The eCycle. A hybrid petrol/electric motorbike offering 180 mpg, a top speed of 80 mph and acceleration of 0-60 mph in 6 seconds.
‘To accelerate from a standstill, the control system senses the throttle input and then delivers torque to the electric motor. This causes the vehicle to begin moving forward and also causes the engine to begin spinning. At low speeds, no fuel is delivered to the engine, so the engine does not yet provide any power.’
