Cake’s new electric ATV doubles as a semi-autonomous farm hand
The Kibb was designed to haul, tow, and even be programmed for tasks around the farm.
Cake announced the Kibb, its electric all-terrain vehicle meant for sustainable and responsible farming. The Kibb emphasizes creating the least amount of impact on the Earth as possible, whether or not someone is operating it.
The Kibb came from the desire to improve the farming industry since it still contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. Cake says there’s a lack of sustainable options when it comes to transportation for the agriculture industry.
The fully-electric design of the Kibb means there will be no emissions from the ATV. Cake is also building it with some level of autonomy that allows The Kibb to be programmed for certain tasks around the farm.
The Kibb can haul things around on its flatbed, but it can also tow around farm equipment. If you need to plug in your power tools, the Kibb doubles as a mobile power station.
Modularity is a big part of the Kibb’s design since it has several attachment points that will be compatible with different ATV accessories.
The design comes from Fanny Jonsson, who completed her master’s thesis at Umeå Institute of Design and later interned at Cake. The result of her thesis was the Kibb.
The Kibb is still very much in the design and development process, so Cake hasn’t even opened up preorders yet. You can still follow Cake’s progress by signing up for emails, which will give you an alert as to when preorders start. So far, Cake says that the Kibb is expected to go into production in 2025.
