Audi recently released the prototype of a cycle that combines muscle power with an electric drive. Described as a high performance e-bike for sports, it is comibination of Audi’s ultra sleek engineering and “e-tron” connect. The bike has an airy frame that enables a low center of gravity and keeps the overall volume small and compact. The bike also has a lithium-ion battery which gets fully charged in just 2.5 hours. While cycling, the rider can chose between modes such as pure muscle power or pure battery power or even a combination of both.
Most importantly, the bike can be connected to a smart phone to make it perform an assortment of feats, check battery status etc.
This probably is the future of allour humble bicycles.
