Volkswagen dancing girls

And there’s also something in this video about an e-bike that folds small enough to replace the spare tire in your car trunk.

Not sure I’d really call this an “e-bike” since there’s no provision at all to pedal it — it’s more like a really slow electric scooter (top speed: 12.5 MPH). Unlike Lexus and their plans for the Yamaha-built ebike they showed last December at the Tokyo Motor Show, though, VW says they plan to make this folding scooter available for sale.

    Interesting. It really isn't a bike though. What is the definition of a bike?

    Its kind of a hybrid bike, a h-bike?

    Wow, that's a spiffy little… whatever it is. Like a Segway, except you sit on it, which allows for a much sleeker design. Or like a power chair, except it has two wheels, which allows for a much sleeker design.
