The ET-120 is billed as the first commercial hybrid two-wheeled vehicle. Designed for the crowded streets and limited budgets of India, it won’t be setting any speed records (it tops out at 65 kilometers per hour), but the price is right at less than $1,000. Electrical energy is stored in lead-acid batteries, and the bike gets 120 kilometers per liter of gas, compared with about 25 to 75 kilometers per liter for conventional mopeds.
