What do you get when you cross a bicycle [2] with an electric scooter [3]? Probably something like Ultra Motor [4]‘s “Light Electric Vehicle,” the A2B [5]. Silent and stylish, the A2B is designed for urban and suburban commuters (check out that comfy, oversized seat). It’s like your bicycle, except with a lithium ion battery-powered motor that you can plug in and charge at any ordinary electric socket. And if you run out of power on the road, no worries — just start pedaling.

The bike can go for 20 miles at up to 20 mph, and you can double that range by buying an extra battery pack. It has a lightweight aluminum body (73 lbs.) with full suspension — check out the rest of the specs here [5]. The bike is outfitted with two bags and two baskets for your stuff. This hybrid [6] offers a relaxing, emissions-free ride — and as the web site says, it “allows riders to get as much or as little exercise as they choose.”
