Last January Volkswagen announced a two-year partnership with the Bikes Belong Foundation and People for Bikes (PFB), which means PFB now has a shiny new car to show off at their bike show booth, where staffers ask people to sign their petition asking legislators for more bike facility funding.
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.
