The UPQ Bike meo1 is a new lightweight folding e-bike made by Tokyo-based UPQ (pronounced 'up Q'). It can be fully-charged in about 3.5 hours and has a range of about 35km, which is perfect for nipping around town. Being fully electric, it obviously has no emissions and, as an added bonus, it can even charge your electronic devices via a USB port.
The other thing I really like about the company is that it was founded by a young, and obviously very smart, Japanese lady, Yuko Nakazawa (you can find her on Twitter here.)
