Savic Motorcycles is finally preparing to start deliveries of its C-Series Alpha electric motorcycle to customers in Australia. The company started working on this model in 2016 and faced numerous challenges through the years, but persevered and successfully crowdfunded $800,000 USD to finalize production in May of 2023.

Sixthreezero has a new electric trike with a tadpole design (two wheels in front, one in the back). This adds considerable stability, especially since this model —creatively named the “Two Front Wheel Electric Trike”— has steering linkage that allows it to lean into turns.

If you prefer your trikes to be a bit more extreme, perhaps you’ll like the Tectus: an all-terrain, all-weather mobility scooter. Made by Canadian e-bike company Daymak, The Tectus has a fully enclosed cockpit, with premium options including air conditioning, GPS tracking, and finger scan keys.

Husqvarna’s electric bike division announced the Grand Panther 6, a hybrid e-bike that blurs the line between city commuting and off-road adventuring. Electric assistance is provided by Yamaha’s PWX3 mid-drive motor which peaks at 85 newton-meters of torque, combined with an excellent 12-speed Shimano Deore XT drivetrain.

Zeeho, an electric two-wheeler brand owned by Chinese titan CFMoto, announced its second electric moped for the Nepalese market. The Ae6+ has a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph), starts at Rs 344,900 ($1,235 USD) and is intended to compete with offerings from Segway, NIU, and Yadea.

Electric motorcycles don’t have gearboxes, which is a bummer for ICE riders who enjoy the more involved experience of shifting gears. Indian company Matter looks to change that with the Aera 5000+, an adventure bike with a four-speed gearbox.

Also coming to India is the Scoobike MotoFaast 35, a new electric moped from Okaya EV. Intended to provide the feel of a motorcycle in the form factor of a moped, it boasts a range of up to 130 km (81 mi) and a top speed of 70 km/h (44 mph).

A consortium of German and Czech companies are working on a hydrogen-powered motorcycle design which they hope to transform into a working prototype by 2025. Unlike Yamaha’s concept which uses a hydrogen combustion engine, the Hydrocycle runs on electric power generated by a hydrogen fuel cell.

Citroën Ami has competition in the UK from Spanish mobility company Silence, who announced their S04 electric microcar. It has the smallest turning radius of any such vehicle currently on the market at just 3.5 meters (11’6”), and while its range of 148 km (92 mi) is double that of the Ami, so is the starting price of £15,995 ($20,180 USD).
