Founded in 2016, Cake is a Swedish company that has quickly risen to prominence as a manufacturer of electric motorbikes. Its mantra, instilled by the company’s founder, Stefan Ytterborn, is “light, quiet, and clean.” But the company made noise this week when it unveiled its second Makka Polestar edition of the electric moped.
This limited edition bike is painted in sky colors to match the Polestar electric roadster concept. Sold and shipped by Cake, the new Makka Polestar edition is available exclusively for select Polestar markets on the Polestar Additionals website. The moped has a top speed of 28 mph and offers two riding modes for balanced performance or more range.
Polestar and Cake previously teamed up to make the first issue of the Makka Polestar in 2021. Painted a matte finish called Polestar Snow, it quickly sold out. Based on Cake’s Makka electric moped, the Polestar edition features sleek headlamps and high-end suspension dampers from Ohlins. The second edition’s new sky color includes a detachable rear cargo carrier that offers flexible configurations for boxes, racks, passenger seats, and more.
Previously, Polestar announced that it will produce an electric roadster which is planned to be launched in 2026. O2, which was revealed by Polestar last March, inspired the second Makka Polestar edition moped and shares the same sky color paint.
At launch, the O2 roadster will use Polestar’s 800-volt EV architecture and share the same platform as the Polestar 5. The dual-motor powertrain will produce up to 884 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, providing a 0-60 mph time in a low three-second range and top speed. top 155 mph.
Polestar also has several other models in development that will be launched in the next two years. The Polestar 4 SUV is expected towards the end of 2023, with the Polestar 5 four-door performance GT arriving in 2024.
