EMoS and Horwin Global to bring EK3 electric scooter to Australian market
e-Motion Concepts (EMoS), an MTAiQ client and MTA Queensland 2021 Industry Award finalist, has partnered with Horwin Global to bring the EK3 electric scooter to Australia.
To expand their presence in the Australian market, electric motorcycle manufacturer Horwin Global has appointed Brisbane-based company EMoS, to be their Australian distributor and wholesaler. Together, the companies will offer the stylish EK3 scooter to consumers.
The EK3 is described by Horwin as a “combination of fashion and luxury,” and was recently named the 2021 winner of the prestigious RED DOT design awards. The electric scooter is spacious and comfortable, created for everyday use with up to 100km of range and a top speed of 95km/hr.
The dimensions – 1900mm length, 690mm width and 1130mm height – offers space for up to two people, with a maximum load capacity of 170kg. The EK3 has a long wheelbase of 1320mm and a distance of 125mm from the ground. An efficient CBS braking system aids in the safety aspects of the vehicle.
Unlike many other electric scooters available, the EK3 uses a centre motor rather than a hub motor as a powertrain. Developed by Horwin, the centre motor creates an output of 6.2kW and can accelerate to 60 km/h in six seconds. A full torque of 195Nm is activated immediately when the throttle is activated.
“The highly efficient engine motor perfectly balances performance and energy consumption. All finely coordinated components ensure that the powertrain system works efficiently and stably and drives economically far. The central motor delivers consistent and strong performance,” the companies write.
To offer an increased range, the EK3 Scooter can be equipped with two lithium-ion batteries that are easily removable. The battery supplied contains 18650 lithium-ion battery cells. Using a smart charger, the battery can be charged in 3.5 hours.
Other features include a USB smartphone charging port, a modern cockpit display, and a keyless start.
The EK3 is classified as a LC (motorcycle) category in Australia and requires a motorcycle license to drive. The vehicle is also LAMS approved.
Although the Australian retail price for the EK3 has not yet been finalised, the pricing is anticipated to be very competitive with similar style and performance to higher-end petrol scooters.
Horwin Global is currently exploring the potential to bring other models to the market, including the EK1, CR6, and CR6 Pro.
