Few electric folders are available. Fewer still are good quality. Here's a note from the best dealer in the country:

"We have found than many customers coming in looking for an electric folder do ride away on a pedal-only Brompton or Dahon." - Eric Sundin, EBsNW, Seattle, WA, http://www.ebikesnw.com

Although far from the smallest, this Montague Paratrooper is a snap to fold. If you can afford the space, the larger wheels (26") help smooth out rough roads. Click here to watch the Paratrooper Folding Demo on YouTube.

VeloMini

The electric bicycle big enough to ride and small enough to carry

The VeloMini® is the right bike for any lifestyle. Whether a person lives in the suburbs, the city, on campus, or near the harbor, the VeloMini will make getting around in style a little easier, and a lot more fun.

The powerful 180 watt brushless hub motor will transport a person 8 to 10 miles at speeds up to12 mph. It folds to 18 inches tall and fits into its own carrying case.

The VeloMini is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery hidden in the durable anodized aluminum frame. The VeloMini gives you three choices of motion; pedal like a bike, use the throttle like a moped, or turn it on and the pedal assist mode makes pedaling easy.

VeloMinis are small, light weight, stylish, versatile, convenient, and durable. They fold down so small you can take it with you practically everywhere, and are available in a number of appealing colors. Each VeloMini comes with a carrying case (which folds into a pack back), a carry strap, charger and tool kit.

The VeloMini Lite is a non-electric version with all of the features of the VeloMini but without the battery and motor - and only half the price.

NEO VELOX

The NEO is designed to handle like a regular bicycle, even when the motor is not being used. The bike is largely hand crafted, with attention to every detail, and uses quality U.S. made parts as well as some of the world's best and strongest components.

Thanks to the Montague Folding Integrated Technology, the bike can be easily folded and transported in a car's trunk or stored in a closet or corner of the room. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The FIT™ & CLIX™ systems feature firmly locking quick releases that are designed to hold the frame and wheel in place even when accidentally undone while riding.

The single speed setup guarantees simplicity of operation. The NEO has the added benefit that changing tires is no more involved than with a regular bicycle.

The NEO VELOX has a patent pending electric drive system that saves weight and maximizes efficiency. There are three motor power options available. Depending on the rider, road conditions, and local E-bike legislation, a choice can be made between a 200, 250, or 350 Watts brushless motor.

eZeebike Quando

The eZeeBike has been a successful and sought-after line of e-bikes in Europe that are now available in the United States. Equipped with 250-watt silent (gearless) hub motors, a range of 20 miles and top assisted speed of 15 mph is possible with the two folding models - the eZee Quando and Quando II. Well-crafted aluminum alloy frames and lithium batteries make these bikes lighter than other electric bikes.

The Quando is small, comfortable, foldable, simple, and a joy to ride. It is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a compact folding electric bicycle. The Quando folds easily and conveniently so that it can readily be tucked into a corner. But the real fun is riding the Quando. It's like a fun little scooter that lets you pedal whenever you want. The Quando is the ideal solution for boat, plane, small apartment, or for those of us looking for a simple joy of a ride that lets us easily get around town and stay healthy too.

The Quando combines a powerful 250 watt motor, a long-range lithium ion battery, a well-designed folding frame, and compact 20 inch wheels. The Quando II lacks the rear suspension included in the Quando. As a result, the Quando II will fit smaller riders that the Quando. With a simple twist-grip throttle and no gears (no shifting required!), the Quando rides with the comfort of a bicycle yet has the convenience and ease of a small and delightful scooter. It is the ideal combination of simplicity, comfort, power, range, and storability.
