Tesla has begun to bundle interior colors and materials in order to streamline its production process. There are now five interior bundles options, each with the option to add a carbon fiber upgrade. The change in the Model X Design Studio follows the discontinuation of the Model S and Model X P90D and a reduction of exterior paint colors and other various options on its models.

Treehugger has reviewed the Blix Bike Vika+ e-bike. The $1,650 folding pedelec weighs about 48 pounds, and features a 350-watt electric motor in the rear hub. It assists at speeds of up to 18 mph, with a range of 35 miles. The reviewer liked its compact design, build quality, easy storage, and its price, but saw some room for improvement in the technology that keeps it from boosting at low speeds. He also says it could use some sort of feature to keep it securely folded when not in use. Check out the bike in the video above, and read the review at Treehugger.
