Zero Motorcycles growing rapidly in France

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 4.16.41 AM

While it is still impossible to know the real sales numbers for electric motorcycles in the USA, they are slowly becoming available for foreign markets.

In France, for example, sales of Zero electric bikes for the first 4 months of 2014 reached 17 units, against 4 units for the same period in 2013, an increase of 325%! It is the result of Zero’s big effort to expand its distribution channel in Europe.

Zero has now 5 distributors in France: Paris, Toulouse, Monaco, Strasbourg and Rouen. In Germany there are now 13 dealerships selling Zero motorcycles; 5 in Holland, 4 in Spain, 3 in Belgium, 2 in Austria, and 1 each in Luxembourg, Switzerland and the isle of Jersey.

The numbers for France make us optimistic, and it will be interesting to follow the sales of Zero bikes in Europe. We will try to report the data as they become available.

    I hope the customer service will be improved because I met some early adopters in France and they are very disapointed with that point. Zero Motors was unable to find a way to fix the problem with their motorbike and it’s very bad for the brand’s reputation…
    I’d like to buy a Zero one day, but for the moment I’m waiting for better feedbacks…

    Thanks for sharing Yoann. Since the news is dated April 1,
    I hope it is not an April fools day joke!

      It’s not, I saw the motorbike in the street in Strasbourg and I saw on the Facebook of Lionel Augier a lot of picture of it :-)
