Opportunities in electric powersports

Opportunities in electric powersports

Whether we’re talking about cars, trucks, boats, rockets, whatever – EV transportation today is all about taking advantage of the opportunities that are positioned for the taking. Energy storage has evolved to the point where turning the status quo electric is easy. Electric roller skates? Sure! eMoonBoots and eTrampolines? Someone is figuring those out right now. And the opportunities in the world of powersports are no different.

For powersports dealers, this is an opportunity, writes Steve Peihl in our sister brand Motorcycle & Powersports News.

“Dealers looking for additional revenue should embrace a world that has motorcycles, along with bicycles and a whole range of electric-powered vehicles, because those are the products in our customer’s garages,” says Marc McAllister of Tucker Powersports.

Peihl continues: “Bicycle riders love their bicycles, and more people are joining them with e-bikes. That kid down the street with his skateboard has lots of other people around him — some on electric skateboards — who are using them to commute to work or shred some trails. E-power products are opening the door to recreation and transportation opportunities we’re never had before.

“If you question whether this e-mobility movement is real, guess who owns Spin electric scooters? It’s the same company that built your F-150 pickup. Electric scooters are serious fun, but the movement is real business.”
