Equipped with a lithium-ion battery and a brushless motor, EV-neo realizes environmental performance with zero CO2 emissions in use, the company claimed. 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 by leveraging the characteristics of a high-torque motor even at a low speed ride, according to the company.

Under the key words of ‘quiet and clean’ Honda held the world premier exhibition of the EV-neo concept model at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show in 2009 as one of Honda’s new-generation personal mobility products. The mass-market model of EV-neo is currently under development.
