Polestar & CAKE Collab On An Electric Last-Mile Delivery Trike Prototype

Sep 7, 2021

Category: Rides

Since 2017, Polestar has been on a mission to revolutionize the transportation sector, targeting everything from electric busses to luxury EV sedans. In the past, the Volvo-owned outfit has teamed up with third-party companies to deliver ebikes and other last-mile vehicles, and the brand’s all-new Re:Move prototype is no exception.

To bring this working prototype to life, Polestar joined forces with aluminum producer Hydro, German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, and leading electric moto marque, CAKE, with Grcic penning the machine and CAKE offering up its high-capacity battery, hub motor, and smart technology to the project. Constructed around a low-carbon aluminum chassis, this leaning cargo trike is only 29″ wide — enabling it to comfortably navigate bike lanes — yet can still haul up to 400lbs of cargo and gear. Aiming to replace standard deliver vans and optimize last-mile deliveries, the Re:Move boasts a 2.2kWh battery pack and a top speed of 15mph. On top of being cloaked in sustainable composite bodywork, the Re:Move’s frame also features an electric tilting mechanism that allows the three-wheeler to lean into cornerings, resulting in a tight, sub-23′ turning radius. A horn and a full suite of street-legal lighting complete this prototype package. Thus far the company hasn’t cited a release date, but classifying the machine as a prototype would certainly suggest that it may eventually see production.
