Forsee Power, the French specialist in smart battery systems, introduced its new battery Go 1.6 at EICMA Motorcycle Show 2019 in Milan, Italy. The Go 1.6 battery is a turnkey portable solution for 2 or 3-wheelers manufacturers.
In addition to the existing offer of on-board batteries (Go 2 and GO 4), the new portable Go 1.6 battery is dedicated to the urban electro-mobility market.
One battery, two options
To meet market needs on the personal mobility segment Forsee Power has developed this new 48 V portable solution in two off-the-shelf 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 50 kph so users can access faster roads.
For even higher autonomy, Go 1.6 batteries can be connected in parallel using the Forsee Power Switching Box solution (up to 3 batteries depending on volume available).
Weighting less than 11 kg, these solutions are extractible from the seat box making them easily transportable to be charged at home or at the office.
Opportunities in Europe and North America
The high-quality lithium-ion Go 1.6 battery will be produced in Forsee Power’s Chinese production plant from March 2020, where the capabilities reach 100,000 scooter batteries per year.
“We are aiming to market Go 1.6 worldwide and have already registered pre-orders in Europe and Asia. This standard offer allows our customers to integrate this battery very quickly, so they can accelerate the launch of their vehicles”, says Frederik Baudrier, Smart Life division Director at Forsee Power.
Forsee Power already equips the world leaders in scooters and the Group provides after-sales service close to its markets on its Polish site. The industrial company has already signed contracts and delivered batteries for world-renowned European manufacturers such as Piaggio, Eccity, Etergo. In addition, Forsee Power equips the drive-train of the scooter manufacturer Bosch (themselves providing the world leaders of the scooter). China’s flagship brands Doohan, Zhongneng and lately NIU Technologies, leader in the smart electric scooter market in China and Europe have already ordered several tens of thousands of batteries from Forsee Power.
