Last month, Yamaha had launched two new electric scooters in global markets. In a new development, the Japanese automaker showcased the Yamaha E01 and Yamaha Neo’s to a select number of dealers across the country. The Yamaha Neo’s was released in Europe in March, and the company claims that it will soon be available in ASEAN markets.
Yamaha E01 And Neo’s Electric Scooters Features
When it comes to performance, the Yamaha E01 electric scooter is comparable to a 125cc ICE-powered scooter. It gets a maxi style-inspired design language, twin-pod LED headlamps and a compact windscreen. The E01 has an 11kW motor that’s paired to a battery pack and delivers 80km of range on a full charge. It is the larger of the two scooters and has options such as a digital instrument console, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless start, and different riding modes. The scooter is aimed at fleet operators and might end up getting the same treatment in India.
The Yamaha Neo’s is the smaller of the two electric scooters and is comparable in performance to a 50cc ICE-powered scooter. The scooter gets a 2.5kW electric motor, that is paired to a single 50.4V, 19.2Ah Lithium-ion battery pack and delivers a range of 38.5km on a single charge in ECO mode. The range can be increased to 68km by installing an additional battery pack in a dual-battery setup. The battery here takes about 8 hours to fully top up via a wall socket charger.

The Yamaha Neo’s comes in at a sticker price of EUR 3,005 ( ₹2.52 lakh approx.) in European markets, which puts it above all e-scooters currently on sale in the Indian market in terms of pricing. The Yamaha E01 on the other hand is currently only available on lease to select customers in Japan.
