Japanese automaker Lexus has come up with a new hybrid bicycle concept. It supplements the rider’s pedal power to the rear wheel with a 25.9V lithium-ion battery pack and a 240W electric motor driving the front wheel, making it both-wheel drive. The company says the battery of the Lexus Hybrid Bicycle requires around 2 hours for a getting a complete charge. Featuring a frame finished in carbon fiber, the hybrid bike makes use of an automatic eight-speed internal gear system to enhance your riding experience without leaving any carbon footprint.

wow I love the design and I think its awesome and would totally sport this bike!!
where can you buy these bikes?
wow … looks great – good innovation
Really interesting design, the idea of the front wheel being powered while the rear is left only to the rider seems unique.
This looks like a bicycle with a chain made of rubber and a design that doesn’t accomplish anything. My guess is that it was design to look a little different and through that, they are able to add their brand and up the price of a upper level bicycle by a few magnitudes.
I think it is hard to draw conclusions not seeing it in reality. I don’t think that the only difference is in materials.
