The Chop-e, an electric two-wheeler, isn't for everyone, but it is a novel approach to transportation. Here's a look at the machine out of Estonia.
The Chop-e electric bike, built by a trio of Estonians, is an elongated, low-slung machine. It's got a top speed of 35km/h (about 22mph) and a range of 75km (about 47 miles).
The Chop-e electric bike houses its battery inside the massive rear wheel. The prototype weighs 60kg (132 pound) due to its steel frame, but the company plans to move to lighter aluminum.
A twist throttle on the right-hand handlebar grip controls speed, but the green button sets cruise control. The red button is a horn.
