It is clear that electric motorcycles have a big part to play in future transport needs as people move from combustion engine power to better forms of transport. A recent study by McKinsey consultants noted that their sales are most likely to grow to 40% of all motorcycle sales in Europe by 2020 - that's about 400,000 bikes per year. In places like California, the predictions are even higher.
Why is the market growing so quick? The advantages of EVs are many – they are energy efficient (convert up to 62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels compared to gasoline vehicles that only convert up to 21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power), environmentally friendly (no tailpipe pollutants and electricity from nuclear-, hydro-, solar-, or wind-powered plants causes no air pollutants), reduce oil consumption, and potentially save drivers' money in the long term. Governments recognise the significance of these factors and are advocating policies and incentives to encourage uptake of EVs.
We believe that now is the ideal time for new companies to enter the EV market, and we are launching the electric Čezeta Type 506 with this intention in mind and now we are seeking to build a network of Čezeta Authorised Partners in order to supply customers with sales and repair services.
We are seeking companies or individuals that have an interest in working as Sales and/or Service Partners. We expect some knowledge of EV technologies and experience in running a commercial business. Local language skills are essential for each territory as well as start-up capital of approximately €20.000 in funding for building stock and marketing activities. Additional funds for premises and staff are optional depending on your existing situation. Finally, you must be competant in English - all company communication is in English, but if you're reading this then you know that!
We welcome partnership proposals from anywhere in the world. However, specifically we want dealers for: Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Portugal and France. Exclusive rights for other EU countries will be offered to these dealers as appropriate linguistically e.g. Austria will be with Germany, Ireland will be with the United Kingdom etc. Outside Europe, we would welcome partnerships from any of the following countries: Russia, Japan, Sth. Korea, South Africa, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
We offer you generous discounts on our high-quality Type 506 electric motorcycle, made in the Czech Republic with superior performance and a chic retro look, customisable with a range of unique product accessories. It's design is already patented and more details are on this website. Our plan is to begin shipping these products to partners from August 2017.
For Service Partners, technical training and spare parts for warranty and maintenance will be available. English manuals will be supplied and mobile support offered where needed.
We envisage partners offering other products and services in addition to motorcycle sales to generate income. Significant high-margin profit is expected from financing, rentals, insurance, parts sales, accessories, Čezeta merchandising and annual checkups.
We will provide full support for marketing and merchandising and grant dealers exclusive rights to their territory to help achieve their sales target.
We plan to increase production significantly in the medium-term, offering growth in line with the projected increase in the electric vehicle market.
We are currently developing a full information package for potential partners, including legal terms of co-operation. If you would like to receive this information, then please email or call our CEO on firstname.lastname@example.org with some details about yourself and we will get back in touch with our information pack.
Thanks for your interest in Čezeta!
