Sustainability. With the automotive industry moving towards a transition to EVs, we went ahead to have a look as to where all this started and to our surprise, it goes way back than our wildest imaginations. The first patent for an electric motorcycle came out in 1895 by Ogden Bolden featuring a brushed hub motor. A close second is the electric motorcycle built by James O Brien in 1896 in image 3 The 2rd image is the patent by H.W Libbey in 1897 displaying an off board motor. But it's important to note that the very first instance of electric propulsion was on a tricycle by Monsieur Trouvë in 1881. Why didn't they catch up as fast as the IC engine motorcycles, is an interesting question. But you can't really say electric lacks history can you? . . . . #sustainability #electric #early #pioneer #ev #electricmotorcycle #electricbicycle #emobility #history #roots #culture #motorcycles #motorheads #motorcyclecommunity #motorcyclediaries #future #mobility #elementalmotorworks

Guess what department does this week’s #FactFriday ? Many pictures of people behind computers🧐... Software! All the code of the car is written by our software departments from the previous 6 years. Since the first Line Of Code (LOC) was written, 4 million line changes have been made to make the software it is today. Can you imagine? To achieve this, you would have to write, edit or remove at least 1 line per minute, winter or summer, day or night, 24/7, 2464 days long…. ⏱ * #Forze #Hydrogen #Electric #Racing #Student #Team #Software
