Honda Gyro Canopy:e is the latest addition to the Japanese brand’s line of electric delivery vehicles. Like many other car manufacturers around the world, Honda has gone to great lengths in its plans to electrify its product line, both at public events and behind the scenes. In December 2019, Benly:e, its first electric scooter model, was launched in the Japanese market. Through it, Honda was able to introduce a business-oriented technology called Mobile Power Packs (MPP), a portable, interchangeable battery that it has painstakingly developed for use in a wide range of vehicles. different devices.
Following the Benly:e is the Gyro:e cargo tricycle, an electric update to Honda’s longstanding Gyro tricycle. Gyro is also a very popular means of delivery in many countries around the world. Like all-electric and internal-combustion-powered Benlys, it’s often used by delivery drivers.
Since “3” is considered a magic number in many languages, on October 28, 2021, Honda introduced its third electric delivery vehicle to the market. That new model has the full name of Honda Gyro Canopy:e. Like the traditional versions of Benly and Gyro, the Gyro Canopy has a long history in delivering pizza, takeout, and a variety of other goods to people who want to get them as soon as possible.
The new electric scooter version of the Gyro Canopy:e is designed for use by customers contracted to facilitate the collection of used battery packs with Honda. As part of its goal of producing 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2040, Honda is taking the necessary steps to ensure that all expired battery packs do not end up in landfills.
In terms of specs, the Gyro Canopy:e is claimed to have a range of 77 km per charge, assuming an average speed of 30 km/h commonly found in urban delivery situations. It takes 5 hours to fully charge, but if businesses do alternate charging of MPP batteries at charging stations, swapping a depleted battery pack for a new one will happen in a matter of seconds.
The Honda Gyro Canopy:e scooters have a “modest” maximum capacity of 4.3 hp at 5,800 rpm, as well as 13 Nm of maximum torque at 2,300 rpm. Like the internal combustion version, it is licensed as a scooter in Japan, and like two other recent Honda electric delivery scooters, it is available in white or red for you to choose from. . The total cost for a Gyro Canopy:e is 715,000 yen, including consumption tax.
