Swedish brand CAKE will start using paper materials in electric motorcycles
Swedish brand CAKE imagines itself at the forefront of the global transition to a zero-emission society by taking concrete actions over its text-based mission. For years, the electric bike company has produced lightweight and sustainable-infused electric motorcycles as part of its belief in sharing the environment with respect by riding a motorcycle without air or sound pollution. On march 24th, it took its mission to greater heights by saying goodbye to plastic as a material used in its products, anchoring the aim of bringing about a sustainable option to plastics suitable for use in the vehicle industry. The swedish maker has announced a technological partnership with ‘papershell’ in carrying out the revisited frontier. it has begun evaluating paper as a replacement for the plastics used in its electric motorcycles. ‘CAKE was founded to inspire a zero-emission society and this naturally involves carefully investigating the best possible materials for use in our electric bikes. we are excited to work with papershell and hope that we can play a crucial part in finding a material that can minimize or even eradicate the use of conventional plastics in our motorcycles. this is a collaboration that ultimately will benefit the entire vehicle industry and beyond,’ says stefan ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
