Currently, the french mail service (LaPoste) uses over 25000 electric vehicles, among them e-bicycles, e-scooters and trikes with a cargo box, quads and different sizes of electric minivans. It's a pleasure to say hello to the post(wo)man passing by without noise and smoke...

Japan Post and Honda will now jointly conduct demonstration testing on the use of electric vehicles for postal delivery operation and charging stations at post offices.

The two companies will also discuss how the system and capability as well as the quality of maintenance service for vehicles used for postal delivery can be secured and maintained.

Under the scheme, Japan Post will conduct demonstration testing and explore the possibility of introducing electric vehicles to be developed by Honda for postal delivery operation. Though this initiative, the two companies will strive to establish a system and capability where Japan Post can be permanently committed to postal delivery operation while continuously complying with exhaust emission regulations that will become ever more stringent into the future.

What a chance!

This could give Honda a guaranteed market for electric motorcycles and the justification to finally release them as products.

LOL! these are quite often purpose-built vehicles, the requirements for mail service being somewhat different from those of typical e-riders.

And what do you think is sold in all that east-asian megacities and in india? There is the market of the future for a Honda-electroscooter. And the other big japanese MFGs will follow, not to loose the market there.
