When we talk about electric mobility, we immediately think of cars. After all, in recent years there has been a very rapid evolution in this sector and there are more and more battery-powered cars on the road. In reality, however, the concept of “electric mobility” is much broader and more and more sectors related to the world of transport are electrifying.
The new electric mobility
In a few years it will not be unusual to see fully electric vehicles whizzing through the skies, in the water and more and more on the roads. Already today compared to years ago the increase has been incredible: in buying a means of transport, for any type of distance, more and more people evaluate the electric as the first choice. Obviously, there are some sectors more ready than others and with an already very wide offer, but we can the gap is destined to narrow a lot.
Electric motorcycles and scooters are growing
In cities, it is no longer uncommon to see electric scooters. In fact, more and more companies are proposing electric alternatives to 50 and 125 cc scooters. Means, therefore, suitable for urban mobility and for limited distances. Two-wheeled vehicles are increasingly appreciated, especially in large urban centers where they can access the areas often forbidden to models equipped with an endothermic engine.
Speech is a little different for electric motorcycles, whose technology is still “unripe”. Putting aside for a moment the prejudices about the absence of the sound of the exhaust terminal, an essential aspect for many motorcyclists, the performance is already very interesting because of the characteristics of the engines, increasingly technological. The limit that holds back many possible buyers lies in the autonomy still too limited due to the batteries that can not have, with current technology, an adequate capacity given the reduced space available. In any case, on the market there are interesting models such as those of Energica and Zero Motorcycles that can recharge from normal columns such as those of Plenitude + Be Charge.
The world of city transport is electrified
Those who live in big cities have probably already noticed this. Even public transport is progressively focusing on fully electric vehicles. Think, for example, of the city of Milan which wants to eliminate all diesel buses by 2030, replacing them with electric models. In this regard, ATM Milano has long signed an agreement with Solaris for the supply of several hundred electric buses that also have sophisticated security solutions. Speaking of commercial vehicles, the offer of electric vans and trucks is growing on the market.
Scooters and E-bikes
We cannot forget about all those products that fall into the category of electric micro mobility. We speak, therefore, of the electric scooters that have found space, with some controversy, within Italian cities or eBikes, increasingly appreciated for their flexibility of use.
Excellent means both to move easily and with a limited effort in the city, and to venture into some rough path in the mountains (obviously using a special model such as a mountain bike).
