About a month ago, we heard about Sanyo's new Eneloop electric assist bike. It has made quite a splash at CES, and is one of the most beautiful electric bikes we've seen. Not only is it gorgeous, but it's at a cost that is very competitive. Designed from the ground up to be an electric transportation vehicle, it has a beautiful shape along with powerful capabilities. Check out our video interview showing off the bike.
While the Schwinn bike with the Toshiba battery technology from last year's CES was impressive, it looks clunky and thrown together compared to this bike from Sanyo, designed to have all the technology seamlessly integrated into the frame.
Available for about $2,300 in Best Buy, the Eneloop Bike just might be the bike that transitions us to electric assist bikes as a more primary form of transportation than cars, especially considering America's love affair with cars may be fading. Check out the specifications and more details here.
