motor is also planning to launch a Japanese-spec model in 2015.
