LinkData's U-Bike Looks Like A Chinese Take On The Renault Twizy

The Consumer Electronics Show is transforming into a mini automotive event and the latest company to announce plans to showcase a car in Las Vegas is Beijing LinkData Technologies.

The company will unveil its new U-Bike which is described as a "neighborhood electric vehicle." The teaser image doesn't reveal much but it shows the model will be a relatively small vehicle that resembles the Renault Twizy. Styling details are hard to make out but we can see the model will have large headlights, protruding wheels, and what appears to be an open cabin.

Power will be provided by lithium-ion batteries sourced from Panasonic and they will apparently be broken into two sections which will make them portable. That company was coy on details but its possible the batteries can be removed for easy charging.

In terms of specifics, LinkData confirmed the U-bike will be 920 mm (3 feet) wide and weigh 180 kg (396 lbs). The model will also have an "intelligent interconnection function" and a range of 100 km (62 miles).

There's no word on production plans by the company says the U-Bike will redefine short distance mobility and provide a "more convenient and environmental-friendly solution for daily commute."
