Lexus’ new hybrid concept is a… bicycle

Lexus Hybrid Bicycle Concept

Here is a new hybrid concept from Lexus called the Lexus Hybrid Bicycle. According to Lexus, the Hybrid Bicycle is a “design concept the captures the fundamental engineering and design values of the brand, but with two wheels rather than four.”

The concept coincides with the announcement of Lexus’ title sponsorship of the Great British Bike Ride, a four-day charity ride that will see hundreds of cyclists following a course from Land’s End to the home of English rugby at Twickenham.

Power comes from the pedal of the rider increased by help of the front wheel with a 240W electric motor, kept running by a 25.9V lithium-ion battery. The Lexus Hybrid Bicycle Concept has a choice of Eco or Power modes and, as with Lexus Hybrid Drive, there is an energy regeneration function that helps recharge the battery by capturing kinetic energy generated under braking.

Lexus says that “there are no current plans for the Lexus Hybrid Bicycle to become a production model.”
