Honda showcased the Mobile Power Pack World at the 2018 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, USA. It is ideal to recharge Honda's electric vehicles like the PCX Electric.

The Honda Mobile Power Pack stores surplus electricity generated from renewable natural energy sources. It is then used on a shared platform, allowing it to be utilized in various ways for powering electric vehicles or electronic products. The Power Pack Exchanger concept works as a charging station for batteries. The Exchanger Concept can also be linked together to power larger scale platforms like electric vehicles. The Power Pack comes in both indoor and outdoor versions.

Coming to the scooter, the PCX Electric employs the company's independently-developed 'high output' electric motor. The scooter uses the brand's Mobile Power Pack to power the motor. The Power pack is swappable too, allowing the user to recharge quickly. The scooter is planned for Asia-wide release, including Japan, this year. The Japanese manufacturer showcased the PCX Electric at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in October.
