Berlin inventor, Stefan Gulas, has created a electric bicycle. Unlike typical electric bikes that are merely battery powered; Gulas’s design requires the rider to keep pedaling, and amplifies the rider’s effort by a factor of 50. The E-Rockit can hit speeds of up to 50mph!

The Nano-Phosphate Lithium batteries have a range of 60-80 km and an expected life of about 10 years. The first production run of 10 bikes will be this year and have a price tag of about $40,000 USD each.

  1. Hi, interesting topic – I have just bought an electric bike that I use to get to work everyday. I Just plug in at work to recharge it and then cycle home.
    Absolutely love the bike, it was cheap and simple to use. I got it from http://www.elecbikeco.com they seemed good but I am sure there are many other companies out there too.
    Good luck

  2. You can get a three wheeler version in Germany, with a canopy over it. It is so fast that it is good enough for the (slow lane) of UK motorways. It’s called a swingtrike, and retails for about 2000 Euro.
