Swag EV Scooters Released in Bangkok

Cool Scooters, Electric Power

Swag EV is a Singapore-based company that has some cool new electric scooters for the masses of Bangkok, Thailand. Swag stands for Supreme Wagon Automotive Group. The group has two new scooters that use Bosch brushless hub motors: the Type S and Type X, according to Thailand Tatler.

The Type S is a retro-looking scooter. Think Honda Metropolitan. The Type X is more of a modern aggressive design. Both look pretty cool, and the performance numbers are nothing to sneeze at. The S has a 60 volt 1750 W motor. The X gets a 60 volt 2020 W motor. Both scooters come with removable batteries from Samsung. This means you can take the batteries into your house or office to charge them.

Top speed is limited to 28 mph for both scooters. The range is about 43 miles. The charge time for the battery pack is about two hours for a full charge according to the video below. This sounds like a killer commuter scooter, and if you live in an urban environment, I could see these being a fantastic option.

These won’t be sold in the U.S. but I’d like to see them or something like them here soon. The Type S costs 62,900 baht (about $2,018). The Type X costs 65,900 baht (about $2,114). That’s some super affordable transportation, especially when you factor in that the maintenance costs are practically nothing.

    I agree. I think the first manufacturer to make an aggressive US move for affordable electric scooters, will reap large benefits. Put that in your fortune cookie!!

      I’d love to see Honda do it. I know the company has been playing around with dirt bikes, and I bet it could put out a scooter with these kinds of range and performance numbers. They could even use the Metropolitan and Ruckus as bases. Just add an electric powertrain.

    I think a typo crept into the article. I doubt that these scooters have 1750/2020 Kw motors (-; … You probably meant 1750 W / 2020 W (and incidentally, the power unit Watt should be capitalized, but the k-prefix shouldn’t be).

      Right you are! Maybe wishful thinking on my part? Haha.
