Ural electric sidecar

This looks just amazing – Ural took the guts of the Zero DS-R and made a sidecar out of it:

That looks so damned cool!

From the pictures, I could carry a passenger, maybe even two, and it’d certainly work for a most of our grocery and household shopping. Alas, it’s only a prototype for now, but the combination of modern powertrain and retro style (right out of the Indiana Jones movies, eh?) really tickles my fancy. One more picture:

Ural Motorcycles finalized the first development phase of an all-electric sidecar motorcycle. The electric prototype was built on the existing one-wheel drive cT chassis, utilizing Zero Motorcycles’ proprietary powertrain package (motor, batteries, controller and other components). California-based company ICG developed the overall design and was responsible for fabricating the initial prototype. Zero Motorcycles also provided the necessary engineering support during development and testing of the prototype that made this project possible.
