Global Electric Motorcycles & Scooters Market 2019 Yadea, AIMA, Lvyuan, Sunra, TAILG, Lima, BYVIN, Zongshen Electric Motorcycle

This year marked the 100th anniversary of the Barcelona International Motor Show. Among the rows and rows of fancy new cars sat a number of impressive electric motorcycles and scooters as well. Below are our top five favorites.

As part of the celebration marking 100 years of Barcelona International Motor Shows, a new wing was added for electric micromobility. This included everything from electric motorcycles to kick scooters and self-balancing machines.

Among the personal electric vehicles were a number of impressive designs that were each an innovation in their own way. The following five were my favorite, and are presented in no significant order. They all deserve the top spot!


NIU is one of the most advanced electric scooter companies in the world. They have a range of high-tech electric scooters which we have covered previously. But now we finally got our first up-close look at their flagship scooter, the NIU NGT.

The NGT reaches a top speed of 70 km/h (44 mph), making it an urban electric scooter designed for city commuting. The NGT features a Bosch motor rated at 3 kW, which is more powerful than most urban electric scooters.

Pursang Big Bore

Pursang, a Barcelona-based electric motorcycle startup, is reviving the original Pursang motorcycle from the 60s.

The name Pursang comes from Bultacos US-version gas motorcycle, originally introduced in 1965. The new Pursang company isnt ready to start delivering motorcycles just yet, but they are getting close. They were on hand at the Barcelona Motor Show to demonstrate their current production prototype.

The rebirth of an electric Pursang will come in two forms: the 6 kW E-Street and the 11 kW BigBore. The BigBore was on show and is pictured above.

The BigBore is expected to reach a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and provide an electric range of 100 km (62 mi) with two batteries. That would make it a largely urban assault-type electric motorcycle that would still be capable of short jaunts at highway speed.

Electric two-wheelers, as indicates itself, is electricity-powered two-wheelers. A battery pack and a motor are installed to store and transform the electricity. A user control is usually attached to the handle bar to brake and adjust the speed. Under this abstract definition, a variety of types and styles are available to consumers in the market and still developing. This paper follows the mainstream definition and mainly focuses on the Chinese market. Electric Motorcycles & Scooters can be classified as a combination of electric bicycle, electric scooter, electric motorcycle, and so on. The power-assisted electric scooter with pedals is also called electric bicycle in China. Hence, the in this report, the statistics mainly focus on the following several kinds including E-motorcycles, E-bicycles and E-scooters etc.


Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked ministries to prepare a policy towards the introduction and development of electric vehicles in the country. This is a wise and timely step.

Electric vehicles (EVs) are getting increasingly popular by the day. Clean air requirements and GHG mandates have made EVs a reality. EVs have a high purchase cost, but are energy efficient. Due to cheaper electricity than petrol and diesel and higher efficiency, the operating costs of EVs are much less. Thus, the life cycle cost of EVs is lower than conventional fuel vehicles. However, the upfront costs are still high, and thus the need of a policy. In Pakistan, the capacity trap is another good reason to introduce EVs to improve capacity utilization. Night charging of EVs may particularly be useful in this respect.

EVs have a fuel-cost advantage over conventional vehicles by a factor of 2, depending upon the comparative prices of petrol vs electricity. However, the high upfront cost, is a major impediment in EV sales, especially in poor developing countries. It is being projected that by 2025 or slightly later, the price difference will go away. There are varying driving factors in individual countries. In Northern Europe, where there is heavy fuel taxation, EVs may be more attractive than in the US where fuel costs are probably the lowest among advanced countries.

Global market share of EVs stood at 4.6 percent in 2018. By 2025, the market share may go as high as 12.5-25 percent. In China, EV market share of 50 percent is expected by the year 2025 and in Norway, it is already 50 percent. The market share of EV buses in China is already 90 percent. The largest electric bus manufacturer in the world is BYD of China (The CPEC framework could be utilized for launching the system under which technical and financial assistance could be obtained). In Europe, there is a target of 100 percent urban electric buses by 2030 and a market share of EV buses of 75 percent by that year. EVs may become the market leader between 2025 and 2030 in the developed world.

India plans to have a 30 percent market share of EVs by 2030.This year, India has announced a $1.4 billion subsidy programme for EVs. The programme is, however, focused on two and three-wheelers and buses and only marginally on cars. After China, India has made great plans for introducing electric buses; the main driving factor being urban pollution. Several EV production plants have already been built. Of special interest to us may be the Maruti-Suzuki and Mahindra-Mahindra initiative activity in EV production in India. Another important company is the BYD (Chinese) joint venture with a local Indian company manufacturing electric buses.

In India, Mahindra has launched its e2O electric car at a price of PKR1.0 million and an e-Rickshaw at a price of PKR2-3 lakhs (for 3 and 5 seaters respectively). Maruti-Suzuki is to launch its new electrical version of the Wagon-R by the year 2020 at a price of $10,000 with subsidy and 30 percent higher without subsidy. The petrol version today is priced at $7000. Suzuki has a strong presence in Pakistan, and its Indian experience may be replicated here conveniently.

In Pakistan, to contain pollution, EV buses may be an ideal solution for metros and the satellite feeding buses that are required for connecting the metro with different areas. The annual bus demand is of 800 vehicles, catered to by three assemblers. It is unlikely that local production would be justified at this volume. On the other hand, one can foresee some activity towards conversion of existing conventional buses into electric buses. There are 250,000 buses and an equal number of trucks (250,000) operating which may create a much larger demand of conversion. Conversion of diesel buses into electrical bus has become a mainstream activity. Earlier, it was a DIY activity or on a smaller scale. Now big companies have come into this sector and are offering conversion kits. All it requires is to replace the existing diesel engine by an electric motor and fit the battery under chassis. In Pakistan, there is great potential to introduce the conversion business. The EV policy should consider conversion aspects as well.

There are three major companies in cars (Suzuki, Toyota and Honda) and three (Hino, Isuzu, Master) in the buses and trucks market, which may have a major stake and influence on the EV policy. Toyota and Honda do not have a clear vision or market plan yet for the EV sector, even globally or in the region. They have an interest in hybrids which are not really EVs in the real sense. They do have one or two symbolic EV models but have not developed a full range of products. Their limited current offerings in EV do not match with their main products, here in Pakistan and elsewhere. As mentioned earlier, Suzuki has one EV product that has chances of good market share in the absence of Toyota and Corolla in the EV market.

Many small local investors backed by Chinese principals are interested in local assembly of EV cars and have reportedly submitted their proposals in this respect. Reportedly, not much interest has been indicated in electric buses, perhaps due to the smaller market size. Whether it is EV or a conventional car, it is still largely conventional technology and the processes of painting, welding and metal work. Only 30 percent of the cost may be EV specific. There has been a yearning in the country to produce rather than assemble cars. A number of attempts have failed earlier in this respect, and it requires deep pockets, technology and market power.

There are three policy choices; one, to allow free import of EVs at none or reduced custom duties which can flood the market at the expense of the existing local car industry. The second is to promote local manufacturing under custom duty concessions; this will introduce a small and separate EV industry away from the mainstream automotive industry. The risk is that the market may be fragmented by the induction of smaller uncertified and established companies, something that should be avoided.

The third is to induce the existing automotive industry under a deletion programme; to introduce EV; the existing players may be able to introduce limited models not catering to the market spectrum. They may require a longer time framework. New players, such as from China, may be introduced under this. The government may be able to attract big Chinese companies under its SEZ programme of CPEC via this approach. There is another potential market of motorcycles which can also go electric. The motorcycles market is of a respectable size.

The establishment of electrical charging infrastructure is a major policy question. Public transport should receive priority. Conversion of buses (five years or less old) to EV should receive attention. Pick-ups and 4x4s may have better chances to succeed. EVs offer a good opportunity to bring in more and genuine competition in the automotive sector. All this requires an EV policy which should pull together the various strands of the issue through stakeholder consultations. Oil is already gone from the power sector; if it also goes away or is significantly reduced from transport sector, one may have to reconsider or dilute the heavy investments programme in the oil sector that is being considered by the government.


Prime Minister Imran Khan on May 18 chaired a meeting on climate change and decided to introduce electric cars and electric bikes by setting up electric vehicle plants for the first time in the country. Adviser to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam briefed the premier on the climate change. The prime minister ordered the authorities concerned to ensure conversion of 30 per cent of all cars running in the country into electric vehicles by 2030. Later, Mr Aslam said the government planned to introduce electric cars in the country by 2030 and that the move would have far-reaching impact on the countrys environment. Most countries are opting for electric cars across the world and Pakistan is far behind in it and once introduced in the country, electric vehicles will help save Rs2 billion worth of oil imported into the country besides reducing the countrys air pollution, he said. The adviser said that smoke emissions from vehicles were a major source of air pollution in the country and it contributed heavily to smog during winter season in Punjab, especially in Lahore. He said that electric cars would help lessen dependence on LPG and compressed natural gas stations, most of which were shut down because of gas closure on different days especially in winter in Punjab and these stations would be converted into charging docks for electric cars. Referring to the smog issue in Punjab during winter, he said that last year crop burning, one of the major sources of smog in Punjab, was banned. This year, too, he said, crop burning would be prohibited and the government planned to purchase the crop waste to sell it to industrial units. He also announced plans to launch Green Rickshaws in the country and for this purpose the government was holding talks with different stakeholders. Chairman Pakistan Electric vehicles manufacturers association Mohammad Sabir Sheikh said the government should not use the word electric cars but also cover electric vehicles, electric bikes, electric commercial vehicles, electric tri wheelers, and electric heavy vehicles especially made for academic institutions. Motorcycle population is far higher than other vehicles due to its massive usage. The government should focus more on electric two wheelers. He said most of the two wheeler units are already closed and they would not need more time to start assembly of electric bikes. Vendors are also equipped with expertise to develop electric bike parts as these bikes require only body parts and a batteries rather than engine. Vendors are capable for making electric bike parts. Sabir said electric bikes will save millions of dollars import bill of petrol besides ensuring pollution free environment. He said the government should reduce customs duty on CKD parts of electric bikes and remove red tapisam at the bureaucracy level especially in EDB, BOI and PSQCA. One of the main advantages of the electric bikes is that it cannot be used in street crime activities because it lacks torque and thrust as compared to petrol driven bikes.

30 percent vehicles to be converted to electric cars by 2030: PMs advisor

LAHORE: In an effort to make the atmosphere pollution free, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam claimed that 30 per cent of the vehicles in the country would be converted to electric vehicles by the year 2030. Addressing a press conference, Malik Amin said that an electrical vehicle policy will be devised within 15 days under the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The advisor said, This step will prove to be helpful in bringing significant reduction in the import of oil. He further said the electric vehicles will also improve the environment and help deal with the challenge of smog. Amin said the government was focused on making Pakistan an exporter of electric vehicles within the period of five years. He said vehicle examination system is also being introduced in the transport sector to check condition of vehicles. Responding to a question, Amin Aslam said that 10 billion tree tsunami was the project of Pakistans bright future. Read More: PM Imran wants electric vehicle policy finalised in two weeks Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Ministry of Climate Change to finalise an electric vehicle policy in the next two weeks and present it before the federal cabinet for approval. He gave these directions while chairing a high level meeting on climate change in Islamabad. The prime minister was informed that the main reason behind environmental pollution in Punjab province is smoke emitted by vehicles. During the meeting, officials of the ministry stressed the need for promotion of electric vehicles to reduce carbon emissions. Besides, they said these vehicles will not only help cut oil import bill but also address issues stemming from climatic changes.


Why would I wants an electric motorbike?

In general terms, the motoring world seems to be headed to an electric future. By 2040, the sale of new petrol and diesel models (excluding hybrids) will be banned in the World.
You are also helping to reduce our collective carbon footprint and to lower CO2 emissions from road traffic. Electric motorbikes reduce pollution in more than one way. Noise pollution is a near-permanent issue, especially in cities. Going electric lets you start your 6am commute without waking your neighbourswith the sudden roar of a bikes engine. But for many, embracing the future and being an eco-friendly rider aren't good enough reasons to make the switch.

Future Ready

By 2020, EVs are likely to cost the same as conventional fuel powered equivalents. While this will cannibalize revenue from conventional fuel powered cars, it also opens up new windows of opportunity for car manufacturers in new mobility services, for charging infrastructure companies and for battery manufacturers. Exploring new markets, expanding product portfolios, and introducing new business models will be among the key enablers of market growth. Adopting a common standard for EV charging, leveraging incentives and subsidies and deepening collaboration between car manufacturers and suppliers to promote technology development and economies of scale will provide a platform on which the global EV market can build its future. Pakistan yet to have annaunce supportbale policies for Electric Bike Manufacturers to start assembling in shortest time.

How do I charge an electric motorbike?

You should be able to charge an electric bike at any electric vehicle (EV) charging station. Some models will allow you to plug in to a normal wall socket and charge from home. The charge time will depend on your particular model and what extra bits of kit you have. On average, you should be able to fully charge an electric motorbike in four to six hours. Some models let you buy charge tanks, which offer a faster charge. Using these means your total charge time is shaved down to around two hours.

Here are all the coolest electric motorcycles coming in 2019

2018 was a big year for electric motorcycle and scooter announcements. That means 2019 is the year that many of these models will first roll out to the public. Large companies and new startups alike have been getting into the electric two-wheeler game, offering up a wide range of new electric rides. From crazy high powered electric motorcycles to sensible commuter electric scooters.

2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire

We have to begin with Harley-Davidsons upcoming electric motorcycle because its probably the most hyped up and long awaited model coming in 2019.

Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki And Kawasaki Join Hands To Work On Battery Technology

The Jap big four are looking at creative swappable battery solutions
- This is the first time these bikemakers have joined hands to work towards a single goal. - Working towards creating a standardised protocol.
- Taiwanese brand Kymco is also working on similar battery solutions.

One of the biggest skepticisms that electric mobility faces is range anxiety. Intra-city mobility has not been a big cause of concern, but you cannot venture to cities afar with the current tech. The big four from Japan, that is Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki, have joined hands to form a consortium to tackle this issue. The brands intend to develop common tech for swappable batteries.

Unlike fossil fuel-powered vehicles, where refilling fuel takes few minutes, one would need to charge the batteries for nearly an hour to clock some reasonable mileage. This gave birth to the idea of swappable batteries. Kymco was the first to work on a similar solution wherein you could reach dedicated touch points and swap out your depleted battery for a fresh fully-charged one. This is exactly what the consortium will be basing their research on as well.
As a result, it is likely that we would get to see common battery technology as well as packaging. This would help shift the focus towards making electric mobility solutions uniform between the four brands. Plus, each one of the four brands can now tackle the performance bits to their liking without worrying about the battery tech.


Its time to take electric motorbikes seriously. In 2016, Germany voted to ban the internal combustion engine by 2030, and the UK Government is under pressure to bring its ban on the sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans forward from 2040 to 2032. We're expecting this to have a direct impact on the bike market too, but what do you need to know about electric motorcycles? Latest electric motorbike news: prototype Zero SR/F review Tesla have made huge steps towards bringing electric cars into the mainstream, even working to improve the infrastructure by installing fast-charge points at service stations. It doesnt look like they have any interest in launching a motorbike anytime soon, but others are making serious progress and theyre getting pretty good.

A throughly modern take on the classic Vespa design

With production starting in Spetember 2018, Piaggo Group have actually already started taking deposits of 550 for their new Vespa Elettrica scooter online. The remaining balance of the 5999 price will be settled with a local dealer. The latest and thoroughly modern version of the Vespa platform is being produced in the very plant where the first machine rolled off the line in 1946, and promises to give riders 62 miles from a single charge. Powered by a lightweight, lithium-ion battery, it makes a continuous 3.5kW of power with a peak of 4kW and gives dizzying performance "superior to that of a traditional 50cc scooter," thanks to a whopping 147.5ft-lb or torque at the wheel - around 24ft-lb more than a Yamaha V-Max. A full charge will take four hours and can be done through either a household plug, or from an outside charging point and the battery is good for 1000 cycles, which should see a life of between 50,000km and 70,000km.

      What is an Original Electric Motor Bike?

      Just like their petrolcousins, electric motorbikes come in all shapes and sizes. The main difference between electric and petrol models is the presence of-orlack of-anengine. Electric bikes rely on a rechargeable battery and a set of electric motors to give it power.

      Lower running costs

      According to one international brand of Motorcycles, the Zero S electric motorbike costs under USD 1.5 per full charge. This should in the right conditions let you travel around 120 miles. By contrast, the BMW R1200RT one of 2016s best-selling petrol models costs around USD 45 to fill the tank. According to TotalMotorcycle, the R1200RT has a fuel economy of around 60 mpg, so a full tank gives it a 330-mile range. This gives you 2.5p per mile for the Zero S vs 9p per mile for the BMW. Assuming you ride around 7,500 miles a year, switching to an electric model could save you almost USD 800.
