According to a company statement, Swag EV (Supreme Wagon Automotive Group Electric Vehicle) motorcycles “are environmentally friendly and suit every lifestyle, from city life to the great outdoors”.
The motorcycles come with removable batteries that can be plugged into an electric socket for charging and “take only 2-3 hours to fully charge. They can cover a distance of 80-90 kilometres on a full charge”.
The launch event was joined by Toni Rakkaen and Baifern – Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul – together with motorcycle expert and motorsport event emcee John Rider – Ariyapong Charoensuk.
Swag EV rolled out two flagship models – the Type-X and the Type-S. The 2000W brushless hub-motors were developed by Bosch, a leader in automobile technology from Germany, and delivers impressive acceleration, the company said.
The motorcycles also come with a detachable 60-volt 26 AH battery from Samsung.
“Swag electric motorcycles are equipped with high-performance lithium-ion batteries, as well as other modern technologies developed for lightweight yet powerful electric motorcycles. Both models are now available at Swag EV’s showroom on the 2nd floor of Siam Square One. The Type-S model is priced at Bt62,900, while the Type-X costs Bt65,900,” the firm added.
“The future of electric mobility is here and we are honoured to officially launch our products and services in Thailand,” executive director Janson Chen said. “Swag EV was created on the idea of wanting to bring smarter, better mobility to urban life without the consequences of damaging the environment. We are not just a motorcycle manufacturer: our main focus lies on cutting edge IoT technologies and creative branding collaboration with designers and celebrities. We strongly believe the EV industry is growing rapidly in Southeast Asia and we wish to position ourselves among one of the most important players,” he added.
Said motorcycle expert Ariyapong: “I always use a motorcycle because it is convenient and it’s faster in traffic. I love the specifications of Swag EV because they use Bosch motors, while the very important battery is made by Samsung. The prices are also very reasonable, and the motorcycles are registered, so I think they are very interesting choices.”
Swag EV was founded in Singapore.
