A Japanese two wheeler manufacturing giant company is planning to launch its new Honda Benly e Electric Scooter in India. For this Benly e-scooter, Honda is focusing on the B2B segment where pickup and deliveries are the primary objective.
Already Honda had revealed their plan a few months ago for their Benly Scooter launch to the Indian automotive community. This new scooter comes with a green number plate with white front, it has head-scratching.
The green number plate shows that the scooter is a finished product but not for sale and it is available for testing. Because the red plate always says that the vehicles are test mules.
The white front in that green number plate fuels further confusion too. Honda Benly e-electric scooter is made for B2B segment to target goods carriers. But commercial EVs should get a yellow font on the green number plate and not white, signifying that it is a passenger EV.
