Electric motorcycles have gained presence in the Spanish fleet of two wheels and already represent 2.24% of it, which means 74,705 units circulate on Spanish streets and highways, according to a study by Somos Seguros, the dissemination initiative of the insurance culture, in collaboration with the National Association of Companies in the Two-Wheel Sector (Anesdor) and Information Technologies and Networks for Insurance Entities (Tirea).
The report ‘Two-wheelers by engine types. Data 2020’ concludes that there are currently 40,057 motorcycles in operation in Spain, as well as 17,440 mopeds and 17,208 scooters that use an electric motor.
In the largest cities, those with more than half a million inhabitants, these vehicles constitute 2.91% of the local fleet of two wheels, while in municipalities with between 10,000 and 50,000 inhabitants, electric motorcycles account for 2.65 % of the park of two wheels.
Likewise, the province that has, in relative terms, more motorcycles and mopeds that do not emit gases is Madrid (5.43% of the park), behind the capital are Barcelona (3.27%) and the Balearic Islands (2 .65%).
However, in an analysis by municipality, Barcelona is in the lead (5.78%). In the city of Madrid, this type of vehicle represents 2.14%, while Palma occupies the third position, with another 1.96%.
Despite this, it should be noted that half of the country’s electric motorcycles and mopeds belong to companies, mainly home delivery companies and rental firms.
