Maeving – New powertrain for removable battery electric motorcycle
Developing a new powertrain for use in Maeving’s removable battery electric motorcycles.
Maeving is Britain’s leading electric motorcycle manufacturer. Their first product, the RM1, is a lightweight electric motorcycle with removable batteries that can be charged at any standard plug socket. This project aims to improve on Maeving’s existing technology by delivering a new powertrain, powerful enough to deliver highway-capable top speeds, and able to comfortably carry a pillion passenger. It will be demonstrated at Cenex Expo 2024.
- Development of a new powertrain that can reach speeds of 65mph, making it suitable for motorway usage
- The challenge is delivering this performance within the limitations of removable batteries, which need to weigh a maximum of 15kg
- Maeving has been working on the powertrain since April 2022, and is now ready to take the technology through its final stages of development
- Total project value £3 million, with £1.1 million funded through the APC
