Driving through traffic is one of our biggest daily stresses. Public transportation can waste time unless you live in a city with a great system, and even then, it can be a messy, overpacked ordeal. Motorcycles are great, but not everywhere allows for lane splitting, which means you will just be waiting in traffic with no AC or a comfy seat. What to do? Commuters worldwide have found a more convenient way to get to work — electric bicycles. There are over 60 million cyclists in the United States, and this number doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

Forget pedals. This entry on our list of best electric bicycles is fully electric and does not need pedals. Of course, if we are going to list mobility scooters, URB-E has to be mentioned. These were among the first of their kind to go mainstream, and these scooters are pretty awesome.

The URB-E vehicles are small and have tiny tires, which makes them a bit weird to ride. Once you get used to them, they can be fun and convenient. Need to carry (or roll) it around? Just fold it up. Once you are ready to ride, it only takes a few seconds to unfold and get going.

The top-tier model is the URB-E Pro GT, costing $1,999. For nearly two grand, you get a vehicle that can go as fast as 18 mph and has a range of 20 miles.

It can also be equipped with carrying baskets, cup holders, mounts, bells, and more.
