In standing with the name it carries, the Tesla E-max is a far-out but awesome electric motorbike concept that features modern technologies and an unforgettable aesthetic. To supplement power to its 2 independent motors located in each wheel, the body is covered in a top layer of piezolectric material that converts compression strength into electricity and a second layer of Halite fiber that converts human heat. Pretty wild!
The ParaMoto Trike is the convergence of designer Zvezdan Nedeljković’s three passions: flying, motorcycles and designing.

An ultralight electric vehicle that goes from a scooter to an elegant powered paragliding trike, in a jiffy! It’s off to a flying start!
Designed for use by the Coast Guard, the Sharpshooter electric bike concept aims to be a viable alternative to the current limited range motorcycles for routine patrols and emergency rescues. For water rescues, the body can be bent and transformed into a lightweight throwing device and the motor can be used as a winch for collecting rope quickly. Aside from being multifunctional, this electric bike is a more environmentally friendly way of patrolling compared to the common motorcycle.
The A0 Monocycle, a project sponsored by Audi Design Research Munich, is aimed at the Audi driver that in combination with their vehicle would allow maximum mobility in the urban environment. The compact and lightweight electric cycle folds to fit any Audi trunk, and can be quickly removed, unfolded and driven to the user’s next destination. With a unique user position above the central axle and adjustable seat and handlebars, the A0 can accommodate almost any rider.
Featured in the top 20 for the 2011 International Bicycle Design Competition, the Greencycle 2 provides more than just basic transportation between point A and point B; it provides an environmentally sustainable, meaningful and overall beneficial solution to poorer countries. A series of G2s were created in the design process with core parts made from renewable resources such as bamboo, which is widely available in many 3rd world countries.
