Energica Motor Company S.p.A. continues its expansion in the United States market with a new commercial agreement with Energica of New England. This new dealer is based in Gardner, Massachusetts and will service that state as well as Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
New England has seen a doubling of electric vehicle ownership and new charging station construction in the past two years, with over 30,000 EV vehicles in operation and 6,483 EV charging stations. Every state in the region has signed up to the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network with state-by-state programs and incentives to exponentially increase EV sales and grow the EV charging infrastructure to sustain them.
Massachusetts, as the third richest state in the United States, has committed the most of New England states. 300,000 electric vehicles are planned to be on the road by 2025, for a share of at least 23% of all new car purchases in that year. Furthermore Eversource Energy, New England’s largest power provider, plans to add 3,500 new public chargers.
“Unquestionably, the next major region in the U.S. to push electric aggressively will be the Northeast, especially New England.” stated Stefano Benatti, CEO, Energica Motor Company Inc. “We know that the adoption of electric cars will also benefit electric motorcycles, especially those, like ours, that can access DC Fast Charging stations”
“We are very excited about becoming a new Energica dealer in the Northeast. We see enormous potential for premium electric motorcycles in New England, where we see more and more electric vehicles and EV charging stations.” says Rob Swartz, Owner/Operator of Energica of New England.
