Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round

  Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round Buick has an image problem in the U.S., where it’s seen as a brand for The Olds, and where it’s planning to take its own name off of its cars in 2019. But in China, where Buick sold 1.2 million vehicles last year, it’s a completely different story. Electric is also big there, which brings us to the big Buick news of the day: an electric concept for China called the Enspire. The Enspire will debut later this month in Beijing, and reflects Buick’s continued push into China and what is turning out to be the future of the brand.

Curtiss Motorcycle Company is on a mission to lead an all-new golden age of sustainable motorcycles by designing and crafting the world’ s best and finest electric motorcycles . The curtiss zeus concept. A new golden age of motorcycling is coming.

When Confederate Motorcycles changed its name to Curtiss - in honor of Glen Curtiss, the inventor of the V-twin engine - the company pledged to make only electric motorcycles. Curtiss did manage to sneak out 35 examples of the V-twin Warhawk last year, based on the Confederate P-51, but that really was the last of the ICE line. Curtiss has now opened the electric account with its Zeus prototype motorcycle, a battery-powered two-wheeler that aims "to future-proof the all-American hot rod."

Curtiss Motorcycles - formerly Confederate - reveals its first electric bike, the Zeus . The Lighting doesn't look like anything else out there at the moment, as if it rumbled out of a block of machined aluminum at the command of Judge Dredd .

Before unveiling the Zeus at this month's Quail Motorcycle Gathering, Curtiss had spoken of unveiling an electric bike called Hercules at the Quail. The Alabama-based company was working with Zero Motorcycles on the drivetrain, and the Hercules was reported to get a retail price of $30,000. We're not sure if the Zeus is a re-christened Hercules, or if targets were changed for the launch bike.

Because the Zeus remains a prototype, we only have two other details beyond its name. Power comes from a 14-kWh battery pack driving what its maker calls "the world's first E-Twin power unit," which is two high-output electric motors working a common output shaft. For comparison, that's a little more than the mid-range Zero S ZF13.0 naked streetbike at 13 kWh, a little less than the mid-range Lightning Motorcycles LS-218 sport bike, with a 15-kWh battery pack. We've read elsewhere that Zeus numbers come in somewhere around 170 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque.

  No electric Ferraris before 2022, says Marchionne Ferrari is readjusting its electric car timeline. Earlier, the company's chairmanAs recently as January's NAIAS show in Detroit, Marchionne stated, "If there's an electric supercar to be built, then Ferrari will be the first." Automotive News reports that Marchionne recalibrated that claim in a company meeting on April 13, saying that a full-electric Ferrari "is not relevant at the moment." If there will be an electric Ferrari, it will be announced after 2022. Earlier than any of that, Marchionne had called an electric Ferrari "an obscene concept," adding, "You would have to shoot me first.

The all- electric Curtiss Zeus Concept Prototype introduces a fresh, all-new design DNA that will define every Curtiss motorcycle moving forward.
