ALYI Sharing Economy EV Model Receives Validation With $2.4B Canoo SPAC Merger
Dallas, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - August 19, 2020) - Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTC Pink: ALYI) today highlighted the latest electric vehicle industry news about subscription electric van startup, Canoo Holdings going public through a SPAC merger with Hennessy Capital Acquisition IV. The deal values Canoo at $2.4 billion.
Similar to ALYI's sharing economy business model targeting its ReVolt Electric Motorcycle for deployment into a Ride Share solution in Africa, Canoo plans to make its electric van available through subscription.
The number of U.S. adults participating in the sharing economy is expected to grow from 44.8 million reported in 2016 to 86.5 million next year accounting for $335 billion in revenue by 2025. Subscription eCommerce has grown more than 100 percent per year since 2016.
ALYI currently has an initial $20 million electric motorcycle order and an additional letter of intent for a $30 million contract. Both agreements cover six-year durations resulting in an overall $300 million revenue opportunity for ALYI.

With electric vehicle market interest at an all-time high, ALYI management currently reports that it has entered into discussions for additional fleet orders that could substantially increase its current $300 million revenue opportunity doubling the current outlook and potentially seeing the outlook even higher than twice the current $300 million revenue opportunity.
ALYI has entered into an agreement to receive a $25 million investment from RevoltTOKEN to fund ALYI's electric mobility initiative in Africa leading with the ReVolt Electric Motorcycle. The investment is part of a RevoltTOKEN planned initial cryptocurrency offering (ICO) intended to raise $100 million for an overall investment into ALYI's electric mobility initiative in Africa.
Over two years ago, ALYI piloted an electric motorcycle that in its first rendition was a BMW R71 clone retrofitted with an electric motor. The BMW R71 is a breathtaking iconic image popularized through decades of frequent Hollywood screen appearances in addition to the real engineering breakthroughs that maintain the bike's relevance.
The market opportunity initially considered for the ReVolt Electric Motorcycle encompassed a target audience of clean energy enthusiasts drawn to the iconic image. While that market remains in ALYI's sites, the much larger target market opportunity involves dominating a core component of the everyday transportation sector in Africa - motorcycle taxis or Boda-bodas.
Iconic design alone would not make the ReVolt Electric Motorcycle a dominant competitor in the African motorcycle market. So began an intense and comprehensive engineering initiative to expand upon the engineering breakthroughs of the original BMW R71 motorcycle to make the ReVolt Electric Motorcycle the go-to option in the African market.
The ReVolt Electric Motorcycle today is an innovation feat. When ALYI unveils the production version of the ReVolt Electric Motorcycle, it will be an industry changing event. The ReVolt Electric Motorcycle is a connected, state of the art electric motorcycle, ergonomically optimized for its target market while still maintaining an iconic look.
ALYI expects to be in production later this year.
