Getting around town on a bike is great until you have to get off of it or head up a hill on a warm day. Suddenly you have to worry about thieves or getting drenched in sweat before you show up to work. In an attempt to make sustainable transportation more ubiquitous (and to make a little scrilla on the side) Tern and Bosch teamed up to engineer a better, more versatile electronic bike, the Elektron.

Two things really stand out about the Elektron. First is that it’s incredibly easy to store. You can break it down completely in just 10 seconds, making it easy to bring with you on the subway, up into the office for storage under your desk, or in the trunk of your car. In addition to that simple but incredibly useful feature, this bike runs on a 400Wh Bosch battery, giving it a range of anywhere between 31 and 62 miles. The bike will be pre-launching on Kickstarter in October and will eventually retail for $3,500. [Purchase]
