Over the years and rigorous R&D filled with passion, Envo began to unleash an array of vehicles designed to do things differently. From e-bikes to snowmobile conversion kits and even electric water bikes, they do it all. Naturally, it was time to create a machine that could cover all three terrains (road, snow, water). This brings us to the Flex.
What Envo aimed to achieve with Flex is "a common platform of frames engineered that can be converted from one riding application to another." I think that should be clear enough about what's going on here. If it isn't, the Flex is a frame design that can be adapted to an array of activities driven by swappable components.
Let's say you grab yourself an Overland edition, the strongest and beefiest of the bunch. Let's say summer is over and you're done rocking your ride with a 1,000-watt motor, racks to carry groceries and gear, and a foldable frame. When the time comes, throw on a Snowbike conversion kit, and romp through the snow. That switch will run you $2,800 (€2,600 at current exchange rates), on top of the $3,400 (€3,200) you already dropped on the Overland. We're looking at a rate of over $6,000 (€5,600).
If you want to lower the price of your all-season setup, you can grab a Flex Urban and pay around $2,800 (€2,600). But you'll be getting a 500-watt motor with this EV. Come winter, the same process you read about above is to be undertaken. The same holds true for the Trike option. Speaking of the Trike, it's the machine meant for folks who are always on the go and need to carry larger loads. Maybe you're a painter, architect, or just have lots of groceries to carry this time around; the Trike is for that.
All that sounds really neat, but you would be dishing out some serious cash for this all-season machine if you want the whole package. Still, if you're looking for an EV that can do things your friend's e-bikes can't do, the Flex lifestyle may just be for you. Just a little something-something to consider for this year.
