日本 本田汽車今天發表最新款電動綿羊,並表示初期將鎖定工商速遞等工商用途,並以企業客戶為主要行銷對象。這台EV-neo早在09年第41屆東京車展以概念車身份參展。EV-neo使用鋰離子電池,性能和50cc汽油引擎相若,行車時也不會產生噪音。不過每充電一次只能以時速30公里行駛30公里平路。

Honda developed the EV-neo, an electric scooter designed to provide the durability necessary for business use, envisioning a wide range of uses by businesses such as delivery services. Equipped with a lithium-ion battery and a brushless motor, EV-neo realizes excellent environmental performance with zero CO2 emissions in use. The battery is rechargeable using a household power source with attention given to the range per charge. Moreover, EV-neo provides performance equivalent to that of mass-market under-50cc gasoline engine motorcycles realizing a powerful ride even with cargo by leveraging the characteristics of a high-torque motor even at a low speed ride.


Under the key words of "quiet and clean" Honda held the world premier exhibition of the EV-neo concept model (under the name EVE-neo) at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show in 2009 as one of Honda's new-generation personal mobility products which will contribute to the realization of a low-carbon society while transporting people and cargo. The mass-market model of EV-neo is currently under development. Honda will continue providing products with excellent environmental performance to more customers in order to contribute to global CO2 emission reduction efforts.
