Skateboard platform using a highly integrated single motor/transmission/suspension/steering/wheel module. Notably NOT using a hub motor, and they have a stupidly compact small transmission as well.

Looks like the low slung Steinwinter tractor-trailer, featured in the Highwayman TV series in the 80's...

It's an interesting retrofit solution for the existing 5-th wheel trailer fleet, though I would have expected a better windbreak in front of the trailer front end.

elastomer tire, but kinda heavy/friction/slow, and if you bust a spoke (which seems to happen a fair bit with these), you gotta cut the tire off to get at the spokes...

Hybrid-Electric Military Motorcycle - Logos New Website
If they make a good multifuel series hybrid, I can imagine a lot of civilians who would be interested. BRD is making the base electric motorcycle chassis, but the multifuel rotary series hybrid generator engine maker is Cubewano (based off an UAV engine they made for a military secret UAV project). The SilentHawk being a two wheel drive motorcycle is interesting as well, but that suggests the possibility that a boost electric hub motor in the front, with a conventional ICE mechanical drivetrain with integrated generator for the back would possibly work as well. But the description was series hybrid so both wheels would be electric.
