Created by fresh-air-loving engineers tired of wimpy electric vehicles, Current Motor Company is reinventing an American classic by making affordable, powerful electric motorcycles.
Founders Erik Kauppi and John Harding got to tinkering. The sparks flew and Current was born with a mission of turning gutless electric motorcycles into lean, mean, green machines.
In the shadow of gas guzzling automotive capital of Detroit, this Ann Arbor-based start-up is quietly roaring into the motorcycle marketplace.
Current’s eco-brainiacs have solved the problems normally associated with electric vehicles. Current motorcycles go faster (up to 75 mph), run longer (a range of 80 miles on a charge) and charge faster (4 hours to recharge from a standard household outlet).
While you’re saving the world on these hip EVs, you’re also saving money. Charging from a standard household outlet, it costs only 15 cents per mile to operate. Compare that to 60 cents per mile for a Prius. Bonus, the oil never needs to be changed.
Tree huggers and speed lovers delight! Now, riders can love the air and ride like the wind.
