Awhile back, Honda announced it would display a number of helpful robots alongside a new swappable, portable electric power system at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Now, the automaker has loosed its robotic fleet and introduced its Mobile Power Pack, along with vehicles it can power.
The Honda Mobile Power Pack is a swappable battery capable of storing 1 kWh or more, than can be used to power anything from electronic devices to vehicles. In addition, Exchangers can be set up in public places to allow for battery swapping and charging, meanwhile helping to stabilize the grid it's connected to. As examples of uses for the portable energy system, Honda showed its PCX Electric, a scooter powered by the mobile power pack, and the 4W-Vehicle concept, based on the Honda Pioneer 500 side-by-side ATV.
