Volkswagen Bik.e Concept: Green Mobility Anytime, Anywhere

The green movement has already invaded the auto industry. These days, all the newest automotive innovations seem to revolve around being “green”. Hybrid vehicles have suddenly become the new trend. It’s not surprising, then, to see manufacturers also turn their attention to two-wheel mobility when it comes to their green innovations. Volkswagen has done just that with its introduction of the Volkswagen Bik.e concept at the Auto China 2010.

The Volkswagen Bik.e is an electric bicycle powered by a motor that you only need to charge. It looks like all other normal bicycles you’ll see in the streets today, save for the absence of a pedal. It’s ideal for use in urban areas, as a substitute to your car whenever you find the need to park it somewhere far from your actual destination (blame the increasing number of vehicles and the limited parking space available), or if you just want a ride that will help you maneuver easily through traffic (all thanks to the Bik.e’s small size). Featuring a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour, the said bicycle can travel up to 12.5 miles.

This new Volkswagen product packs together environmental friendliness, practicality, and style into a sleek innovation that you can store in your spare tire compartment. When not in use, you can fold it down easily into a flat disc, place it in the compartment for your spare tire, and then carry it with you wherever you go.

The Bik.e is the very first two-wheel drive from Volkswagen. Right now, it’s still just a concept innovation, though hopefully, it will be in the market soon. If you want something similar, you can find an electric bicycle at Amazon.
