Ultra Motor Europa – retro-styled electric bicycle

Europa_2

If you’re on the look out for an eco-friendly way of getting to work, buy a bike. If that sounds a bit too much like hard work, the Ultra Motor Europa could be an option.

Styled like a classic Dutch bike, the Europa offers more than pedal power – a lithium-ion battery to power you to work and back. It’s capable of hitting 20mph and covering an area of 20 miles. And it charges by plugging into the mains.

And should you feel a burst of energy coming on, there’s also 7-speed Shimano gears to assist with some authentic cycling. Not sure about a UK price, but US readers can pick one up for around $1,900 (around £950).
