Ideanomics subsidiary Energica selected by a global OEM to develop a new electric platform for off-road vehicles

3 March 2023

Ideanomics, a global company focused on accelerating the commercial adoption of zero-emission vehicles, today announced that its subsidiary Energica Motor Company  maker of the world's best high-performance electric motorcycle, and a major global original equipment manufacturer (OEM) are collaborating to develop a new line of electric two-wheel vehicles. Energica Inside, a business unit of Energica, is providing 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."

Energica Inside provided a feasibility study to identify a final configuration for an off-road electric vehicle platform. The company's engineers and designers performed a technical assessment of the OEM's existing platform and battery pack to validate the definitive product battery specification.

  • At the heart of the final configuration is Energica's powertrain, which includes the E2110 motor, a liquid-cooled permanent magnet electric motor weighing just 27kg and a maximum power of 120 kW (161 hp) at 13000 rpm.
  • Energica Inside. Team discussed potentially developing a new motor design to meet the OEM's needs.
  • To increase performance, Energica Inside worked on integrating Energica's pouch cells in the existing battery case.
  • The recommended final configuration and integration meets the OEMs existing layout and design specifications, including aesthetics.

"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."

Energica Inside already has several projects underway, including a collaboration with U.S. electric tractor manufacturer Solectrac. Energica Inside is helping Solectrac develop its next generation of electric tractors.

With ongoing support from Ideanomics, Energica is accelerating the disruption of the global two-wheeler market with its high-performance electric motorcycles. Ideanomics is solving the complexity of fleet electrification, offering fleet operators everything they need to electrify faster, easier and more affordably, all in one place.
