Here are the most interesting electric bike-ish EVs of 2020 (so far)

As electric bicycles become increasingly prevalent, innovation in the industry has led to a slew of new designs and tech. Interestingly, much of that technology has been co-opted into new forms of personal electric vehicles that are e-bike-like but not quite electric bicycles.

Here are some of the most interesting examples we’ve seen this year.

A-Ride fat-tire electric scooter

The A-Ride is produced from scratch by the British Columbia, Canada-based company Alpine Riding.

It may look like an electric bicycle from some angles, but it’s actually a scooter due to its lack of pedals.

This isn’t your grandkid’s scooter, though. It is designed for mountain-bike style riding thanks to its dual suspension frame and fat tires. Together, those features allow it to tackle terrain that no other scooter could dream of.

The 1,000 W motor means it can absolutely rip across trails at speeds of up to 35 mph (56 km). And the large 1,000 Wh battery gives it an impressive range of 50 miles (80 km). Not too shabby!
