On the micro-mobility side, the ‘XPremium’ e-bike from Lectric is an excellent example of innovation in the industry. This bike combines features from numerous other e-bike categories, blending foldable, lightweight bikes with long-range city commuters and even payload-focused cargo bikes, all into one automobile. The XPremium is equipped with an 800-watt motor and a maximum range of 160km per charge. Additionally, the bike is equipped with extensive cargo space on the front and rear rack, as well as a unique folding design that makes it easy to carry onto public transport or up a staircase.
Toyota and Yamaha’s 455 HP hydrogen engine prototype is a strong example of a push toward sustainable alternative fuel in the automotive and logistics sectors. This engine uses only water and air as resources, making it far more sustainable than petroleum-powered combustion engines. Despite this, the engine is powerful and offers a long range on a single fuel cell, all well boasting lower costs than traditional ICE engines, showing the true value of alternative fuel to the automotive industry.
