Volvo’s New Concept Recharge EV Doesn’t Mimic Combustion Engine Cars

088a9614.png
Volvo recently committed to an all-EV future, but to date, all of its electric cars have been redesigns of existing combustion engine models. Now, Volvo’s new Concept Recharge EV shows that its future products will stand out from the rest of its lineup by abandoning the “unnecessary elements” of traditional cars, such as the front grille.

Toyota is planning a hydrogen-powered Corolla endurance racing car

While much of the focus for green automobiles of the future has been on battery electric vehicles, there are other green alternatives. One of the other major green alternatives is hydrogen, as it produces no emissions when burned. Toyota is one of the few companies to have a production hydrogen-powered vehicle available to purchase. The automaker recently announced it would … Continue reading

Segway Makes Futuristic Hydrogen-Powered Motorcycles Now, Because Why Not

The Segway APEX H2 hybrid motorcycle.Segway

Check out Paul Blart’s new ride! Segway, the company that made ridiculous upright scooters in the 2000s, just announced its upcoming Apex H2 motorcycle, a futuristic vehicle with a hybrid hydrogen-electric powertrain.

Chinese startup Ninebot acquired the Segway company back in 2015 thanks to an $80 million investment from Xiaomi and Sequoia Capital. Since then, Segway has morphed into an ambitious electric vehicle company, developing rugged four-wheelers, delivery robots, scooters, and go-karts.

After showing off several concept motorcycles, Segway is finally ready to put the Apex H2 intro production. The Tron-inspired bike runs on a hybrid hydrogen-electric powertrain, which is a short way of saying that it pulls energy from a battery and from fuel cells filled with gaseous hydrogen. The hybrid design offers better mileage than an all-electric system, without the environmental consequences of a typical combustion engine.

Lined with Tron-inspired LEDs, the Apex H2 can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in under four seconds. It has a max speed of 94 MPH, faster than the original Segway but slower than many motorcycles, and it emits water vapor from its exhaust pipe. Still, the bike’s bizarre design may scare off hardcore motorcyclists, as the Apex H2 uses a swingarm instead of a suspension fork, which usually results in poor steering and suspension.

The Apex H2 will enter production in 2023, and should go on sale in that same year. Segway says that the bike will cost ¥69,999, approximately $10,699. That’s not a bad price for a futuristic hydrogen-electric vehicle, and it could entice motorcyclists who are weary of the Apex H2’s unconventional, and potentially inconvenient design.

The U.S. Can Get to All Electric Vehicles by 2035

If all cars and trucks sold in the United States are electric by 2035, it could save consumers in the United States some $2.7 trillion over the course of the next 30 years, working out to roughly $1,000 in savings per household per year, a new analysis finds. And if you’re itching to start seeing that cash, you’re in…
