Polestar has formed a partnership with Swedish off-road motorcycle firm, Cake, to develop a new electric bicycle.
Based on Cake’s newest bike platform, the Makka – Polestar edition by Cake features a unique design, component features and upgrades that both firms say further align their shared desire to accelerate the shift towards sustainable mobility.
The bike has also been designed to be used in tandem with the Polestar 2, with a rear tow bar mount allows the bike to be transported and charged directly from the car while on the move.
Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said: “Makka – Polestar edition by CAKE 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 a cord that allows it to charge from our car, ready to tackle inner cities as well as explore the countryside.
“Together with brands like CAKE, we are building momentum towards a more sustainable future.”
Cake CEO and founder, Stefan Ytterborn, added: “Instead of wasting time in a traffic jam, finding a parking spot or squashing up in a crowded train, together with the team at Polestar we want to make the future of mobility flexible, accessible and emission-free – while aiming to create cities for people, not for cars that pollute.”
The bike will be available in the new ‘Polestar Additionals’ webshop which launches at the same time to a wider audience following an initial exclusive pre-launch for the Polestar community earlier in the summer.
