The electric motorcycle sector is experiencing its watershed moment, with registrations soaring by over 85%, in just three months, compared to March 2021’s figures, data shows. Super Soco has also cemented its position as the UK’s most popular electric brand, with the new CPX holding a 21.7% market share as the top-selling electric motorcycle in the UK.
New research conducted by the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA), has found that the electric motorcycle industry has seen a dramatic increase in popularity with over 1,027 electric motorcycles registered by March 2022, compared to 551 by March 2021. This is an increase of over 86%.
Amidst the ongoing fuel crisis in the UK and rising prices crippling commuters’ wallets, the proliferation in electric registrations signifies the shift from a reliance on petrol to a more sustainable, safe electric alternative.
Commenting on the news Richard Jordan, CEO at Super Soco UK and UK CEO at GreenMo UK said: “With fuel costs astronomically high, now is the time for electric vehicles to become the norm for personal transport within the UK. The increase in sales of electric motorcycles in the last 12 months underlines the change in public perception towards this method of transport.
“People have now realised the opportunity they pose, the money they will save, and their contribution towards the UK’s net-zero goals in 2030. As we continue with this progression in 2022, we aim to focus on changing the face of the last mile delivery industry. Our UK distributor and B2B partner, GreenMo, is already supplying top delivery services such as Just Eat, Deliveroo, and Getir. Over 70% of CPX sales are for the last mile delivery industry, indicating that this is the natural choice for fleet and delivery companies. Electric is the sensible way forward for the fleet industry and it is time for businesses to start as they mean to go on and implement long-term sustainable solutions, fully incorporating electric motorbikes into their fleet.”
