If you're worried that the future will make us lose our sense of style, you should check out what the e-bike industry has been up to. In order to accommodate the electric motors and batteries, designers have thrown off the shackles of minimalist design to make retro-styled vehicles that ooze '50s B-movie chic. Vintage Electric's new Cruz is one such offering, boasting a 1900's motorcycle design and a top speed of 36 miles per hour.

Of course, as much like Marlon Brando in The Wild One, the rugged exterior hides a gentle inside. After all, this electronic bike comes with a 3,000 watt, 3-phase brushless electric motor and a 52 v battery that, the company promises, will last you around 30,000 miles. There's a range of 30 miles which should be helped by Vintage Electric's proprietary regenerative braking, but if that fails you, then recharging should only take two hours.

Now, all of this sounds expensive, and it is, but not as expensive as you may have expected, since the whole package can be picked up for $4,995 -- a lot less than some electric vehicles we could mention. The Vintage Electric Cruz is available in three colors, Fiesta Red, Aqua Blue/Green and Cola Black/Brown and is available... from... now.
