Honda sponsors 50 e-scooters for research on “Mainstreaming Electric Mobility in Vietnam”

On 28 March, a signing ceremony took place to officially announce the cooperation between the National Traffic Safety Committee, the University of Transport Technology (UTT) and Honda Vietnam in the context of the project “Mainstreaming electric mobility in Vietnam”. This is part of a global IKI project under UNEP, implemented by UTT and the National Traffic Safety Committee to promote electric mobility in Vietnam.

The highlight of the ceremony was the handover of 50 e-scooters to UTT staff and students for pilot and research purposes. The event was attended by a huge audience with representatives from UNEP, Vietnam´s Ministry of Transport, the National Traffic Safety Committee, provincial Departments of Transport, the Vietnam Register, and the Directorate for Roads of Vietnam.

According to Prof. Dr. Vu Ngoc Khiem, Vice Rector of the UTT and project manager, this cooperation provides a good opportunity for the research team to collect accurate data and analyze the perceived and real advantages and disadvantages of e-motobikes compared to traditional motorcycles. Ultimately, the the project will enable the development of senarios for introducing e-motobikes on a large scale in Vietnam. During the pilot phase, users will be asked to provide monthly data and feedback through a detailed questionnaire. The pilot phase will contribute scientific findings for UNEP’s research project, which aims to support Vietnamese authorities to develop policies to introduce electric vehicles.
