Peugeot Motocycles has chosen Forsee Power to power its new e-Streetzone urban scooter. The e-scooter incorporates up to two portable FORSEE GO 1.6 batteries to provide a range of 110km.
Forsee Power is a key European player in the global light mobility market and a founding member of the Swappable Batteries Motorcycle Consortium (SBMC), whose mission is to promote the widespread use of motorcycles and light electric vehicles while also encouraging more sustainable battery life cycle management.
The battery maker claims it has already equipped more than 130,000 vehicles, offering a wide range of portable and on-board battery systems. With industrial and aftersales capabilities in Europe and Asia – and soon in the US – the Group partners with major OEMs in the light mobility sector, to electrify two-, three- and light four-wheelers.
The Peugeot e-Streetzone was unveiled in Milan last year at the EICMA. The e-scooter will be available in two versions, integrating one or two Forsee Go 1.6 batteries to reach up to 110km autonomy. The batteries are located under the passenger seat, allowing enough space to store a helmet when only one battery is included. Forsee Go 1.6 are swappable batteries that can be easily removed from the scooter to be charged on a standard wall socket.
The Forsee Go 1.6 48 V portable solution in two versions: GO 1.6 Energy and GO 1.6 Power. The Energy version is an affordable solution that delivers sufficient power and range for urban mobility applications such as 50cc equivalents. The Power version has been developed to meet recurrent demands from manufacturers that want to offer a speed range of more than 50kmph so users can access faster roads. For even higher autonomy, the batteries can be connected in parallel using the Forsee Power Switching Box. Lightweight, these solutions are extractible making them easily transportable to be charged anywhere on a 220V power socket. The ability to combine up to 3 batteries gives high flexibility to the user to ensure high autonomy, anytime.
Frederik Baudrier, Director of the Light Electric Vehicle business at Forsee Power, said, “We are proud to count Peugeot Motocycles as a new customer. E-Street Zone is a perfect application for our GO 1.6 battery that was designed to allow easy urban use. The ability to place two batteries in the scooter enables flexible autonomy hence great availability of the vehicle which is key for users in the transition to zero emission mobility.”
