I have a IZIP electric bike.

General Motors announced last year it was getting into the electric bike business. Now, GM has given this new brand a name — ARĪV — as well as names for its two electric bikes, and some information about its go-to-market plan.

$3000 for a BICYCLE that'll only go 15mph?


I guess their counting on a VERY good ad campaign.

Is there any reason why these vehicles can not be charged using solar power or wind power?

Unless they have a battery pack with much longer life or something else I'm missing that is awfully expensive. You can buy a lot of bike for $3K, even one that is electric.
