Life has been pretty crazy in recent months for Aussie electro-moto pioneer Dennis Savic and his tight-knit team. A rush of local and international interest in the original Savic prototype sent the team into overdrive working on a production-ready prototype built around a new, integrated powertrain unit. Savic himself has been working hard getting the business and production side ready to meet demand, while balancing rapid promotions and escalating responsibilities in his day job as an Optimization Engineer at Ford, not to mention a fresh engagement to his long-suffering partner Tess.

Vanguard Motorcycles teams with Erik Buell for two electric commuters

The Vanguard Roadster was brutal and blinged-out, tightly packaged and massively over-engineered. It had as much aggressively American presence as a monster truck with a stars 'n' stripes paint job. But, as several of readers were quick to point out, there are a ton of Americans who no longer feel like giant gas-guzzling noise machines are how their country should be represented. There's a growing segment (and I'm goings to assume it's mainly on the coasts) that are much prouder of Tesla, Alta and Zero than they are of Shelby or Harley-Davidson. They see a gleaming future where America takes a commanding lead in high-performance electrics, and they'd like to put the dirty days of petroleum behind them as quickly as possible. Well, it seems Vanguard can see which way the wind's blowing. Exodyne electric motorcycle fuses battery power with home-made engineering.

Electric scooter channels the spirit of the penny farthing. In some ways, it makes sense to put small wheels on electric scooters – they accelerate quickly, and allow the vehicle to remain on the small-and-portable side.

On the other hand, they can also easily get stuck in potholes, causing the rider to fly over the handlebars. A group of Montreal-based entrepreneurs have created what they see as a good compromise, in the form of the SnikkyBike. As can be seen, although the scooter has a li'l 16-inch motorized wheel in the back, it has a full-size 700C bicycle wheel in the front.

This arrangement is claimed to combine the fast acceleration of a small drive wheel with a larger front wheel's ability to roll over obstacles instead getting stopped by them. Additionally, the short wheelbase lets it stay nimble and maneuverable, as it needs to be in urban environments. Its top speed is 20 mph (32 km/h), with one charge of its removable 36-volt lithium-ion battery allowing for a range of about 20 miles – regenerative braking helps it reach that figure.

So on a cold, wet night in January, Loz Blain dropped in for a long chat and some hair-raising seat time in some of Workman's crazy home-built electric hot rods.
