It's been a long, hard road for Mission Motorcycles. And it's been just as long and hard for the company's fans and would-be clients, who have been left waiting for their high-powered, stunningly beautiful and technologically advanced electric motorcycles to actually hit dealerships for what seems like ages. To such fans and would-be clients, we have good news, and we have bad news.
First, the bad: Mission is now promising to deliver its first motorcycles to customers in the second or third quarter of 2015. Last we heard, bikes were expected to hit garages across the country right about... well, right about now, actually, in the summer of 2014. Clearly, that's not going to happen, and that's a shame.
Now for the good: Mission Electric, the newly renamed company born from the Mission Motors and Mission Motorcycles duo (which had previously been a single entity...) is hiring, and is now, apparently, branching out into the four-wheeled realm. In fact, the company's website shows a McLaren supercar under the Mission Automotive umbrella, which is kinda interesting, and it also suggests that Mission-powered boats and heavy-duty machinery are also in the offing.
Of course, all of this should be taken with a full shaker of salt until an actual product from any of Mission's garages actually lands in the garage of a paying customer. In any case, feel free to check out the company's website here.
