So I'm shopping for Pedelec bike (a bicycle that "assists" the rider with a boost from an electric motor when pedaling) and several of the newer models feature the same Panasonic cells as the current generation Model S. I find it funny to read these descriptions as having "Tesla batteries", but it got me thinking. Why wouldn't Tesla (motors division) develop a Pedelec bike, especially with the newer high density cells? 1) Gigafactory capacity is already dedicated to Model 3 and Powerwall II production; 2) prohibitively expensive to develop and market an EV to a relatively small target group; 3) not sexy enough to gain any traction against the other corporate initiatives. The biggest drawback to a lot of the current Pedelec models is the weight and bulk to deliver 17KWh to drive a 500w motor at 48v. Smaller lighter cells could be a game changer to integrate them into the frame of the bike and avoid that ugly black lump on the down tube or rear rack. Sure, it might be a loss leader, but it would be a great way to get butts into the showrooms, where the virtues of a Model 3 might just sway someone who wouldn't consider a "car", but likes the idea of pollution-free transportation. I seem to recall several failed attempts by other carmakers to bundle an auto with a bike, but as a Model S owner, I'd love to see what the design group could come up with to reflect the design aesthetic (and color palette) of our cars.
