Saitama City, located within the Saitama Prefecture and about 25 km North of Tokyo, has begun a new chapter in its epic E-Kizuna Project. This initiative is all about providing an environment conducive to, well, saving the environment. Specifically, the city already has extensive infrastructure in place to provide convenient charging services for EV owners in a bid to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. Honda and Yamaha have now entered into a sort of technology-sharing triumvirate to help enable and shape this effort. How noble, you say? Maybe, but it’s in their best interest since Yamaha already has an E-Vino EV scooter based on its Italian-influenced ICE Vino, and Honda has EV development in the pipe as well. Though these two builders are traditional foes, both in their domestic markets and abroad, the cooperation we see here speaks highly of their corporate character and enviro-stewardship.
