Brammo, the electric motorcycle maker, has begun production in Europe. This is a very welcome move and arguably Europe could represent a better market for their product then the USA. Hopefully EU states will begin to extend their electric vehicle subsidies to PTW, realising that a 4 wheel car, and all the production that goes into it, will never really be 'green'.
Below is the full statement from Brammo!
Brammo Inc., a global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, is proud to announce that production of its award-winning motorcycles is now under way at the Flextronics production facility in Sàrvàr, Hungary.
The newest Brammo production line is capable of producing 660 motorcycles a month and will initially produce the Brammo Enertia and Enertia Plus for North American, European and Asian customers.
Craig Bramscher, CEO and Founder of Brammo said; "Now that our new facility has begun production, we have a significant number of customer and fleet orders that we will be fulfilling this year." Bramscher added; "It’s been a very satisfying year with customer orders, new dealers and now production all gaining momentum much faster than anticipated."
The Brammo production facility in Sàrvàr is almost certainly the most advanced electric motorcycle assembly line in the world and it sets new standards for quality and efficiency. Brammo’s focus on designing for commercialization and quality ensures that its award-winning motorcycles are extremely reliable and can be serviced quickly and easily by skilled motorcycle technicians.
Brian Wismann, Director of Product Development at Brammo Inc., said; "After 8 months of solid, concerted effort on both sides we have reached this milestone, and I couldn’t be more proud of the team. We have been extremely impressed with how much Flextronics brings to the table in the way of manufacturing and quality processes owing to their vast experience as a Tier 1 automotive supplier and contract manufacturer. This partnership gives Brammo the ability to scale production and access global markets and the benefit of strengthening its reputation as the builder of the world’s finest electric motorcycles."
