2. Platform E:
Honda’s new dedicated EV platform will serve as the foundation for multiple new models and support different drivetrains such as fixed battery and swappable battery platforms. Two mid-range electric two-wheelers are expected to be launched in 2024. The swappable battery models will be powered by Honda’s Mobile Power Pack E. Components for these EV models such as the battery packs, the PCU and the motor will also be ‘Made in India’.
3. Workshop E:
The after-sales experience of Honda electric two-wheelers will also be enhanced by equipping HMSI’s existing 6,000 touchpoints across the country with charging spots and EV service facility. In addition, battery charging solutions for customers will also be provided at strategically located petrol pumps, metro stations and other hotspots across the country.
