The year 2018 has finished very well for Silence. After many efforts and joint work of the whole team, we are already the leading electric motorcycle company in Spain and Europe. During this year we have reached the goal of tripling our profits to 14 million euros. We manufacture 3,000 bikes in 2018 and deliver some 2,900, with the mobility subsidiary of Acciona as the first customer of the year thanks to a macro-order of 1,200 units. Up to now, our business in Silence was destined to the big accounts, fundamentally companies of motosharing like Scoot, Molo or the mentioned one of Acciona; delivery companies such as Aravinc, Correos or Cooltra; and municipal services such as mobility agents in large cities, among others.
In addition, we carried out a capital increase of 8.6 million euros that was fully subscribed by our shareholders, a clear sign of their confidence in the company. As stated by Carlos Sotelo, our CEO, “We are very satisfied because we have fulfilled our expectations and have even exceeded the announced budget”.
The new year comes with the arrival of the new bike for the individual, the S01. A motorcycle equivalent to 125cc, with a range of 115 km and a maximum speed of 100 km / h. Managed by a mobile app, at the end of the first semester of 2019, it will reach the market in stores and with the deliveries of the exclusive pre-reservations already launched in http://preorder.silence.eco
