The Matra MS1 Electric Bike


This could be a great commuting machine — it’s an electric-powered bike designed by the French company Matra. The bike was recently introduced at the Paris Motorshow. It has a range of 60 miles, in addition to the mileage you add by using pedal power. It has a top speed of 30 miles per hour, but this is an artificial limit set on the motor.


It can be rigged to go faster, but officially, you’d have to get a license to drive it, because it would be considered a moped. The bike also incorporates disc brakes and a regenerative braking system — nice.

This bike should be available for sale in Europe in the not-too-distant future, but no word on whether it’ll make it to the States. It will probably be priced around $5000.
