All-wheel drive electric trike from Estonia, with 3 seats and a removable roof, with a range of 270 km and a top speed of 110 km/h. The cute three-wheeler is made by hand. Currently undergoing international homologation, the first Nobe 100 will be delivered in 2020.
Setting Nobe a bit more apart from the rest is the innovative dual-battery system found in each automobile we make. With the main battery putting the power behind each three-wheeled classic a separate battery provides power for the supporting systems such as light, heat, and the ever present radio so you never miss a tune or turn along the way.
Electric Personality: Pioneering three-wheel electric car to raise €900k through new crowd-funding campaign
Nobe wants to build a global community of investors on a mission to transform inner-city transportation across the world
Maverick electric vehicle brand, Nobe believes it will transform both the impact and the mood of inner-city traffic with a ‘neo-retro’ car design officially revealed to the world today. The Nobe 100 is a three-wheeled vehicle that features design quirks inspired by classic cars, but delivers a futuristic vision for inner-city travel. Alongside its official launch, Nobe has opened a crowd-funding campaign to raise nearly €900 000 and supercharge initial production.
At first glance, the bold, eye-catching design of the Nobe 100 belies the care and attention paid to delivering the brand’s environmental mission; it’s made from 100% reusable or recyclable parts, produces zero air pollution, houses upgradable technology to enhance vehicle longevity, decentralises the production process and takes up far less road space despite accommodating three people.
As a three-wheeled vehicle, the Nobe 100 is technically classified as a trike, so has the same accessibility as a motorbike. It also has a far superior turning circle, fits smaller parking spaces than a standard small car and through offering all-wheel drive the Nobe 100 delivers great handling and stability, while offering superior grip and performance compared with two-wheel drive cars or bikes in wet and snowy conditions.
The concept and design of the Nobe 100 heralds from Estonia – a burgeoning innovation hub – employing leading electric vehicle engineers through a partnership with Tallinn Technical University. The decision to crowd-fund the project was taken to give the business a contemporary, agile business model with a community of advocates from the start.

Nobe founder and CEO, Roman Muljar commented:
“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. 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.”
“The Nobe 100 is a feat of engineering and design thinking.” Continued Muljar. “We haven’t designed a new car, we’ve designed a new way to build and experience a car. We’ve reinvented the car from the wheels up.”
