ION Mobility has used Siemens Digital Industries Software’s Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to bring its breakthrough ION M1-S electric motorbike to market, which will help accelerate the electrification of mobility in Southeast Asia.

ION Mobility is an auto-tech company on a mission to create and deliver affordable, desirable, and sustainable mobility for everyone. The state-of-the-art design and precision engineered M1-S motorbike is the culmination of three years of rigorous effort, from a dedicated team of designers, engineers, and technologists across four countries to provide a sustainable urban solution, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. It offers 150 km range, 4.3 kWh capacity with a less than 3-hours recharge time and a top speed of 105 km/h – all with 26 liters of under the seat storage and the compact agility that is demanded for a city bike.

ION Mobility used Siemens’ NX software from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio for styling, mechanical engineering and electric battery pack development, allowing the team to move from concept, through engineering and into manufacturing readiness. Siemens’ NX software and Teamcenter software for product lifecycle management will also form the basis of supplier collaboration as the ION M1-S moves into a production value chain. In addition, ION Mobility has also adopted Siemens’ Capital software for wire harness design and manufacturing. ION Mobility is supported by Siemens’ sales partner, Dream Technology System Pte Ltd.

Wu Xianyi, Chief Operating Officer, ION Mobility, stated, “Our design team has been working around the clock and across the globe to get the M1-S ready for production. The combination of Siemens’ NX, Teamcenter and Capital will allow us to bring together the disciplines of styling, mechanical engineering and wire harness design and to work cohesively as a team to ensure our products not only look amazing but perform as needed by our demanding target customers. All accomplished amidst the global pandemic.”

The Southeast Asia region is home to over 200 million combustion engine-powered two-wheelers. There is an increased urgency to shift towards electric motorbikes in the present, with more than 80 percent of households in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam owning motorcycles putting a burden on urban air quality and the environment.

“We are committed to creating great products and seamless user experiences for our customers. Our products combine advanced hardware and software technology with human-centered design to deliver smart electric motorbikes and energy storage solutions that are for everyone to use. Our vision is to lead our region’s transition towards a low-carbon economy with electric and electric mobility products for consumers across Southeast Asia. The Siemens Xcelerator portfolio allows us to move rapidly from concept to production-ready product in the timeframe that start-ups require, allowing us to get ahead of the market and define new market categories,” said James Chan, CEO and Founder, ION Mobility.

Alex Teo, Vice President & Managing Director, South East Asia, Siemens Digital Industries Software, said, “ION Mobility’s work to address Southeast Asia’s mobility challenge is testament to how the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio is enabling innovators and pioneers in SMBs to take their ideas from concept to product using the same world-class tools that only much larger organizations previously had access to. We’re delighted to see how ION Mobility is bringing the ION M1-S to market and how the accessibility of Siemens Xcelerator is enabling true innovation across so many industries.”

Siemens Digital Industries Software helps organisations of all sizes digitally transform using software, hardware and services from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform. Siemens' software and the comprehensive digital twin enable companies to optimise their design, engineering and manufacturing processes to turn today's ideas into the sustainable products of the future.
