Husqvarna electric scooter E-01 & e-Pilen motorcycle to launch in 2021-22

In the recent past, PIERER Mobility Group (formerly KTM Industries Group) revealed that the brand is working on a KTM eScooter. In its half-yearly report, the company has now disclosed that it is also working towards the development of a new e-scooter positioned under the Husqvarna brand. In fact, reports suggest that the brand may be working on an e-scooter as well as an e-motorcycle under the Husqvarna brand. 

It is not a secret that PIERER Mobility Group has joined hands with Bajaj Auto to develop e-mobility solution that will be sold globally and the brand also announced in the past that the company is working on 3 kW to 10 kW capacity two-wheelers. Reports suggest that the new Husqvarna scooter will be based around a 4 kW motor capacity and is likely to be manufactured at Bajaj Auto’s Chakan production facility in Pune.

Interestingly, the Baja Chetak all-electric scooter features an electric motor with the output of 4080 Watt ( 4kW) of peak power and 3800 Watt of continuous power. The Husqvarna E-01 the electric scooter iteration is likely to be powered by the same unit. Another Husqvarna e-motorcycle, which is likely to be called the e-Pilen is also being speculated to be developed on the same platform but tuned differently. 

The e-scooter which could be named E-01 features straight cuts and crease lines following the Husqvarna design philosophy and features a floating front apron straight bench seats, short rear overhang, a generous footboard, upright handlebars, but the concept wheels are likely to make way for a more conventional unit. The name too might be changed to something different and the E-01 moniker could just be the internal name. 

The e-motorcycle draws its design inspiration from the Husqvarna Vitpilen & Svartpilen and appears to get a trellis frame with a mid-mounted motor, chain drive system, upside-down forks, monoshock on the rear etc and a contrast paint theme. 

The Husqvarna electric scooter is likely to be manufactured at Bajaj Auto’s manufacturing facility in Chakan and is expected to go on sale sometime in 2021. On the other hand, the Husqvarna e-motorcycle is expected to follow in 2022.
