Schwinn’s New Electric Bikes October 22, 2006Posted by Unreasonable in Energy Matters, Matters Technological.
They can be driven by pedals, battery power, or both. Schwinn claims a 40 mile range on a 4 hour charge. Top speed is about 14 MPH. The battery is located in the rack over the back wheel, and its removable so you can still pedal the bike while it charges. The electric drive adds 10 pounds.

Why don’t they charge the battery using pedal power also?
