CES 2019: Forget hoverboards, Swagtron's off-road electric skateboard is the new pipe dream

Swagtron was an ealry innovator in the electric hoverboard craze at CES years ago, now the company is back with an astonishing list of new electric bikes and scooters. While these make for convenient and efficient transportation, what stands out most is their beefy Swagskate off-road electric skateboard.

This looks like the love child of Batman's Tumbler Batmobile and an electric skateboard and it is glorious in its ruggedness. "Rolling on 9-inch knobby pneumatic tires and suspension trucks front and rear, this beast is boosted by dual 800-watt motors capable of 25 mph for up to 18 miles per charge. A responsive, durable 10-ply maple and bamboo deck ties it all together."

Swagskate can be used in urban and off-road environments and we can't wait to see what it can do in demos as well as find out how much it costs.

Aston Martin to launch Heritage EV program to make its old cars electric

With more and more cities shunning internal combustion engines, Aston Martin is hoping its classic cars stay relevant and legal. The company is launching a Heritage EV program where classic Aston Martins can be converted to have all-electric powertrains. If you want to drive around in your classic Aston Martin, this will be the way to go. The company is using “key components” of the technology it’s using to develop the Rapide E, a limited edition all-electric sports car the car maker plans to launch late next year.

According to Aston Martin, the first car to get a conversion plan would be the 1970 DB6 MkII Volante. They will be making Rapide E-inspired “cassettes” that can be slipped in place of the original engine and gearbox and will even be attached using the same mountings. A new screen will also be fitted inside the car’s interior, but otherwise everything else will remain the same. This means, if the owner decides to change back, that’s possible, too.

The electric Vespa of your dreams will soon be available for US $7000

Iconic scooter maker Piaggio has been profiting off nostalgia for decades with the perennially hip and practical Vespa scooters. The company is now looking forward to the future by offering a product many have been asking for, an electric Vespa.

Vespa Electrica is coming this winter to Europe for €6,390 and will feature a range of 62 miles (99.8 kilometers) on a four hour full-charge. The company says the included battery pack should last around 10 years. While there is no shortage of electric scooters in the market today, purists will no doubt wait and see what this Vespa has to offer.

Ontario government shuts down EV and hydrogen vehicle incentive programs

Vehicles purchased on or before July 11 are eligible and still have 60 days to apply.

Ontario's new conservative government has shut down all incentives for electric vehicle charging stations according to the Ministry of Transportation. The timing of this comes just as the sales of EVs and hybrids are at an upswing with more models. The arrival of the more affordable Tesla Model 3 has generated a lot of sales but a lot of those buyers were counting on the provincial incentives to help defer the costs of their vehicles. This is a step back towards the adoption of EVs in Canada.
