Polestar reveals new limited edition of CAKE Makka Electric Moped

Swedish premium electric mobility brands Polestar and CAKE have teamed up to reveal a new limited Polestar edition of the fully electric moped Makka, the first to be available in North America. Inspired by the exterior color first shown on the Polestar electric roadster concept, this new moped is available in sky color.

Named the CAKE Makka Polestar edition, it is a continuation of the electric moped launched last year. It was available exclusively in Polestar Snow matte, adding a distinctive Polestar touch and design feature to the moped, which instantly sold out.

In addition to the bespoke color, the Polestar edition includes a slim LED headlight and dampers from Öhlins. The new edition also features a detachable rear carrier, which allows for numerous configurations, including boxes, racks, passenger seats, and more, making the electric commuter even more flexible.

The CAKE Makka Polestar edition has a small 1.5 kWh battery, which feeds an electric motor that generates 3.8 hp (2.8 kW) and 44 lb-ft (60 Nm) of torque. The electric moped has a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h) and a range of 34 miles (54 km) on a full charge. In addition, it offers two ride modes for balanced performance or extended range. The battery takes 2 hours to recharge from 0 to 80%, and a full charge will require 3 hours.

The 70kg electric moped has a maximum permitted load of 540 lbs (245 kg) and rides on 14-inch lightweight motorcycle wheels. It is wrapped in motorcycle tires and features stainless steel brakes with 220 mm (8.7 in) discs and two-piston calipers.

It is sold and delivered by CAKE, but the Polestar edition is available exclusively in select Polestar markets via the Polestar Additionals webshop, with a retail price of $5,300.
