    I wondering if VW really thinks of this as a replacement for the spare tire. Maybe things are a little different in China, but the last two blowouts I’ve had have been on busy Interstate highways where bikes are prohibited.

    Still, it’s the DC charging is pretty clever, and you’re right: amazing coverage for e-bikes.

    In response to the VW concept:

    Nice idea with regard to the integration in existing vehicles. Falls short for those vehicles that mount the spare wheel on the cars underside.

    Personally I would feel like a bit of a lazy toad riding that around a city while everyone else pedals. I am a motorist and a cyclist btw. I feel it would’ve been more socially acceptable if it had been visually closer to a scooter than a bicycle though I understand this is more challenging in terms of space efficiency.

    What happens if it’s dark, snowing and -10 centigrade? If you’re too incompetent to change a tyre, how will you be able to set out on the VW ‘bike’ to get help. How will you know where to go? What if you’re in a suit and it’s raining? Most people just call a breakdown service or carry a can of tyre weld.

    Both concepts look to be mini-velos… an understandable need for the VW folder, but more interesting on the Lexus.

    Part of a greater trend?

    The problem here in the UK with the VW Bik.e is that it is not road legal since electric bikes have to have pedals as well as an electric motor. Otherwise they are classed as full mopeds and the riders have to wear helmets and have a moped driving licence and the bikes have to be taxed and insured. Personally, I hope VW lobby the Department of Transport to remove the requirement for pedals since a pedal-less bike is a lot easier to store in the boot.
