Eva Håkansson is a combination of speed junkie and tree-hugger. Her mission in life is to show that eco-friendly can be fast and fun, and that women are excellent engineers. She calls her 270 mph (434 km/h) battery-powered motorcycle “eco-activism in disguise”. Her driving force is the pure joy of building things that have never been built before.
