If you thought electric bikes were always uncool and looked bad, think again. Here is an interesting bike from Panasonic that not only is high on technology but also is cool enough to be ridden by young males. Panasonic BE-ENV is a high class electric bike that lets you zip around the town with ease.
This new model is extremely light (15.7kg) and absorbs vibrations better than other e-bikes, according to the company. Panasonic says they especially focused on the general design and the lithium-ion battery to make the BE-ENV stand out of the crowd. What is more, this e-bike features an LCD monitor that allows its riders to choose from three driving modes to give the most economic use of the built-in Li-ion battery. In the BE-ENV eco-mode and depending on which battery option is installed, the bike can travel up to about 42 miles.
Build-to-order, the Panasonic BE-ENV is already available in Japan for $6,600 to $8,000. Unfortunately, there are no plans to sell the bike outside Japan at this point.
