adam waldron unveils CB100-E Electric Honda Motorcycle

 

British designer Adam Waldron has given new life to a classic 1980s CB100 Honda motorcycle, fitting it with a 2000w electric hub motor — creating a budget-friendly ride for the city. ‘The overarching goal was to build a practical daily rider for less than £2000, do at least 50 miles on a single charge, and keep up with city traffic. The bike is ULEZ and congestion zone exempt, and because it is also considered a classic vehicle, it’s also tax and MOT exempt. As a result, it’s the best of both

Mercedes reveals electric luxury vehicles for on- and off-road

Mercedes EQG concept SUV takes its style from the famously boxy Mercedes-Benz G-class SUV.

The Mercedes-Benz EQG concept SUV is an all-electric interpretation of the Mercedes G-class SUV. The SUV shares the G-class’s boxy shape. Engineers even copied the G-class’ jutting door handles and meticulously recreated the same “thunk” made by the G-class’ doors when they close. Instead of a spare tire mounted on the EQG’s tailgate, there’s a storage box that can hold a charging cable.

Mercedes plans to produce a vehicle based on this concept, and announced that it will even drive it through the same Austrian mountain off-road course where the internal combustion-powered G-class model is tested. Each wheel of the
