4.7 Meter Electric Bike – wacky Chinese electric bicycle vies for Guinness world record

longebike

You’ve got to hand it to the clever Chinese, they know how to enjoy themselves in a collective way. Just look at this very cosy 4.7 Meter Electric Bicycle, which can hold up to 9 people comfortably as it presumably stutters along the road. We say presumably because we’re wondering how many batteries you need to haul that amount of cargo on just two wheels?

The e for elongated e-bike is actually a stunt for an electric bike shop in Zhengzhou in central China, designed to attract customers to buy stuff, and we’ve got to say it probably does the job quite well.

We’re not even going to speculate on how long it takes to charge at night, or in fact how you park it when you’ve finished. And what happens when Dad wants to pop down the shops for some milk, does he need a team of helpers to keep it upright at the traffic lights? So many questions and no answers, alas.
