Honda Vietnam cooperates to implement “Mainstreaming Electric Mobility in Vietnam” Research
Hanoi, Vietnam: Honda Vietnam Co., Ltd. (HVN), cooperates with the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC) and the University of Transportation Technology in researching and evaluating the potential of electric motorcycles in Vietnam. HVN will provide 180 PCX ELECTRIC to serve for the research process.

Although an electric motorcycle can be one of the potential options to reduce the environmental impact created by personal mobility, there are limitations in performance, total cost effectiveness and convenience compared to traditional motorcycles. It is also very important to consider the solution for future potential problems in using electric motorcycles such as disposal of used batteries, which could seriously damage the environment.

Therefore, HVN cooperates with the University of Transportation Technology and the NTSC to conduct research on the possibility of electric motorbikes in Vietnam. This is a part of the overall environmental research program of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the Ministry of Transport and the NTSC:
 
  • HVN will support 180 PCX ELECTRIC to serve for the research on the possibility of using the electric motorbikes in Vietnam in the future.
  • The participants will use HVN electric motorbikes to evaluate the possibility of using this type of vehicle in Vietnam. The project team will ask participants for providing data relating to uses and usage and their direct feedback to make analysis and report. The research will last 03 years (from March 28th 2019 to the end of March 27th 2022).
HVN would like to contribute to the development of Vietnam, focusing on not only situation evaluation but also specific and feasible solutions to gain maximum benefits for daily movement of citizens.
