In 2023, Kate is to launch a new and greatly improved version, known as the Original. It will be sold directly on the company's website and will be available in 23 colors.
The Original retains the long-standing design of the NOSMOKE yet integrates major technical developments: the components, the manufacturing process, the batteries and the motors have been completely reinvented. The Original is now available in 3 different versions, offering a range from 100 to 200 km and a maximum speed of 70 to 90 km/h, depending on the engine. The Original is fully customizable and will launch in Spring 2023.
“Over the last few months, we have focused all our efforts on the Original, a leisure vehicle inspired by the NOSMOKE which incorporates technologies developed at Kate. It is a completely new vehicle and meets the highest standards of the automotive industry. Optimizing the production line has been one of our key challenges to ensure that we can meet growing demand. Today, we are able to deliver our customers’ vehicles in a few weeks; previously, this took a few months. The Original is a real beauty; it’s been love at first sight for all our customers. Go for a drive in a Kate Original and you'll see the effect it has on curious bystanders," says Pierre Escrieut, Kate’s CTO and co-founder.
