With three new Enduro motorbikes, the Civic Agents’ electric fleet is complete

The bikes join the rest of the Civic Agents’ fleet, which is now completely electric

These three Volta enduro motorbikes join the six Scutum motorbikes and the Renault Zoe car, in service since last November, to make up the vehicle fleet of Barcelona’s Civic Agents. The move makes the fleet 100% electric one year earlier than expected.

The motorbike is a Volta BCNForest, which has a battery capacity of 3 to 4 kWh and can travel up to 100 km, giving it a very high range, and it can be fully recharged in two hours.

Less pollution, more energy-saving

The initiative for the Barcelona Municipal Services (B:SM) fleet to go electric began in 2016, and currently, 69 of its 109 motorbikes are already electric. The gradual replacement of the fleet demonstrates B:SM’s firm commitment to electric mobility, a sustainable system that contributes to improved mobility, and to the reduction of CO2 emissions and noise pollution, which all promotes respect for the environment.
It is anticipated that by the first quarter of 2019, the entire B:SM motorcycle fleet will be electric.

Catalan technology

Volta Motorbikes is a Figueres company founded in 2010 with the aim of using environmentally friendly technology in motorcycles and providing solutions to pollution problems. In 2017, the company was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in the Mobility category, for its motorcycle design.

The rest of the motorbikes in the fleet are from SILENCE by Scutum, a Catalan company founded in 2011 with the aim of improving quality of life in cities with innovative 100% sustainable vehicles. The company designs, develops and manufactures two- and three-wheel electric scooters, providing a real, eco-friendly alternative and a product completely adapted to market demand.
