The Faraday Porteur is a stylish e-bike, that was first unveiled a few years ago, that has hit the market for a price of $3,500. This e-bike, which is available in green and white, has a number of interesting features but its highlight is surely the fact that it offers up to 32 km of pedal-assist.

The e-bike's power button is situated on the frame, while a handlebar-mounted thumb switch can be used to activate the pedal-assist feature for assisted cycling. The thumb switch also activates a boost feature which makes it easier to ride up hills. Interestingly, this e-bike doesn't require throttle control as the pedal-assist system automatically adjusts to your pedaling pace.

The Faraday Porteur is an elegantly designed and super-functional e-bike that is suitable for long urban rides or other situations where a rider may appreciate a bit of assistance.
