Honda showcased the EV-Cub concept for the very first time at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show and since then the model was displayed at various stages and went on to gain a lot of attention around the globe. Recently Honda announced their official plans to make the EV-Cub concept into a production version. The company announced that EV-Cub will make into production by the year 2018 and will be first introduced only in the Japanese market. Based on the response received then it will be launched in the selected European, Asian and American markets.

According to Takahiro Hachigo, president and chief executive, Honda, “the company will serve the growing eco-friendly energy needs by EV-CUB. Since two-wheelers are a major mode of transportation for the world, an efficient electric scooter is really the answer to the growing fuel needs of the day.”

He added “We are planning to introduce the EV-CUB, a mass-production model developed based on the EV-CUB Concept electric motorcycle, to the Japanese market about two years from now and then subsequently in main ASEAN countries, which have been the largest market for the Honda Cub Series. Building on the Cub models, which have taken deep root in people's everyday lives, we will strive to popularise the EV and reduce CO2 emissions."

The EV-Cub can reach up to a maximum of 72km/hr of the top speed and can be charged upto 80% of the total battery in just an hour of plug-in. Other than that, it has a battery change interval of 50,000 kms. Share with us your views on the same in the comment section below.
