Polestar, Volvo’s electric car brand, has strengthened its partnership with another Swedish company, CAKE. The two collaborated to design a new version of CAKE Makka, a small battery powered motorcycle.
The model, however, is suitable in the group of mopeds due to the power less than four kilowatts and the speed, which does not exceed 50 km / h.
- of Mecca reaches up to 45 km / h and has two driving lanes.
- Its electric motor produces 2.8 kW of peak power.
- The approximate range is 55 km per charge.
Images of a limited edition blue car – the inspiration for which is similar to Polestar’s O2 car – were released this week. Among the Mecca’s features is a type of “hub” that allows charging using energy from the automaker’s electric vehicles.
Although there is still no official launch date, it is expected that the car will start production only from 2026. The suggested price is US $ 5,300, about R4 28,300 in direct conversion.
The big news is that the model will be available for the first time in North America (who knows, Brazil may not be on the company’s radar in the coming years). Pre-sales started this Wednesday (14) via the Polestar online store.
This is the second two-wheeler EV to be introduced by the companies since entering into a commercial agreement last year. The first was also a Mecca moped, but it was finished in white (“matte snow“).
Best known in the street and city motorcycle business, CAKE has also recently introduced another interesting concept, an electric and autonomous ATV.
