The Honda Group of Companies in Thailand has brought the company’s electrification technology concepts to the International Electrical Vehicle Technology Conference and Exhibition (iEVTech 2018), which takes place from 6 to 9 June, 2018, at BITEC, Bangkok. At the event, Honda is exhibiting its swappable battery and charger concepts, which can power various forms of electrical mobility such as the PCX Electric scooter and the MC β (M-C-beta) micro-sized EV concept car.
Under the theme “Honda Mobile Power Pack World,” the company is demonstrating its concept for a swappable electric power source that can be used in all types of electric vehicles including motorcycles and automobiles. The highlight of the exhibition is the Honda Mobile Power Pack, a swappable mobile battery that can be used to power small electric vehicles; the Honda Mobile Power Pack Exchanger Concept, a charging station concept that can simultaneously charge multiple Honda Mobile Power Packs and supply replacement battery packs; and the Honda Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply - Portable Concept, a portable charger concept for mobile power packs that can also serve as an outdoor power source.
In addition, the UNI-CUB β, a personal mobility device powered by a lithium-ion battery which features balance control technology that originates from Honda’s research into humanoid robots, ASIMO, is being showcased and offering a test ride at the event.
The UNI-CUB β was developed by analyzing and incorporating the data and the user feedback through this testing program.
Compared to the UNI-CUB, the β version is smaller and lighter, and in addition, a new design and materials were adopted in order to improve usability.
