Artroniq, a Malaysian investment holding company, and United E-Motor, an Indonesian electric motorcycle manufacturer, have jointly announced the imminent introduction of the United E-Motor electric two-wheeler brand in Malaysia. This launch event is scheduled to take place on October 21, 2023, at Pavilion Bukit Jalil.
During this event, the company intends to unveil two electric scooter models and reveal its expansion plans for the local network. One notable model in the United E-Motor lineup is the TX3000 electric scooter, positioned as a versatile “all-terrain electric vehicle.”
The announcement event at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia was attended by notable figures, including Indonesian Ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Indera Harmono, Chairman of the Asian Trade, Tourism, and Economic Council Budihardjo Iduansjah, Malaysian Member of Parliament Jaziri Alkaf Abdillah Suffian, PT Terang Dunia Internusa Director Andrew Mulyadi, and Artroniq’s Chief Financial Officer, Marcus Chin.
According to information on the United E-Motor Indonesian website, the TX3000 electric scooter boasts dimensions of 1,890 mm in length, 765 mm in width, and 1,195 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 1,380 mm. This model is equipped with two 60-volt, 28 Ah lithium batteries, providing a maximum range of 120 km. Charging from 0 to 80% can be achieved in four hours. It has a weight of 118 kg and a maximum load capacity of 167 kg, with a top speed of 90 km/h, including a reverse function up to 5 km/h.
The electric scooters will be locally assembled at the Batu Kawan facility in Penang, with a production target of 2,000 units across two models in 2024, as disclosed by Artroniq’s CFO, Marcus Chin. The assembly process is set to commence in November this year, following the launch event next month. Initially, the electric two-wheelers will be manufactured exclusively for the Malaysian market, with no current plans for export, according to Chin.
The United E-Motor electric scooter brand intends to establish a distribution and service network in Peninsular Malaysia’s northern, central, and southern regions, specifically in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Johor. Service centers will operate under the Artroniq brand, as confirmed by Artroniq’s CFO, Chin.
