Ketua Eksekutifnya, Bastamam Hamzah, berkata motosikal terbabit akan dilancarkan dalam tempoh dua bulan lagi atau sebelum akhir tahun ini pada harga di bawah RM5,000 seunit.
Katanya, dengan menggunakan kuasa bateri sebagai komponen utama untuk menggantikan enjin asal kenderaan itu, pembeli bakal menikmati pelbagai kelebihan dan ciri-ciri menarik setanding keluaran motosikal lain.
Buat permulaan, 15 unit motosikal elektrik itu sudah dikeluarkan untuk ujian dan apabila semua persiapan, khususnya membabitkan undang-undang permotoran baru diluluskan di Parlimen nanti, kami menyasar mengeluarkan antara 500 unit sebulan atau 6,000 unit setahun.
Malah, kelebihan motosikal ini ia dilengkapi ciri motosikal biasa dan hanya memerlukan sumber kuasa elektrik biasa bagi mengecas semula baterinya sebelum boleh digunakan semula, katanya sempena lawatan pegawai kanan kumpulan DRB-Hicom yang diketuai Pengarah Urusan Kumpulannya, Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil ke Balai Berita di Kuala Lumpur, semalam.
Menurutnya, motosikal elektrik yang menepati standard piawaian pencemaran udara dan bunyi Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau & Air (KETTHA) itu hanya memerlukan lima bateri dan mampu bertahan sehingga 65 kilometer (km) dengan kelajuan minimum 60 sehingga 110 km sejam.

Modenas akan mengeluarkan motosikal elektrik sebelum akhir tahun ini. Dengan harga mencecah bawah RM 5000 seunit, motosikal mesra alam ini mampu mencapai kelajuan 110km/h untuk jarak sejauh 65km

Modenas hopes to launch electric bike by end-Aug

MOTOSIKAL Dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd (Modenas), the national motorcycle company, hopes to launch its own electric motorcycle within two months, subject to approvals from the authorities.

Modenas chief executive officer Bastamam Hamzah said the company has 15 pre-production units at hand, but will look to produce some 500 units per month in its Gurun factory for local consumption once it receives the green-light.

The selling price will be below RM5,000 per unit and it takes roughly three-and-a-half hours to fully charge the motorcyle from zero base. It has a 1KW motor.

“At the current (electricity) rate, it will be 39 sen for a full charge and the bike can take you (to a distance) of 65km,” Bastamam told reporters at Balai Berita, The New Straits Times Press in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
 
The electric motorcycle, which is fully developed, assembled and manufactured in Malaysia, can hit maximum speed of 110km per hour.

“The target market will be the urban and inter-urban within the 35km to 40km range – people that are conscious about energy and cost of operations,” said Bastamam.

He added that ownership cost is 50 per cent less compared to a normal bike as electric bikes do not utilise engine oil, filters and spark plugs.

While the company has not decided on a name for the bike, it is currently referred to as CTRIC, since it is an extension of the CT series.

“In terms of parts, 80 per cent of the (electric) bike is (the) standard CT series bike. The electric motor is a fully integrated unit and you can purchase the batteries, which is under warranty for a year,” he added.

Each electric bike requires five batteries to operate, and Modenas will also look at having a programme whereby motorcycle owners can lease the batteries from selected distributors to help keep cost low.

The electric bike is currently waiting approvals from the Road Transport Department and the government.

“Under the law, we have to give the chassis and engine numbers before the grant is issued. But because we don’t have an engine number, the law needs to be changed to accommodate electric vehicles,” said Bastamam.

DRB-HICOM Bhd group managing director Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil said it is currently under review in Parliament.

Modenas, a 70 per cent subsidiary of DRB-HICOM, will also look to export its electric bike to the European markets in future.

The company has spent close to RM1 million on research and development over a five month duration to create its own electric bike.
