EV bike brand Maeving named in UK’s top 3 best businesses

The Startups 100 index has released its 2024 lineup and electric motorcycle company Maeving has placed third on the index.

Maeving, the first British electric motorcycle manufacturer, is revolutionising urban travel with its innovative EVs that can be plugged in and charged as easily as a smartphone.

With its facility based in Bingley, Coventry, Maeving is helping the Midlands lead the charge to meet global emissions targets, by making EVs an accessible choice for modern commuters.

Maeving was founded in 2018 by Seb Inglis-Jones and Will Stirrup. Since launching in April 2022, the Maeving RM1 has been the nation’s best-reviewed electric motorcycle.

The Startups 100 Index is now in its sixteenth year, and champions disruptive new UK businesses to watch. The 2024 index spans all industries, with the final list championing a huge range of inventive and original ideas.

In previous years, the Startups 100 index has predicted the success of huge names such as Monzo, Deliveroo and Notonthehighstreet, so it is an extraordinary achievement for Maeving to have ranked on this renowned list.

Despite the crises of the past couple of years, we’ve seen some incredible businesses from every corner of the UK in our rankings. Maeving has the potential to be as disruptive for motorcycles as Tesla has been for cars, and we’re thrilled to identify Maeving as one of the UK’s top new businesses to watch.”
