Yamaha Motor to launch EMF e-scooter with swappable battery

Yamaha Motor Co will launch the EMF e-scooter in Taiwan in March 2022 as its second electric scooter with a swappable battery system through its ongoing collaboration with Gogoro Inc.

The EC-05 launched for Taiwan in 2019 was an OEM model designed by Yamaha Motor based on the platform of a Gogoro production vehicle. In contrast, the EMF’s chassis was designed by Yamaha Motor’s local subsidiary of Yamaha Motor R&D Taiwan based on the Gogoro Design Kit, and will be produced and marketed by Yamaha Motor Taiwan. The Japanese OEM says the EMF’s unique styling sets it apart from other two-wheeled EVs to date while its small-diameter wheels provide it with quick acceleration. The EMF will be able to use the many GoStation battery-swapping stations installed throughout Taiwan by Gogoro Energy Network.

In July of this year, the Company reviewed the Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2050 originally formulated in 2018 and set a new goal of aiming for carbon neutrality throughout all of its business activities—including across the life cycles of its products—by 2050. One of the goals in the plan is to reduce Scope 3 (Use of sold products) CO2 emissions by 90 percent by 2050 compared to 2010’s levels. The EMF is a strategic electric vehicle that will be introduced to the market in order to help achieve this goal.
