Volkswagen’s research and development chief Dr. Urich Hackenberg recently debuted a new electric bike concept at the recent 2010 Beijing Auto Show. The VW bik.e is an electric bike that is designed to quickly fold down and fit in the spare tire compartment of a car. The bike has a range of over 12 miles and has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour. When the batteries are drained, the bike can apparently be recharged by a car’s DC current or plugged into a typical household AC outlet. VW does intend develop the idea towards a production version. No date has been announced as to when the bik.e might go on sale or whether it will be offered as an option when purchasing a VW vehicle.
