Abstract

Owing to the GHG emission and fossil fuel consumption made by the vast amount of motorcycles, Taiwan Government raised the strategy to promote a hundred thousand electric scooters on road in four years. Electric scooter nowadays becomes much acceptable and marketable than ever by adopting detachable lithium-ion battery pack which makes the vehicle lighter to handle, and not necessarily rely on charging infrastructure. However, due to the safety issue of lithium-ion battery, the IDB (Industrial Development Bureau) of MOEA in Taiwan draws up a subsidization program that the detachable lithium-ion battery pack is mandatory required and need to pass safety test of TES-0B-01-01 (Lithium-ion battery pack test method of Taiwan Electric Scooter, based on BATSO-01) which includes electrical, mechanical and environmental tests. In parallel, the performance shall also meet target value set for different categories of vehicle.
