Siemens Unveils the First Custom 'Green' Electric Chopper
First Electric Bike Made by Famed Orange County Choppers; Will Be Featured on Hit TV Show and Donated to Charity
NEW YORK, Aug. 12 - Siemens (NYSE: SI) announced today that it has teamed up with renowned custom motorcycle manufacturer Orange County Choppers to build the first custom electric motorcycle. The "Siemens Smart Chopper," which will be featured on the hit TV show American Chopper, was unveiled today in an event at the Time Warner Center.
"We wanted to build this unique chopper to raise environmental awareness and reflect what the 69,000 employees of Siemens USA are doing to help America stay on the cutting edge of tomorrow's green economy," said Daryl Dulaney, President & CEO of Siemens Building Technologies. "Siemens is already very much a part of the fabric of America, and our portfolio is one of the greenest in the business. Green is not marketing hype for us; it is in our DNA."
"If energy or energy efficiency is involved--Siemens is involved," said Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Energy, Inc. "Our technologies are helping to more efficiently and cleanly produce, deliver, consume and conserve energy. And these technologies are here today. This bike represents the spirit of innovation and passion we have for seeking sustainable solutions for our planet."
Orange County Choppers, a leading manufacturer of custom motorcycles, built the Siemens Smart Chopper over the course of a month. Siemens also developed a compatible Smart Grid-ready charger which communicates with the utility to enable charging when the electricity is most affordable.
