- An SF startup, Mission Motors, just came out of serious stealth mode at TED 2009. We’ve already heard about affordable electric bike announcements from Honda, Vectrix, and Toshiba, however, MM looks to be setting its sites on the high-end cleantech consumer with its new luxury electric bike prototype – much like what Tesla and Fisker are attempting to do with EV’s.
- With claims of a 150 mile range, a top speed of 150 mph, and a 2-hour recharge, this no gears, all green performance bike might just be the next big thing……oh, wait….nevermind, the price tag is $68,995.
- CEO and former Tesla Engineer, Forrest North, had this to say:
“With the Mission One, we’re writing the next chapter in motorcycle design, delivering a new riding experience without sacrificing performance or design in a zero emissions vehicle.”
