But a new device is making it easy to increase the […]

We’re proud to announce Electrek is sponsoring the American Solar Challenge this year. The 2018 event (PDF Flyer), which begins next weekend, will see racers take their Solar-powered “cars” from Omaha, Nebraska to Bend, Oregon loosely through the Oregon Trail.

Check out this $2,500 solar-charging belt-driven electric pedal car

Electric bicycles are great, combining a lightweight vehicle with near-effortless propulsion. But sometimes you just want to sit back and relax a bit more. That’s when an electric pedal car might be right for you. Now there’s an interesting new option coming to the admittedly small US electric pedal car industry: the Screecher.

Is this little four-wheeler an electric car or an e-bike? Apparently it’s both

The DryCycle technically isn’t really an electric car, even though it looks pretty car-like from the right angles (and when its bubble top is lowered). It’s more accurate to call it a fully enclosed, electric pedal-assisted quadricycle.

ONYX RCR First ride: Flying fast on this 60 mph electric moped

An electric moped in the truest sense of the word “moped,” the ONYX RCR is a beast of an electric motorbike. I’ve admired this bike for nearly two years now.

FREY AM1000 e-bike review: 1.5kW and almost 40 mph, what else can I say?

The FREY AM1000 electric mountain bike is something of an enigma. You might not know it by looking at it, but the unassuming electric mountain bike is packing more power than almost any other e-bike and has the suspension required to elegantly navigate even the most technical terrain. If the AM1000 was an olympic athlete, […]

Gazelle Medeo T10+ might be the ultimate commuter ebike

Last year, I reviewed the Gazelle CityZen T9 ebike and thought it was a fantastic offering for those people content with 20mph assist speeds on smoother roads.

When you first look at a Rungu, you sort of scratch your head and think “What is that?” From the side, it looks like a fairly standard fat tire electric bicycle. But from any other angle, you can’t miss the odd double front wheels. And so when the Rungu team invited me out to San […]
