The Genesis EV-X7: Axle Corporation's Hybrid Electric Bike

The EV-X7 has a magnetic motor built into its rear wheel. The motor is a hybrid between a electromagnet and a permanent magnet. It was designed by the Axle Group in Japan. The bike has a range of about 110 miles (180 kilometers) on a single charge, and a top speed of about 92 mph (150 kilometers per hour). The company plans to start selling a mini-scooter version of the magnetic-powered bike next year, which will be priced at about $2100. Running on neither petrol nor diesel, the manufacturers say it is almost noiseless the motor is seven times more cost efficient than scooters running on petrol. The battery can be charged at home, with a full charge taking just a little over six hours.
