What are Husqvarna's plans for electric mobility? In this series of articles, we have collected the motorcycles and projects on which the main motorcycle manufacturers are working and their programs until 2030.

Husqvarna's plans for electric mobility - It's official, the electric motorcycle revolution is coming, albeit quietly, and all the major motorcycle manufacturers have a plan for electric mobility. The phenomenon has been around for a while, but in 2022 the entire market is gaining momentum. At the moment the sales are driven by scooters and motorcycles equivalent to 125cc and 50cc with thermal engines, but in the coming years also the sales of electric motorcycles will be increasing.
Convincing motorcyclists that zero-emission riding can offer the same thrills as current combustion engine bikes is no easy task. At the moment, two-wheeled vehicles with electric propulsion will represent around 4% of the European market in 2022, much less than in the automotive sector. However, this share has more than doubled compared to 2021, thanks to new models with performance similar to those with traditional propulsion, and to the eco-incentives present in some European countries.
This is a figure that will continue to grow as public perception - and laws - continue to move towards a greener future, with the next two years seeing some major motorcycle manufacturers enter the electric mobility market; let's see which ones.

The future electric motorcycles of the world's leading manufacturers: HUSQVARNA

Coming from a Scandinavian country and region that invest heavily in infrastructure and the promotion of electric vehicles, it is logical to expect Husqvarna to be positioned in the greenest part of motorcycling. The Swedish company has already announced two electric models: the Vektorr scooter and the E-Pilen motorcycle, the latter being Husqvarna's first original model under the ownership of KTM.
The Vektorr, based on the Bajaj Chetak, will hit the roads this year with an edgy and eye-catching look, followed by the E-Pilen, a low-displacement 125cc equivalent roadster that focuses on range for use in a rather urban environment. than on power.
