Hello dear readers and riders! We hope our British readers had the opportunity to check out the MCN London Motorcycle Show this past week. From the looks of it on Instagram, they showcased some pretty stellar EVs, including one we’re going to chat about later on. This week’s EV news roundup includes plenty of exciting stuff, including a freakin’ EV Hovercraft (!!!), a device that can transform cycles into electric bikes, and even an electric DeLorean (!!!!). As always, keep your ears to the ground and drop us a line at stephanie@thevintagent.com if you hear anything interesting. Let’s roll.

The TS is On the Verge of Greatness

The Verge TS is slated to begin production very soon, and prototypes have been spotted in the wild. [Verge]
One e-Motorcycle that has been captivating us for a while now is the Verge TS. The EV has come a long way since its days of inception in Finnish designer Teemu Saukkio’s garage. In fact, the Verge TS is no longer just a prototype and is being produced for the EU market within a few short weeks, with a long-term goal of global domination. The TS, featuring 80kW of power, 1,000Nm of torque, and 200km worth of range, is bound to be a success. We’re excited to see what the future has in store for Verge.


BMW’s Funky, Fast e-Motorbike Takes Centerstage at the MCN

What ho! BMW showed an eccentric and funky minicycle at MCN. [BMW]
While the MCN was packed with killer bikes, one EV that stole the show was BMW’s zany little Motorrad CE 02. Designed for teens and young adults, the CE 02 concept was originally unveiled last fall. But EV fans got to see it live and in the flesh this past week at MCN. Powered by a 11kW motor, this lightweight urban bike boasts top speeds of 56mph. But would you expect anything less from BMW?


VonMercier Arosa is Basically a Luxury Hovercraft


With a bright red paint job and black fan port, one might think it’s an Italian supercar…but those aren’t wheels, and it doesn’t touch the ground. [Arosa]
Something that really blew our minds this week was a sport-luxury EV Hovercraft from VonMercier. But this isn’t your dad’s big, bulky, and super ugly amphibious vehicle. Dubbed the Arosa, this stunning EV seamlessly blends innovative luxury with cutting-edge performance technology to create a machine like no other.

F1 references abound, abetted by the need to funnel lots of air through the chassis. [Arosa]
Able to conquer land, shore, and sea, the Arosa features air-cushion hovering technology, an advanced directional control system, and sports seating for two. And it’s all wrapped up in a low-body profile that looks like something straight out of a Ferrari showroom.


An Electric DeLorean??

As so few people ever drove (or heard) a Delorean, an EV version makes perfect sense. It was always about the shape, right? [DeLorean]
Okay, all you cyberpunk enthusiasts out there, listen up. We’ve got news for you. The DeLorean Motor Company recently dropped a short teaser that previews an EV with gullwing doors that’s set to a dramatic trailer soundtrack with horns that sound like they’re taken straight from the Book of Revelations. Promised to arrive later this year, the company alludes to its first EV being called DeLorean EVolved. While it’s clear the company is intending to drop an EV sports car with gullwing doors, that’s as much as we know. Dun-dun-DUN.


New Device Turns Water in to Wine – Or Cycles into EVs

Gursaurabh Singh has created an easy-attach electric motor/battery unit for the typical Indian bicycle. It’s a ‘motosacoche’ updated and upgraded. Kudos! [DVECK]
India has gone above and beyond when it comes to creating new EV technology. And one citizen just did it again with a revolutionary device that can convert any old bicycle into a battery-powered, motorized vehicle. Gursaurabh Singh is the founder and creator of Dhruv Vidyut Electric Conversion Kit (DVECK), a cutting-edge technology that allows normal pedal bikes to reach top speeds of 25kmph and a payload capacity of 170kg.  It’s waterproof and fireproof!
