Title: BATTERY CASE STRUCTURE FOR ELECTRIC-POWERED VEHICLES, AND ELECTRIC-POWERED VEHICLE
Abstract:
Provided are: a battery case structure for electric-powered vehicles wherein restrictions on the size or the like of a battery mountable on electric-powered vehicles are alleviated, and the attaching/detaching operability is improved; and an electric-powered vehicle. A battery case structure (10) of a motorcycle (12) is equipped with: a cover member (50) which is disposed below the center in the longitudinal direction of a main frame (16) and rocks in the transverse direction of the vehicle; and a lower frame (54) which is connected to the main frame (16), and is disposed in such a manner as to go around the bottom of the cover member (50). The rocking of the cover member (50) causes a detachable opening (52) provided at the top of the cover member (50) to be close to or separated from the main frame (16). A battery (46) is detachably inserted into the cover member (50) through the detachable opening (52) separated from the main frame (16). When the detachable opening (52) is brought close to the main frame (16), the battery (46) housed in the cover member (50) is supported on the lower frame (54) and housed between the lower frame (54) and the main frame (16).
