Hello Electrom supporters, the day has finally come. We have a vehicle we are happy with, the testing is done, and we are ready to move to production of the Electrom.
In the next few days we will be contacting the Beta Test Backers and offering them the right-of-first refusal on their waitlist spot. As you may remember, the Beta Test Backers have the opportunity to claim one of the first five Electroms made.
After the Beta Test Electroms have been on the road for a few months we will collect feedback and, if needed, make adjustments. We will then take deposits and make the next round of bikes for the Platinum Backers, then the Gold Backers, and so forth. The hope is to have the Beta Test bikes in the hands of the new owners by the spring of 2021, but delivery may take place earlier.
The cost of this first run of Electroms will be $7100 USD. This is the price for a full kit*, without battery. The cost for one 72 volt, 20 amp-hour battery is approximately $800 USD. The Electrom has room for two of these batteries in the main fuselage, giving it a range of 60-100 km per battery depending on speed and terrain.
In order to move from the waitlist to the production queue, backers will need to place a 50% deposit. As we move through the production waitlist we will contact you to let you know when we will be able to accept your deposit.
Next week we will be sending out a link to a walk-through video of the new Electrom. Hopefully the video will answer any questions you may have about the Electrom and its specifications, but if not you can always e-mail follow-up questions.
*A full Electrom kit includes frame, fork all components, front fairing and rear tailbox. It is the whole bike except for the batteries.
