@monday electric vehicles… so his means an ebike counts 😉
For the past threee years have ridden the Karmic Koben S. Lovely, but heavy ride. But, it replaced my auto for the local bits. And aside from its current issue (it doesn’t turn on), has been a reasonable vehicle.
I do think e-bikes are a solid option for some folks. But, like electric autos, they need to be lighter. Mine is in the 55-60lb range. Which works when it gets up to speed, but not so for carrying. I think 30-40lbs is a sweet spot. And at such a weight unlocks things for many folks.
Way more on that topic. But yea, in terms of EVs, I think local and reasonable pace is where EVs excel (max 10-15mi from home if you will). To that end, the ebike is a solid chap.
Now, if we’re talked electric autos, would love see more classic autos switched to electric. Half-wondering if I’d go to the classic Mini with the BMW i3’s dual setup as an ideal one for more highway needs.
