Triumph has started collaborating with various industries to set a strong footprint in every league. One such inevitable future is electric which Triumph is ready to enter. Triumph will soon be launching its first electric two wheel, tagged as Project TE-1. The two-year project is a joint effort by Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain Ltd. and WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group) from the University of Warwick, to develop electric motorcycles for Triumph. The project TE-1 is co-funded by Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) of the UK Government.
Triumph’s Chief Product Officer, Steve Sargent said, “Our future product strategy is focused on delivering the most suitable engine platforms for the changing landscape of customer needs, and we see a Triumph electric powertrain as a significant requirement alongside our signature twin and triple cylinder engines. As part of our electric motorcycle initiative, Project Triumph TE-1 represents an exciting collaboration that will provide valuable input into our future line-up.”
