NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 23: Harley Davidson Livewire motorcycles, Harley Davidson's first electric bike, sits on display outside the Harley Davidson Store on June 23, 2014 in New York City. The Livewire has 74 horsepower and a top speed of 92 miles per hour.

Specifically, electric motorcycle tax credits are now $7,500, while the one for e-bikes reached $1,500. This effort clearly shows that the United States is now entering a new level in the EV industry.

Zero-emission vehicles are currently among the main solutions of various countries across the globe to reduce the rising carbon dioxide issue. On the other hand, various independent manufacturers are also trying their best to offer the most efficient electric vehicles.
