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.
