Ford Unveils eBike Concept That Can Be Stowed In Your Boot
If you want design of a bicycle and the speed of a motorbike, eBikes are probably your best bet. They are generally shaped to look like bicycles but come with motors that will allow them to move faster than your regular bike, sometimes giving riders the much needed boost to climb up steep hills.
While Ford might be known as a carmaker, the company has dabbled in other projects and recently the company has shown off its eBike concept on Twitter. Dubbed the MoDe:Flex, this is an eBike that can be disassembled by taking it apart in two equal pieces which can then be stored inside the boot of any Ford car, according to the company.
So why a Ford car? Why not any car that might have the trunk space? Well according to Ford on their YouTube video it seems that in the future Ford cars could come with the ability to charge your bike’s electric motor while you’re driving to your destination, a feature which presumably would be an exclusive to Ford’s vehicles.
Unfortunately it seems that at the moment, the Ford MoDe:Flex is currently in its prototype phase and Ford has yet to reveal the bike’s specs or when it will become available, if at all. However this isn’t the first time that Ford has dabbled in eBikes, like with the MoDe:Pro, so we can only assume that the specs should be somewhat similar.
