Twikes: Quick AND Emission-Free

Looking for a completely emission-free way to get to work without getting wet? Try a Twike. This cross between a bike and a scooter seats two, is enclosed, and can run using human assistance or solely on battery power. It has a great range--up to 80 miles on the battery alone, thanks to recaptured braking energy, and a couple of riders pedaling hard can get closer to 120 miles. The Twike is quick, too, and can reach speeds of up to 55 miles per hour. Originally created in Switzerland, the Twike has gained enough popularity that it's now available in the US. It might not make you any friends on the interstates, but it's a great way to get around town. [Source: Luxist]
