After a flurry of luxury vehicles, German automaker Volkswagen has popped up an eco-smart bicycle without the pedals at Auto China 2010 that fold quickly down into a flat disc to fit into the spare tire compartment. Combining unique form with function, the battery-powered bike can reach the top speed of 20 km/h (12.5 mph) with a range of 20 kilometers (12.5 miles). Ideal for short distance rides, the new VW bik.e is essentially a supplement to your car. You may refill the batteries of the bik.e with both your car’s DC current and a typical AC plug. Check out the video after the jump.
