The JackRabbit is smaller than a typical bicycle, measuring roughly four feet (120 cm) in length. The short wheelbase and minimal front and rear overhang enable riders to exert pinpoint control, even in mixed traffic situations. Once the destination is reached, the vehicle’s flip-out folding footrests and rotating handlebar stem reduce its depth to a mere 6 inches – ideal for areas with restricted stowage space.
Charging to the Rescue
The JackRabbit’s aluminum frame contributes to a total weight of under 20 lb (9 kg), meaning users won’t work up a sweat carrying their vehicle when the road or trail ends. Back in action, riders can reach speeds of up 18 mph (almost 30 km) in serene silence, courtesy of a 36-volt brushless DC hub motor. Real-world testing of production-ready prototypes has revealed an average 13 mile (21 km) distance traveled on a single charge, and the compact battery pack can recharge from empty in about two hours.
