Sanyo Eneloop Electric Bike: The Future?

Sanyo Eneloop electric bike

The Sanyo Eneloop is $300 off for the summer!


The Sanyo Eneloop electric bike blasted on to the scene in early 2010 as a new breed of electric bike. It's considered a hybrid electric bike, or one that uses an automatic pedelec motor system. This type of electric bike is generally more efficient than a throttle-powered bike, and the Sanyo Eneloop can travel for 20-30 miles on a single charge due to its Lithium battery.

Not only does the Eneloop sport a lightweight battery and a smooth electric motor wheel, but it also has a sweet looking frame. The easy step-through frame has a comfortable, upright riding position, and it comes with fenders and an aluminum rear rack.

Since the Sanyo Eneloop electric bike debuted, it has been one of the most popular electric bikes on the market. It's also practically maintenance free, with an internal 3-speed hub, a rack and fenders, and front and rear lights that are wired into the battery.

After six months, the popularity of the Sanyo Eneloop drove it's price down to $1999, which is $300 less than the original retail price. At this price, the Sanyo Eneloop is a better deal than most other electric bikes at the same price, especially with all of the accessories included. If this is still too expensive, Sanyo has developed another version of the Eneloop without a rack and lights, and includes a sportier hybrid frame. The price on this stripped-down model is only $1699, making it one of the lowest priced Lithium electric bikes out there!

As one of the leading manufacturers of long-lasting Lithium batteries in the world, Sanyo has surprisingly created one of the best electric bikes ever made. At this price, it's foolish to look at any other electric bike.

The Sanyo Eneloop electric bike is available for purchase at NYCeWheels in New York.

It makes the motor power feel smooth and natural, as if turning it on made you a really strong rider all of a sudden. Intelligent pedal assistance puts you in control of the Sanyo Eneloop electric bike, not the motor.

2. Regenerative braking

Unlike most electric bikes, which can only dissipate the battery as you ride, the new Sanyo eneloop electric bike can actually recharge the battery as you pedal. Because it's front hub motor also doubles as a dynamo generator, the Sanyo Eneloop electric bike can recharge its battery when the brakes are applied going down hill. This feature greatly extends the range of you can travel with motor assistance, up to 40 miles!

3. Ultra light design

The Sanyo Eneloop electric bike is one of the lightest bikes on the market, thanks to the latest in motor and battery technology. Sanyo, which has been manufacturing rechargeable batteries for years, equipped their first electric bike with a lithium ion battery weighing a mere 3.4 pounds! Compare that with older technology batteries that can weight up to 10 pounds or more.

The new Sanyo Eneloop electric bike represents a new generation of hybrid electric bikes. These bikes, which combine human and electric motor power can go further than electric bikes could ever before, and because they look and feel like a regular bike, they are much more fun to ride.
