ELECTRIC BIKES

The company that makes cars, Volkswagen, has developed an electric bike that is collapsible to fit in the trunk of one's car.  It can recharge from its place in the spare tire well. It's sleek and cute, not unlike the original Beetle design, has a 12 mile range and a top speed of about the same, but it's more of an electric scooter than a bike.  I'm wishing it had pedals.

While I'm more of a traditional bike person, I like the idea. Maybe it can be applied to other motorized bike. It looks very cool.
