Tesla fans like to get accessories for their electric toys, whether related directly to the
car or not. However, there is a new, cool accessory that the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk,
has unveiled, and his fans will soon be rushing over themselves to get it!
Join us as we dive into how Elon Musk finally reveals the new Tesla e-bike!
Electric vehicles are the future! They are quiet, do not pollute, are more reliable, and are
cheaper to maintain. They are also very modern!
Tesla electric vehicles are especially great as they are class-leading, with some of the
longest ranges and best performances. However, the car is simply overkill for some
trips, and something more portable would be adequate. Other times, it just doesn’t make
sense to get your car on the road.
For these times mentioned, a bicycle would do. Say you are going down the street
alone or the weather is great, and you would like to explore the neighborhood. Why
drag out the beastly Tesla Model S Plaid charging in the carport? Or your teenager that
can’t drive yet.
The scenarios where a bike is great are endless. And if you would rather ride a Tesla-
branded electric bicycle, you are in luck, as your favorite company has unveiled an
electric bike. Tesla is not the first automobile company to make an electric bike, as
Ducati and Harley-Davidson do so too. Even BMW has one, and Mercedes is not
averse to making one!
Electric bicycles are an interesting proposition as they aim to improve what has existed
for decades. They should not be confused with electric motorcycles, as you still need to
pedal, only that you do not need to use as much strength. With electric motors, you can
navigate rougher terrains with less difficulty. Electric bicycles make excellent mountain
Many electric bicycle startups exist, with each trying to corner the market with a variety
of models, from premium models that cost a lot to budget models that will get you to
your destination without all the bells and whistles.
Some traditional bike makers are trying to get on the battery-powered bicycle trend too.
However, if any company can make an incredible electric bike, it is Tesla. The EV
maker has a great design team and can even attract talents from within the industry. Or
it could buy up an existing electric bike company, and Musk would mold it into what he
Which brings us to another question of why would Tesla want to make an electric
bicycle? Its stated goal is to help humankind move to zero-emission mobility from
internal combustion engines with all its pollution. Bicycles don’t produce carbon
emissions, to start with.
However, there is something about Musk, a principle that runs through how he operates
all his companies. Musk wants things done as efficiently and less expensive as
possible! That principle shows in how he approaches problem-solving.
If Musk sees that riding an electric bike is more efficient and cost-effective than driving
an electric car, you can be sure Musk will be persuaded to do it! And that is the case
anyway, as electric bicycles are way less expensive to ride over short distances than
driving an electric car!
But that’s not all the reason Tesla would make an electric bicycle because the electric
car maker simply enjoys making accessories for its vehicles! For example, remember
the ATV that accompanied the Cybertruck during its unveiling? Tesla has promised to
make the ATV available for purchase with the Cybertruck.
As an accessory, the Model B will appeal to Tesla electric vehicles who prefer an active
lifestyle and love to ride on nature bicycle trails. It could make for an interesting
weekend get-aways by driving to rural bike trails and hopping on their bikes.
At any rate, Musk had several years back hinted Tesla would make an electric bicycle!
So what does the electric Tesla bicycle look like? First, the name of the bicycle is Model
B which follows how Tesla generally names its cars.
Like any product you would expect to have passed through Tesla, the Model B is a
sleek device that turns heads everywhere it goes. It goes against normal bicycle design,
although it is not as polarizing as the Cybertruck design.
The Model B is predominantly white, just like the base model of Tesla cars before it
introduced the Midnight Silver Metallic coat. By the way, now that this color option exists
for its cars, the Model B might get the color option too, which would be totally rad!
Electric bikes from other manufacturers often look like they are carelessly thrown
together, with all the wiring hanging in full view. You can’t help feeling like the maker is
trying to force electrification on a standard bike. However, the Model B is far from that
as you won’t see a single piece of wire around the bike. Even the battery is well
concealed with obvious attention to detail. The result is a visually pleasing bicycle that
will win many awards and inspire lots of copycats!
