At Intermot, Hyosung had already shown off an hybrid/electric scooter, this year they are showing another revised prototype, so still no working model. In fact, they didn't even have anything on paper about the vehicle, apart from what was written on the walls.

They've got two version, the GEM 4.0 and the smaller GEM 2.0.

GEM 4.0


The GEM 4.0 Electric scooter has a 60Ah Lithium-Ion battery, that will give the scooter a respectable speed of 100 kph.


But the range of the scooter is 120 kms, but you need to be riding it at 40 kph to achieve that. In other words, real city riding, not open road.

Big behind

It'll take 2 hours to charge the battery 80%.


No indication when the model will be produced, not how much it would cost.


GEM 2.0


Where the GEM 4.0 would be considered a 125cc scooter, the GEM 2.0 would be a 50cc one. It's not a bad idea, to have a model range starting at the school kids, to the grown-ups who need to go into the city.


The Lithium-Polymer battery has a 40Ah capacity, giving a top speed of 65 kph, not bad for a 50cc equivalent.


The range is 110 kilometers at 35 kph, enough to get to school and back.


As with the GEM 4.0, it takes 2 hours to charge 80% of the battery.

Maybe one day we'll see these scooters on the road for real.
