“Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.” Elon Musk
“Repeated failures lower expectations. But someday you may surprise.” Mr. Mopedix
We have had two years of development of our own moped. Two years where we have experienced the joy of successful progress towards our goal and waves of despair while dealing with technical and design complications. Now we face our biggest challenge yet: final selection and tuning of parts and then homologation of the mopedix for road use. But we already know we can do it (unless it doesn’t work out…).
We’ll start taking first orders for the mopedix Electrix by the end of 2022.
Project milestones: how mopedix rose from the ashes
