MILAN, ITALY – November 16, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Building on the pinnacle of over 25 years of EV innovation, KYMCO announced three ground-breaking technologies to accelerate the mass-adoption of electric motorcycles: The Ionex Battery-as-a-Service Solution for Energy Companies, the Ionex Battery Metering Unit for EV Manufacturers, and the Ionex Energy Station for Battery-swapping Network Operators. “Today, we stand on the brink of a remarkable transformation in the world of mobility. A shift that reshapes the way we move, a change that KYMCO leads,” said Allen Ko, Chairman of KYMCO.
KYMCO’s Vision: A World with Electric Motorcycles Everywhere
KYMCO sees Energy Companies provide riders with battery services for electric motorcycles. With this battery service, the riders receive batteries from energy companies with guaranteed performance and pay only for actual battery usage. Riders no longer need to buy batteries when purchasing their vehicle.
KYMCO sees EV Manufacturers introduce electric motorcycles with integrated onboard battery metering. Every electric motorcycle works with the Energy Companies’ battery service. Without the costs of the batteries, electric motorcycles are more affordable than ever before.
KYMCO sees Battery-swapping Network Operators deploying thousands of battery-swapping stations, forever erasing range anxiety. Battery-swapping networks provide riders with zero-wait charging and unlimited range.
More profoundly, KYMCO sees riders choosing from a wide variety of electric motorcycles made by various manufacturers and battery service plans that best match their lifestyles. For energy replenishment, riders charge their vehicle in the garage or charge their battery in the house. In the city, riders swap on the go at the nearest battery-swapping station. And while traveling, riders get unlimited range from the extensive battery-swapping network to power all their journeys.
Ionex EV Solution: The True Arrival of the Electric Era
To address all current challenges and future ambitions to fulfill KYMCO’s vision, Chairman Ko announced three ground-breaking technologies to propel all stakeholders to collaborate as the Ionex Open Consortium, an EV ecosystem that brings affordable, convenient, and sustainable electric mobility to all, the true arrival of the electric era.
The Ionex Battery-as-a-Service Solution for Energy Companies, the Ionex Battery Metering Unit for EV Manufacturers, and the Ionex Energy Station for Battery-swapping Network Operators make up the revolutionary Ionex EV Solution. The Ionex EV Solution aims to benefit every stakeholder in electric mobility, especially all consumers, businesses, and governments wishing to go electric.
