EMotion – lighthouse project for the mobility of all generations

We were part of the lighthouse sponsored project “EMotion”. Together with the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, we developed an electrically powered two-wheeler in the L-category (Class A1, 125cc). The aim of the research team was to design an inexpensive, energy-efficient and lightweight mobility solution on two wheels for use in urban areas that will contribute to a noticeable reduction in CO2 emissions. This was done by looking at the full life cycle in order to elicit potential areas for improvement and create the optimum components. These include the electronic and structural components, the electricity mix and the use of sustainable powders made from recycled materials for manufacturing plastic components.
