Ideanomics (Nasdaq: IDEX), a global company focused on accelerating the commercial adoption of electric vehicles (EV), today announced that its subsidiary Energica will provide 88 EsseEsse9+ motorcycles for the upcoming G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia. This is Energica’s largest single order to date and is valued at nearly $2 million.
“When G20 delegates arrive in Bali, they will be welcomed and escorted by a security detail riding Energica bikes. That means their first experience will be seeing zero-emission, high-performance vehicles in action,” says Livia Cevolini, Energica Motor Company CEO. “My hope is that this experience sticks with each delegate throughout the summit and in all discussions around climate change and transportation.”
The Indonesian National Police (Poiri) will use the Energica motorcycles to escort all international government delegates attending the summit. Indonesia will become the first country in the Asia-Pacific region to operate an electric motorcycle fleet, demonstrating its climate leadership and progress on its commitment to put 2 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025.
Energica signed an agreement with UTOMOCORP, one of Indonesia’s leading vehicle retail and distribution companies. The two companies expect to deliver the bikes to the Indonesian police force in early November.
“UTOMOCORP is proud to be able to provide the most advanced electric motorcycle for the Indonesian government as the vehicle used by the police force. Energica has been tested for quality and technology; it is in line with UTOMOCORP’s commitment to bringing quality and leading products with today’s developments. This is an initial stage and I hope that in the future we can supply more products, both for general and special needs,” says UTOMOCORP CEO, Denny Utomo.
Together, Ideanomics and Energica have introduced the new Experia motorcycle, expanded Energica’s global dealership network and production capacity, and launched the Energica Inside business unit to help more industries electrify faster.
“Since acquiring majority ownership of Energica in 2021, our goal has been to help grow their production and distribution capabilities,” said Ideanomics Mobility president Robin Mackie. “Today, we are seeing the work we’ve done together pay off – Energica is the only company capable of meeting such a large order of high-quality, high-performance electric motorcycles.”
Ideanomics is solving the complexity of fleet electrification by bringing together high-performance electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and financing solutions under one roof. The company views Energica as a flagship vehicle for the two-wheeler market and is committed to helping the company grow and develop new revenue streams. This includes enhancing Energica’s presence in the ASEAN region by establishing Treeletrik as an after-sales support partner and strategic sales partner.
