Polestar, Cake team up to offer car/moped EV bundle

The companies say the combo is an answer to drivers who want to visit car-free cities.

Polestar and Cake are now releasing a new and unique electric mobility bundle that combines the road capabilities of the Polestar 2 with the inner-city convenience of the Cake Makka moped. A rear tow bar mount allows the bike to be transported and charged directly from the car while on the move.

“This initiative is the next step in our brand collaboration and it gives us a chance to tackle broader mobility challenges. The lightweight bike connects with Polestar 2 via an ‘umbilical cord’ that allows it to charge from our car, ready to tackle inner cities as well as have fun off-road,” says Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

With car-free cities on the rise, Polestar says the intent is that the car can be left at convenient city border parkings at the edge of town as you continue your inner-city errands on your Makka moped.

For this occasion, Polestar and Cake have designed a special version of the recently released moped platform, Makka.
