Ola Electric, maker of 2W EVs, is prepping for an IPO - valued at $5B. Sold 30k scooters in April.

Vammo, Brazilian company that builds battery swapping infrastructure for Latin America’s motorcycle riders. Grid is 85% renewable in Brazil, less than 0.5% of fleet is EV.

Taiwan-based Gogoro expanded partnership with BikeBank to bring battery-swapping stations to 7 new cities in South Korea.

Bird’s stock fell 11% after the company announced a reverse stock split.

In Amsterdam, low-speed microcars have been a lifeline for people with disabilities to get around for decades. But as their numbers increase, some are wondering whether they belong in the bike lane, the car lane, or a new, third lane.


Chinese scooter company Yadea collaborated with Porsche to design their F200 commuter scooter, which offers a high-powered ride in a sports car-inspired frame. The F200 delivers 14.7 horsepower throughout the entire rev range, taking it from 0-30 mph in just 2.5 seconds.

Meanwhile, Porsche also just released an updated EXC electric mountain bike, which packs 85 Nm of torque via a 250-watt Shimano mid-drive, and also includes Fox Float suspension in the front and rear, giving 120mm and 100mm of travel, respectively. The new model retails starting at $15,350, but what would a Porsche be without the price tag?

Fiat recently revealed their updated Topolino mini EV, which draws inspiration from the original Fiat 500. Not much is known about the performance of the new Topolino, but it is expected to pack a similar punch to the Citroën Ami, an 8 horsepower mini car.
