Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car brand, has announced it is continuing to partner with CAKE, the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles, and mopeds. Together they will produce a second limited Polestar edition of the fully electric moped Makka in the sky colour first shown on the Polestar electric roadster concept.
The first edition of the CAKE Makka Polestar edition, in Polestar Snow matte colour, launched in 2021 instantly sold out. It added a distinctive Polestar touch and design features to the electric moped. Besides the bespoke colour, the Polestar edition includes a slim headlight and dampers from high-end suspension company Öhlins.
The new edition in sky colour also adds a detachable rear carrier. This offers improved cargo carrying, adaptable for configurations like boxes, racks, passenger seats and more, making the electric commuter even more flexible.
The CAKE Makka Polestar edition has a top speed of 28mph (45kph) and two ride modes for extended range or balanced performance. It is sold and delivered by CAKE but the Polestar edition is available now exclusively to selected Polestar markets via the Polestar Additionals webshop with a retail price of €5,300.
The Polestar Additionals webshop was launched in 2021 and offers Polestar lifestyle products including t-shirts, hoodies, bags and water bottles. Plus, mobility solutions such as Polestar editions of the CAKE Makka electric moped and the Allebike Alpha high-end mountain bike.
We like that Polestar is partnering with Cake because together they provide an all-round mobility solution. This is important for reducing not only pollution but helping to ease traffic problems caused by cars.
The CAKE Makka Polestar edition is available for delivery in the following Polestar markets: US, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Availability for other Polestar markets will be confirmed in the future. Explore more at https://additionals.polestar.com/
Back in November, Polestar announced it had obtained $1.6 billion in financial support from major shareholders. Volvo Cars are providing an $800 million principal amount 18-month term loan, with an equity conversion option for Volvo Cars. This loan amount is on par with the direct and indirect financial and liquidity support that Polestar’s other major shareholder, PSD Investment, is providing.
