In Viet Nam, electric vehicles still face many technological and technical challenges, including: performance compared to gasoline-powered vehicles; expenses for investment in facilities; requirements in the battery recycling process and legal framework; driving license and safety issues. Batteries are considered the key to make the popularization of electric motorcycles be a reality. From the point of view of user convenience, Honda Vietnam recognizes the need of battery standardization and building infrastructure for quick convenient battery exchange.

Honda Vietnam and Vietnam Post hope to actively contribute to a comprehensive roadmap of environmentally friendly activities as well as look forward to receiving close coordination from the Government, the Ministries and involved enterprises in the construction and development of appropriate infrastructure.
