Faraday Bicycles' crowd-funded Electronic bike has a purpose-built design combining the speed and exhilaration of a state-of the-art e-bike with the timeless looks of a classic European city bike. It weighs less than 18 Kg, but still delivers a range of over 32 Km.

The bicycle's intuitive and low-profile handlebar controls are complemented by an E Ink display that provides information on the bike's battery status. The limited edition, US-made pilot production run will begin shipping in early 2014, and is entirely sold out. Pre-orders for Faraday's second production run, with an expected ship date of Q3 2014, can be placed now, for $3,500.
