The Ultra Motor A2B Bicycle/Electric Scooter combines the ease of an electric scooter with the practicality of a bicycle and may be your choice for an urban commuter. Unassisted, it will run for 20 miles at 20mph on a single charge, doubling that range (but not the speed) with an extra battery pack. It features a Kleenex box–sized battery that pops out, which is cool because the bike can stay downstairs while you recharge its battery. Ultra Motor is currently selling the A2B in both Europe and the States, though its ultimate plan is to create citywide networks of short term rental vehicles.
