While the world focuses on ‘louder’, ‘more connected’, ‘more attachments’, ‘more, more more’, FTN Motion is very busy working out how to do less. The team from FTN Motion (New Zealand) contacted THE PACK concerning their new electric project.

Frustrated with the status quo

FTN Motion: “Rewind to 2015. We found ourselves, like thousands of others, wasting hours a day commuting across town in gridlock traffic, pumping out endless clouds of emissions.

​It wasn’t long before we started looking at what alternative options were available. Electric mopeds emerging at the time were uninspiring copies of their petrol equivalents, a bit odd looking or just plain ugly.

We’re done with the noise, stress, and business of modern-day living. Plus, earth’s a pretty sweet deal and could use our help. 


Both having mechanical engineering backgrounds in automation and product development, we decided we could do better.

​We set out to build an electric moped from the ground up, using the advantages of an electric powertrain to develop a unique layout focused on style, practicality and simplicity.

​After a building a proof of concept, we spent the next few years designing, refining and testing. We now have a fully functioning production prototype, new team members, and a cunning plan to launch in 2021.”

Looking for investors

Saskia Thornton (Marketing & Strategy): “We’re currently in the process of raising capital and looking to run our first production run by the end of the year. We’re pitching our electric motorbikes around the country so we can get ourselves the green light to start working away on our pilot run.
If you are an investor, we can talk of course, meet the team”:
