San Francisco-based startup Lit Motors have designed a new all-electric vehicle called the C-1, which they hope to get into production by the end of 2014. The two-wheeler mixes the practicality of a car with the mobility of a motorcycle. It focuses on safety, with a steel unibody and glass enclosure with reinforced doors to protect those inside from accidents. There are also electronically-controlled gyroscopes under the floor, which keep it balanced on its wheels, even in the event of an impact or collision.

The C-1 weighs 800 pounds and features familiar car-like controls and space behind the seat for a passenger or cargo. It will boast a range of 200 miles per charge and a top speed of 120 mph. The vehicle will be priced around $24,000 and drivers will need a motorcycle license in order to operate it. Watch the video below to see more of the C-1:
