The developers explained that the new Kymco Ionex system is based on removable rechargeable batteries weighing only 5 kg. blocks have standard dimensions and are mounted in specially designed cells.Those cells will be equipped with all new electric scooters.A similar principle is used by many manufacturers, but the company from Taiwan went a little further. they announced the creation of special charging stations that will be installed in stores, offices and other organizations.In any of these places it will be possible to exchange a discharged battery for a charged one.Thus, the “refueling” procedure will be almost instantaneous.
The Kymco Ionex scooter is a demonstration of the Ionex system, which contains two removable batteries, and there is also a non-removable battery. In the event that both Ionex batteries sit down, the scooter owner can always get to the station using the energy of the on-board battery. In addition, three additional battery packs can be mounted under the saddle. The total power reserve is 200 km.
Kymco is laying enormous hopes on the Ionex system. In the near future, it is planned to release ten new electric cycles and create a whole network of charging stations in 20 states. The most important point is the creation of infrastructure.
