Canadian electric vehicle firm Daymak has announced a new Avvenire line of six electric vehicles. It comprises an e-bike, a recumbent bike, an e-scooter, an all-terrain vehicle, an electric car and, most strikingly of all, a personal flying vehicle.
"This will redefine what it means to travel using light electric vehicles,” said Daymak founder, Aldo Baiocchi. “The technology we are designing will incorporate solar power to our fully enclosed vehicle line for an efficient, comfortable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional carbon emitting vehicles right at our doorstep."
Daymak’s Avvenire product announcement starts with the e-bike and builds from there. But let’s skip straight to the flying car, shall we?
“No more traffic jams,” boasts the blurb. “Your personal vehicle. We are all meant to fly.”
Details about the Skyrider are scant because it’s still in development. They’re taking orders though with an expected delivery date late in 2025. No price yet.
The website suggests the Skyrider will be a 250hp vehicle with a 100kw/h battery, a range of 100km and a top speed of 300km/h.
“The Skyrider exists to create the next step in e-vehicle evolution,” says the firm. “We are combining science with elegance for a world with no roads, no traffic, and no pollution.
“When DaVinci thought of the first flying machine, this is how he envisioned the world. This is what dreams are made of; this is the new reality – because you were born to fly.”
We might have to agree to disagree with Daymak on the whole ‘born to fly’ thing.
Moving onto the other vehicles, the Terra is a 500W off-road bike with solar panels that trickle charge the bike, increasing battery life.
“The Terra is more than a bike,” says Daymak before adding with more than a little flourish, “It is a mobile designed for full immersion in the now, and full connection to what’s ahead.”
With a battery of up to 2,880Wh, the Terra is capable of 100km on a single charge.
Deliveries are due to start next year with prices starting from $3,495.
The Foras is a covered, recumbent, single passenger e-bike.
Also 500W, it offers a 200km range with the same battery size as the Terra and also boasts trickle charging.
Deliveries are due to start next year.
An all-wheel drive e-scooter. It’s possible Daymak may have been running out of ways to talk up the fully enclosed nature of the Avvenire vehicles when they wrote: “Relax and enjoy your surroundings from the safety and comfort of your enclosure.”
This one’s 2,000W with a 5,400Wh battery. It also features solar trickle charging, rear storage, a reverse camera and a range of up to 160km, plus optional autonomous driving features.
The Avvenire Tectus will cost $4,595 with deliveries from 2022.
The Aspero is an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). “Use it as recreational vehicle, farming vehicle aid, hunting, camping or whatever your heart desires,” says Daymak.
It’s a 5,000W vehicle with a 10,800Wh battery, a range of up to 300km and a top speed of 50km/h.
It also includes solar trickle charging, rear storage, a plough/trailer hitch and a claimed charge time of two hours.
The Aspero is priced from $6,500 with deliveries from 2022.
This is a two-seater electric three-wheeler that Daymak says is both “the perfect commuting vehicle” and also “the fastest three-wheel car on the planet.”
They’re claiming acceleration of 0-60mph in 1.8 seconds, which would be quicker than any production car.
The Spiritus will offer up to 150hp with an 80kw/h battery and a range of up to 400km.
It also features optional auto-pilot, wifi, air-conditioning, solar trickle charging, and a full entertainment system.
Prices range from $18,000 for the ‘Deluxe’ version with minimal features and a 30kw/h battery to $149,000 for the ‘Ultimate’ version. Deliveries from 2023.
As you’d imagine, Daymak is currently looking for investors to help it develop the Avvenire line.
