You may imagine that CES is a hive of strange assorted gadgetry, including TVs, laptops, smart home equipment, and several other devices. But there is also a sizable auto tech show in Las Vegas at the yearly tech show. Additionally, it seems sense to expect more electric vehicles and related advancements at CES 2023 because consumers are now more ecologically conscious than ever. Here are a few of the top ones.
Verge TS Ultra Motorcycle has serious Tron vibes
In 2023, the US will get the Verge TS line. The high-end Ultra will be the coolest bike on the block with a top speed of 124 mph and the ability to charge swiftly in 25 minutes.
The Ultra generates 201 horsepower and has an estimated range of 233 miles on a single charge. The bike has a 2.5 second 0-60 mph time. The bike’s lower center of gravity and larger battery in the frame are made possible by the motor’s placement in the rear rim. It will cost you $44,900 for the Ultra. There are two more variants, the TS Pro for $29,900 and the TS for $26,900 if that’s too much for you.

Who needs an outlet when you have a Squad?
The Squad is a two-passenger vehicle that can go 19.2 miles on a sunny day thanks to a small solar panel on its roof. The golf cart-style vehicle can run up to 60 kilometers on a single full charge. Two 2-kW rear in-wheel motors and four interchangeable 1.6-kWh batteries make up the drivetrain. Its top speed is a little about 30 miles per hour. The automobile incorporates a roll cage, seat belts, and four-wheel disc brakes for safety. It might not be the sportiest automobile on the block, but with a US MSRP of $6,250, it still saves you money.
Bike through the snow.
Ride a bike in the snow
A 163-pound rideable called the Moonbike combines elements of a snowmobile and a bike. With 170 nm of torque and a top speed of 26 mph, it can sustain a rider weight of 264 pounds. With an iOS and Android app that enables users to keep track of their routes and altitude as well as communicate with other moonbikers, the most recent Moonbike version offers mobile compatibility for its products. The bike is currently $8,900 in retail price.
BMW’s concept car doubles as your buddy
The I Vision Dee from BMW aims to change that. This futuristic automobile uses cutting-edge AI to do away with Siri and Alexa’s “servant” gimmick. Instead, it wants to be both your friend and your car. 240 E Ink panels form the exterior of the electric sports automobile known as the I Vision Dee. Because it is an EV, the ventilation that a grille traditionally offers is not needed. However, you may utilize those panels to program a digital face into the car’s grille and alter the color of the vehicle at the touch of a button.
Although the BMW I Vision Dee is still just a concept, some of its features will eventually make their way into actual BMW vehicles. For instance, according to BMW CEO Oliver Zipse, automobiles will begin using the AI-powered HUB technology shown in the I Vision Dee in 2025. David Van Boom
This time, a flying car is truly becoming a reality
Since at least the Jetsons, we’ve waited for flying automobiles, and it looks like we’re about to get our wish. And when I say “we,” I’m referring to Aska, a business that debuted the A5 flying automobile at CES 2023. Aska has started taking preorders for the $789,000 car, so it’s more than just a concept. Guy Kaplinsky, a co-founder of Aska, stated at CES 2023 that the Federal Aviation Administration might approve the A5 “within a month.” In 2026, Aska intends to launch a ride-sharing service using the A5.

The Tesla of the sea
EVs are popular right now, as you have indeed observed. But why pause while driving? According to Bridget Carey of CNET, Candela’s C8 EV hydrofoil boat is a sleek craft that flies across the water like a flying carpet. Besides making electric vehicles appealing, Candela’s C8 also borrows heavily from Tesla in one crucial area: autonomous boating, where the C8 can maintain a predetermined route. The $390,000 price tag on the boat is justified by the fact that it is entirely built of carbon fiber, including the seats. David Van Boom
The first Sony vehicle will debut in 2026
EVs are a lucrative industry, and Sony wants in. The industry titan in electronics is collaborating with Honda on a brand-new electric car dubbed Afeela. The vehicle’s front bumper has a small screen, or “media bar,” that displays the Afeela logo. Additionally, this may communicate with individuals outside the automobile and exchange information with them, such as the weather or the car’s charge level.
In contrast to the vehicle Sony displayed at CES 2020 all those years ago, this one is currently available for purchase. Sony’s Afeela automobile will roll onto North American roads in 2026, though the price has not yet been announced. Europe and Japan will come after.
A Transformers-inspired bike that fits under a desk
What’s hidden behind this electric bike? The Tatamel poses little chance of being mistaken for a robot in disguise, but it’s unusual to come across an electric bike that can transform into a suitcase-sized package and fit under a desk. That is precisely what Japanese business Icoma displayed at CES 2023 with the Tatamel. It’s also more than just a last-mile bike. Its electric battery pack can be used to charge electronics in an emergency.
