Behold: the FT750-26 and FT750-20, two e-bikes from the California Scooter Company.
A 750-watt hub motor gives a top speed of 32km/h and 64km of range with a full charge of the 13.6-Ah battery. The two models have slightly different frame sizes with 26” and 20” tyres respectively, but both have an LED status display on the handlebar, fat Kenda tyres and 10cm of travel on the telescopic front fork.
Yours for about €1,520.
UPDATE: CSC don’t ship electric bicycles outside of the US so you’d have to make some class of alternative arrangement if you want one. (Thanks Michael)
Behold: the SKAI zero emissions aircraft – a hydrogen-fuel cell powered electric, six-rotor VTOL with a 640km range (and a built-in airframe parachute).
Piloted either remotely, in person (from the plush leather appointed interior) or autonomously, the relative simplicity of its design means that the price point (yet to be announced as, despite the hype, the vehicle is still in development) will probably be somewhere in the region of a luxury car.
Behold: the Fluid – a top shelf, pedal-assisted electric bike from e-bike manufacturer Fuell.
The aluminium alloy frame contains two rechargeable cells packing 1,008Wh with 100Nm of torque and a 200km range while hub-mounted gears and carbon belt drive (instead of a chain) reduce maintenance.
Yours later this year for just over €2,500.
Behold: the Aviar R67 – a conceptual all electric version of the 1967 Ford Mustang by Russian startup company Aviar.
The company claims a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 2.2 seconds and a 480km range with all-wheel drive, a carbon fibre chassis (mimicking the original first generation muscle car) and a lightweight custom tubular aluminium subframe.
It may never make it to production, but still.
Behold: the Harley Davidson Livewire – a 2014 electric prototype that’s now made it into production, with instant electric torque from a low-mounted power plant replacing the legendary growl of the V-twin.
Inevitably destined to be controversial within the Harley community, prices and full specs will be revealed in January with delivery later in 2019.
A 1949 Mercury Coupe (part of a line of repurposed vehicles left with their authentic dings, weathering and rusty patinas intact from US firm Icon).
Crucially, the 69 year old shell conceals a 400bhp dual electric motor and a Tesla battery with a 320km range.
Behold: the Zero FXS electric motorcycle – powered by dual option 46bhp battery systems ( 3.6kWh and 7.2kWh) with a 160km range on a full charge and serious acceleration on tap for a bike weighing around 136kg.
Yours for just under €7,500.

Behold: the Vespa Elettrica – an electric scooter first announced over two years ago and now finally taking advance orders for delivery later this year. The 4kW engine outperforms the traditional 50cc petrol predecessor and the initial 100km range will double with the addition of a more powerful Elettrica X variant.
Yours for around €6,400.
