Energica Motor Company, leading company of high-performing electric motorcycle and FIM Enel MotoE World Cup single manufacturer, signed new commercial agreement in Asia with Tree Technologies Sdn Bhd.
The new importer is located in Malaysia, and represents an excellent opportunity for Energica network development. Malaysia’s low carbon mobility blueprint 2021-2030, currently subject to final Cabinet approval, will drive larger participation in the electric vehicles (EVs) space by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Malaysia’s low carbon mobility blueprint key proposals broadly include a shift in vehicle taxation system (road tax/excise duty) based on vehicle carbon emission: BEVs involve 100 per cent import and excise duty exemption for complete built units (CBUs) up till 2022. On charging infrastructure, initially, 2,000AC charging points and 200 DC charging points will be set up as an immediate phase between 2020 and 2021.
“Tree Technologies is committed to contributing to the ASEAN region’s ultimate goal of decreasing the level of final energy consumption in the road transport sector by 2040. Hence, we are excited to be collaborating with Energica Motor Company to bring its high-performing electric motorcycles to the Malaysian market”, says its CEO, Datuk Viswananthan Menon.
“The new agreement with Tree Technologies Sdn Bhd represents for us a further stage in the development of the distribution network in Asia”. Says Giacomo Leone, Energica Sales & Field Marketing Director. “We are convinced that the best conditions exist for a significant increase in e-mobility, especially in this area”
