Revving up for the Future: Energica Tapped by Global OEM to Power Up Electric Two-Wheel Off-Road Vehicles
Energica Motor Company, creator of the world’s best high-performance electric motorcycle, is teaming up with a major global original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to develop a new line of electric two-wheel off-road vehicles. Energica Inside, a business unit of Energica, will lead the design and engineering services.
“Our world needs to become net zero by 2050, which means transportation must become zero emission. I believe that the unique expertise and technology within Energica can help society achieve this goal faster,” says Livia Cevolini, CEO of Energica.
“That is why we formed the Energica Inside business unit, and we immediately attracted a lot of attention from large OEMs looking to offer EV solutions for urban mobility, agriculture, marine, and aviation”, concluded the executive.
Energica Inside, a design and engineering team, completed a feasibility study for an off-road electric vehicle platform. They assessed the OEM’s existing platform and battery pack, validating the definitive product battery specifications.
Energica’s powertrain, featuring the lightweight E2110 motor, provides maximum power of 120 kW at 13000 rpm. Energica Inside considered developing a new motor design to meet the OEM’s needs and integrated Energica’s pouch cells to boost performance. The recommended final configuration and integration meets the OEM’s design and aesthetic requirements.
“Energica Inside is ready to help OEMs achieve their climate goals and comply with regulations by electrifying their product lines – whether its tractors, watercraft, aircraft, or passenger and urban mobility vehicles,” stated Carlo Iacovini, General Manager Energica Inside.
“Our solutions are built around Energica’s industry-leading, proven EV design, engineering and technology”, concluded Carlo.
So, get ready to kick up some dirt with this exciting announcement of a new crop of high-performance off-road electric motorcycles that should hit the market in the near future.
