For 2020, Husqvarna makes its first jump into electric mobility with the EE 5. According to the Austrian manufacturer, this machine is capable of holding its own against 50cc gas-powered machines making it an appropriate choice for youngsters with a competitive spirit who also might want to learn to ride in an environmentally friendly way. Two hours of beginner-level ride time (25 minutes for serious racers) is claimed output from a full 907Wh lithium-ion battery, and charging time is a reasonable 70 minutes. Key features include its electric motor that claims to produce a peak power of 5kW, six ride modes, WP Xact suspension, and an adjustable seat height.
