When it comes to electric vehicles , form sometimes takes a back seat to function. Not with the M-1 e-bike from Marrs Cycles ! This gorgeous cruiser looks like the offspring of a vintage Schwinn  and a Harley , and with an electric motor and a top speed of over 20 mph, you can ride along with the rest of the pack.
Both stylish and green, the M-1 e-bike  features a lithium battery pack that gives it a range of 20 miles on a single charge. Top speeds exceed 20 mph (although US law prohibits going that fast). The handcrafted frame, fabricated in Southern California, pulls inspiration from Harley Davidson, bmx, and motocross cycles. At a price beginning at $7,000, the EV  is certainly a top-of-the-line, luxury ride.
