“Our aim with the Nobe 100 is to create something so effortlessly stylish that you want to lick it, while at the same time having an unparalleled effect on the impact of city traffic on the planet,” said Roman Mulkar, Nobe CEO, in a statement. “We wanted to fuse together personality and conscience, not just inventing a more sustainable way to get around cities, but also making it a more exciting and charismatic experience than a petrol vehicle.”
