BOXX electric bike: two wheels, four corners, all-electric transport for one



Has bicycle design reached its pinnacle? Or are electric bike manufacturers just not trying hard enough? The YikeBike begs to differ, and here joining it is BOXX Corporation's diminutive BOXX. Coming in at just under a meter (or 36-inch inches) long, the 120 pound aluminum "bike" has a top speed of 35 miles per hour and can even haul up to 300 pounds of heft. Yet, despite that compact footprint, the company hasn't skimped on tech, as it boasts traction control, anti-lock brakes and yes, even LED lights. Available in one of ten colors, $3,995 nets you a base 40-mile range model, which can optionally be doubled to 80 by ticking the $599 CORE 2 box. And for those willing to spruce even further, there's a $149 heated seat and $349 1-hour charger on offer. Ready to literally hunker down on electric mobility? Go on, peep the source links below -- do it, we've even linked the configurator.



That thing is sweet. I heard it can drift into corners at 90 degree angles.

I wear knee pads so I can really lean into the corners. And then I insert a 3.5 inch floppy into the front of it because the bike chassis is made from my old PC tower.

HAHA. Maybe I'll pick a long straight street like Western so when I eventually get tired and ditch the computer, eh bike, at least I'll have hopefully reached Shinsengumi Yakitori at that point.

You can turn corners by ricocheting off of obstacles like a billiard ball. Beaten

Infiniti's Sexy-Looking Emerg-E Supercar Breaks Cover, See the First Official Photos



February 25, 2012

If you weren't content with the patent images of Infiniti's new supercar concept that we showed you earlier this month, you'll be happy to know that the first official pictures of the studycemerged on the internet today, less than two weeks before its public debut at the 82nd Geneva International Auto Salon.

We will admit that we weren't exactly wowed by the patent renderings, but our opinion change after we laid eyes on the real photos of Infiniti Emerg-E concept.

The Japanese premium brand's study is an impressive looking supercar with what we could even dare to describe as an Italian finesse in its styling. Of course, you'll find Infiniti's latest styling cues such as the pinched rear quarter window and the bulbous front grille, but it all works out nicely.

Infiniti has said that the Emerg-E will be propelled by a mid-mounted range-extender drivetrain comprising an electric motor and an internal combustion engine.

That's all we know for now, but with the Geneva show just around the corner, it's only a matter of days before Infiniti graces us with an official release detailing the concept model.

I think it's more attractive than the Lexus LFA.
