Sanyo Eneloop Electric Bicycle Review by Scooter Underground

Sanyo Eneloop Electric Bicycle at Scooter Underground

We are pleased to announce that the folks at the Scooter Underground will soon have a couple of Sanyo eneloop bicycles for testing. As soon as we get them, we are getting to work to put them through their paces. We will report back to you to tell you how they perform in real world Canadian conditions.

We”ll have “plump” people riding them on cold rainy days…. up hills! All  sorts of stuff that has been the demise of many electric bikes we have tested in the past. What is the real battery life? How long does it really take to charge? How smooth is the direct drive motor? We need lots of answers and soon we will have them.

So far, the homework we have done on the Sanyo eneloop looks really good, but we have to see for ourselves. We did the same thing with the eZee bikes before giving them our stamp of approval.

Stay tuned. We will have lots of new photos and some YouTube videos. The bikes should be here by mid-Feb and we will have a comprehensive early report shortly afterword. We will also publish long-term evaluations of the Sanyo eneloop.

Here are what some other blogs are saying about the eneloop electric bikes and electric bikes in general – the time has come!:
