Coinciding with the first dealership dedicated to the BMW i sub-brand on London’s Park Lane, BMW also debuted the i Pedelec – a new foldable electric bicycle that encapsulates the ingenuity we’ve come to expect from the luxury German automobile manufacturer.
Crafted to complement the i3 hatchback, two of the electric bikes can fit comfortably in the trunk of the electric supermini. Equipped with an electric motor featuring an electronic management system and a high-performance battery that assists the rider’s pedaling up to 16 mph, the frame has been designed out of a durable aluminum and carbon fiber blend. With a full battery charge capable of a 25-mile jaunt, and no need to acquire a license or insurance, the i Pedelec is truly a weekend warrior.
