Most electric bicycles on the market are heavy and difficult to carry around. But the Elektron from Tern and Bosch is a new kind of e-bike: light, compact, and able to fold up small enough to fit in a car trunk.
The Elektron is capable of driving 31-62 miles on a single charge, making it perfect for most daily commutes. It runs on a 400Wh Bosch battery and can fold up in just ten seconds. The bike is engineered to resist extreme temperatures, so it’s usable year-round.
Unfortunately, the bike isn’t for sale just yet, but the company plans to open for preorders in October through Kickstarter. They claim this approach will yield valuable public feedback before the product goes to market.
