A new form of hybrid transportation is happening in Brooklyn, which could soon disrupt the mobility space in other cities.

Amid a world grappling with climate change and the need for sustainable solutions, a new player has entered the mobility scene. Pave Motors Inc., a company brought to the U.S. by Nicolaus and Casper Nagel from Germany, is introducing a unique solution to urban and suburban mobility. Their new electric motorbike, a fusion of an e-bike and an e-motorcycle, is designed to replace short-to-medium distanced car trips, offering a more efficient and eco-friendlier alternative. Making a dent in greenhouse gas emissions, where transportation accounts for nearly 30% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, creates the perfect opportunity for a new player in the market.

How can Pave Motors disrupt the mobility space and traditional transportation landscape with its innovative electric motorbikes? And what does this mean for the future of urban mobility?

In this episode, Stefanski peeks into the disrupted world of mobility with guest Nico Nagel, Co-Founder of Pave Motors.

  • The environmental benefits of their fully electric, emission-free bikes
