Electric Motorcycles

posted in: EV News | 0

Alongside the rapidly growing electric car market, electric motorbikes are an advancing technology that is becoming more accessible and competitive.

Many countries have already announced the year that internal combustion engines will be banned. With that being a period between 2025-2035, fully electric mobility seems to be distant. However, at the end of 2018 cumulative global plug-in sales passed 5 million units. Therefore, electrification is closer than you think. Electric motorcycles of course, couldn’t be excluded from the EVolution.
