Every day it seems, a spectacular e-mobility product is unveiled to the world. From robust trucks and ultra-efficient electric cars, all the way down to tiny e-scooters, this industry has been expanding at an astonishing rate which none of us saw coming. The convenience of these products for people everywhere is undeniably incomparable.
Get ready, the Consumer Electronics Show is coming to Nevada on January 6-8th 2023! Brands from around the globe will be there with their newest products and technology designed to produce a more connected future. One of these inventions that you won’t want to miss out on? The electric bike made by Japanese startup ICOMA – it looks awesome.
Introducing the Tatamel Bike: a revolutionary product that transforms from an easily storable box into an e-bike. Perfect for those in need of transportation over short distances, this bicycle is not only adorable but also incredibly convenient with its space-saving capabilities. Whether you’re commuting to work or running errands, the Tatamel Bike makes it easy to hop on and go.
When folded, the Tatamel Bike can fit in almost any vehicle – including small cars. But be careful when moving it! This bike is a hefty 110 pounds. Alternatively, you could keep this machine tucked away under your desk or in a corner of your living room. The concept itself might not work well for those with open roads and plenty of space to drive around, but if you’re navigating through an area like business centers, tightly-knit neighborhoods, or large complexes such as schools or offices then this gadget will definitely come in handy.
The bike itself is equipped with 10-inch wheels and a powerful hub-integrated 600-watt motor. Pedals are not included, so you’ll be solely dependent on the electric motor’s capabilities. It has been tested to reach up to 25 miles per hour with its 12Ah, 51V battery pack offering an impressive 18-mile range from one single charge.
Not only does the ICOMA have a USB charging port so you can power up your mobile devices, but it also offers an optional AC output. This makes it easier than ever to use other electronics such as laptops and TVs – even coffee makers.
Although the Tatamel Bike is an exciting and practical addition, its high price tag of $4,000 may put off some customers. It’s clear that it functions more as a toy than a real e-mobility solution; however, this concept could be paving the way for more attainable products in the near future.
