Schneider Electric revs up for hybrid motorcycle challenge

Schneider Electric will partner with custom motorcycle manufacturer Orange County Choppers (OCC) to design and build the first hybrid motorcycle in OCC history.

Designed through a collaboration of Schneider Electric employees and the OCC design team, the Schneider Electric custom chopper will exemplify the company’s efforts to make energy solutions safe, reliable, efficient, productive and green.

Amelia Huntington, president of Schneider Electric US says: “Schneider Electric is challenging Orange County Choppers to build a custom motorcycle that will support our company mission of helping people make the most of their energy.

“This hybrid motorcycle will employ a built-in intelligent energy management system that will allow it to be more efficient and productive by considering multiple variables to select the best energy source available.

“Schneider Electric employs the same management methodology to help our customers do more while using less energy in buildings, data centers, industry and residential markets. As one of the premier builders of custom motorcycles, Orange County Choppers will bring an unprecedented level of expertise and creativity to showcasing our mission through their design.”

“The goal is that the Schneider Electric hybrid
chopper will be capable of traveling farther, without refueling or recharging, than any other OCC bike in history,” says the founder of Orange County Choppers Paul Teutul, Sr.

“The ability to help design and build a hybrid motorcycle of this calibre is a unique opportunity and our team is up to the challenge.”
