Using a combination of both pedal and electric power, the 'GinzVelo' is looking to set itself apart from other types of hybrid bicycles on the market.

Labeling itself as a 'Human Electric Hybrid,' the designers of this space-age looking piece of transportation are calling it the future of sustainable travel in cities and suburbs. Although light enough at 85 pounds to be pedaled by foot, the hybrid bike also uses a sophisticated motor and battery to travel between 75 and 100 miles on a single charge.

Although capable of reaching speeds of 20 miles per hour when running on battery, due to the bike's light aerodynamic design it's able to reach speeds of 35 mph using only pedal power. And unlike some other hybrid bicycles, the 'GinzVelo' is made from everyday bike parts making repairs both easy and affordable.
