Touted as a “casual mini moped,” the M One e-bike can fit in your car’s trunk or hang off of the back of your vehicle. That’s because, just like the Motocompo, the new two-wheeler is just 3.8 feet (1.15 meters) long. When folded, the total height is 22.9 inches (or 58.3 cm).
The recent developments in the electric two-wheeler segment haven’t just been about providing performance and range but also about making urban mobility more accessible for all. And that’s the idea behind M One as well; commuters living in the suburbs could pack their foldable e-bike in the trunk and drive their car to the outskirts of the city. Then they could park the car there and use the M One to get around the city more easily.
The M One features an integrated frame made from a magnesium-aluminum alloy that makes it both durable and lightweight. It has a single-sided swing-arm and protruding LED indicators, and FELO designed its body with attachment points for different modular accessories like Bluetooth speakers or auxiliary lighting.
Kicking along the foldable moped is a 400-watt 1.34-hp hub motor fed by a 48V, 20-Ah Lithium-ion battery pack. While there is no mention of top speed, FELO claims the M One will provide an estimated range of about 60 miles (97 km) on a single charge.
Another interesting feature of the M One is its V2L (vehicle to load) capability. The battery pack, paired with a 220VAC 50Hz outlet, will allow the electric two-wheeler to act as a mobile power bank for charging electronics and mobile devices.
And don’t let yourself be fooled by its petite size, as you’ll also be able to use the M One to carry stuff around thanks to integrated aluminum and magnesium luggage racks.
At the recent Tokyo Motorcycle Show, FELO announced a 380,000 yen (around $2,800) price tag for the M One on the Japanese market and said it plans to deliver the first units of the fully-electric moped in the fourth quarter of 2023.
