Tokyo, Terra Motors Corporation, Japan’s leading innovator of electric two- and three-wheelers, will unveil “A4000i” at 2014 EICMA Show in Milan, 6-9 November. They will be the first Japanese electric motorcycle manufacture to break into the European market with full force.

Toru Tokushige, CEO of Terra Motors said, “Terra Motors has had the largest market share in Japan and expanded into Asian countries. However, demands for electric motorcycles are increasing rapidly in Europe, because of the concern for energy and environment. Today, we are pleased to finally announce our entry into European market.”

At first Terra Motors expands into Italy.

Terra Motors will start to market A4000i in Italy in partnership with Spesso Srl. Then, it plans to make distributor agreements in 3-5 European countries within the year, with the aim of manufacturing their products early in Europe.

“We are very excited that the distribution of Terra Motors electric vehicles in Europe will start in Italy with our company. We believe that other than introducing cost- effective and pollution free vehicles, the quality of Terra Motors’ products will make the difference in this evolving industry, finally providing a quality product that can be a real game changer in urban transportation” said Francesco Possio, Spesso’s EV Division Manager.

One of the main functions of A4000i is the world’s first smartphone connectivity with its powertrain. A4000i will be the flagship model to change European people’s perception towards electric scooters. In addition, Terra Motors will also displays, “BIZMOII” which fully satisfies the needs of commercial use with the range of 150km on a charge at EICMA.

Terra Motors will expand their customer base in Europe to achieve their vision of “leading innovations with electric vehicles in creating clean & sustainable society”.
