I hired one in the US last year, and Izip Beach Cruiser style - you could switch to power only no pedalling and I reckon they did around 25mph(pedalling) - most fun was had with pedal assist - great fun even uphill, little wheelies when you put the weight back and the power on. I reckon it would be a good commuter solution but riding it in the blazing heat at a hilly beach resort (Catalina) really was brilliant fun.
the IZip I had was cost around $2000
