The first electric motorcycles are set to arrive on the market in 2018.
Honda and Nissan are working on a new generation of motorcycles that will replace their existing hybrid-electric motorcycles, the company announced today.
The two Japanese manufacturers unveiled the new bikes at the Electric Mobility Summit in San Jose, Calif.
The new bikes will have the same battery and electric motor system as their electric motorcycles, but they will have a different powertrain, according to Honda.
The new bikes should start shipping in 2019.
The bikes, which will be called the Aerostar and are priced at $30,000, are a major step forward for the electric motorcycle industry.
They will replace the current generation of electric motorcycles with a hybrid-electrics, which have lower emission rates, according Honda.
Hybrid-electric bikes can travel up to 100 miles per charge and are equipped with an electric motor that drives the rear wheels and the electric motor in the front wheels.
Hybrid-electric cars also use a hybrid electric motor, but the front wheel drives the front passenger seat, while the rear wheel drives a battery that can be recharged by plugging into a wall outlet.
Hybrids are a cheaper alternative to electric motorcycles due to the fact that the battery is not electrically connected to the motor.
Hybrid cars also typically offer more range, but are less fuel-efficient, according the U.S. Department of Energy.
The announcement comes as the electric industry is growing rapidly.
The market for electric motorcycles has grown by 30 percent in the past year, and more than 20 companies are producing electric motorcycles in China, according Toews.
In addition, electric motorcycle sales are growing in the U, where the number of electric motorcycle registrations has surpassed the U’s.
Hyundai Motor said in a statement that it will make its first electric motorcycle, the Ego, for the 2018 model year.
Hyundai Motor also said it will build its first production electric motorcycle for the U in 2019, according that statement.
The news comes amid increasing interest in electric motorcycles.
The electric-only electric vehicle market grew by about 30 percent over the past 12 months.
The U.K. is the only country where an electric motorcycle is not allowed, and the U.-China Trade Agreement prohibits China from selling electric motorcycles to its residents.
