While this isn’t strictly battery-powered news, the story is centred around one of the coolest electric manufacturers in the game: Cake. The Swedish e-bike firm is looking at replacing plastic parts with paper as part of its quest to reduce its impact of the environment.
Paper in place of plastic? Sounds ridiculous, right? But it’s not. The company has joined forces with its compatriots at PaperShell AB – a start-up which is working on turning paper into a durable, wood-like material that can be moulded like plastic – and Cake wants to use it on its bikes to minimise, and potentially even replace, less environmentally friendly materials on its bikes.

Cake plans to use these components to develop a bike with the smallest possible carbon footprint by 2025.
What that means remains to seen – but we’ll be keeping a close eye to see how it develops.
