"Imposed nonsense": Motorcycle manufacturer expects electromobility
Authors-Union Mobility / KTM Electromobility: KTM boss exercises criticism
The phalanx of the Mahner grows: according to Stellantis boss Carlos Tavares, Mr. About the Empire of the former Chrysler, Fiat and PSA brands, now finds the Austrian Stefan Pierer hard words about the politically desirable electromobility. The entrepreneur is one of the richest men Austria, he leads the two-wheeled group KTM, heads the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM) and has been involved in the industrial association of his country for years.
KTM boss: "Electromobility is a nonsense"
In an interview with the Motorsport website Speedweeks, Stefan Pierer clears history, the industry would have liked this change, unmistakable: "Electromobility is a nonsense that is pushed by scientifically uneducated politicians. An imposed nonsense." And he explains why: "For a Moto-GP motorcycle, which runs a RenDistance today with 20 liters today, one would need a 500 kilogram of heavy battery to achieve comparable performance and range."Incidentally, the energy needed by the electric racing motorcycles in the Moto-E series are derived diesel generators, which are in the paddock, reveals pier. And he refers to the precious raw materials needed for the production of e-mobile.

However, the KTM boss not only asks the sustainability of e-mobility, also shows a different way: "The synthetic fuel is the solution, not the electric drive. Because this fuel is CO2-free."What you can not assert from the European electricity grid.Anyway, the motorcycle industry has agreed on this path: While the two-stroke in the small scooters, mopeds and moped moons, the motorcycles remained from 11 kW / 15 hp at the burner. Because those can be operated with CO2-neutral E-Fuels: "There are very clear development plans between the manufacturers," says Pierer.
E-Fuels as a better solution?
You have "in contrast to the automotive industry globally a clear idea of where the journey goes".So Pierer’s resumption of clarity leaves nothing to be desired: "We can go forever with burners." And he knows where he speaks of he offers his company even two e-terrain motorcycles and electrically powered MiniCrossers for the offspring. (Aum / Jens Meiners)
