An automotive e-bike design makes perfect sense, especially when you consider two-wheelers as attractive alternatives to cars. This electric bicycle by Kasper Jensen bridges the gap between pushbikes and full-on vehicles, as far as both aesthetics and functionality are concerned.

The designer doesn't get into the specs of this concept assisted conveyance, but he has built an operational prototype. Kasper was able to configure the motor and many electrical components into a slim casing that molds the the familiar shape of a bicycle frame. The thickened body is rendered beautifully by taking design cues from autos, featuring smoothed contours similar to the ones you'd find on the hoods of sports cars. This automotive e-bike design marks a possible change in styles and preferences for cyclists' treasured means of transportation.
