These figures are encouraging for the electric sector, but the market undoubtedly remains dominated by models with internal combustion engines. The European motorcycle market recorded a total of 532.980 new registrations in the first half of 2022, and just under 21.000 were electric motorcycles. Sure, the sales numbers of internal combustion motorcycles far exceed those of electric motorcycles, but Europe still recorded a 106,7% increase in sales of electric motorcycles in the first half of 2022.
As for mopeds, sales of electric models were 43.952 compared to the total of 134.478. In this particular segment, therefore, electric models represent a third of the total vehicles sold, with an increase of 24% compared to the first six months of 2021.
Without a doubt, electric motorcycles and scooters still have a long way to go, but the data shows that the growth path has begun.
