It's big news when a leader in the sustainable transportation market goes all out on an electric bike: Meet the Smart ebike, which Mike brought to our attention last month in the article Smart's Award-Winning Electric Bike is Coming to the United States. The ebike is now on sale in Europe, but won't hit the U.S. market for a few more months.

As Mike mentioned, the ebike recently picket up the prestigious Red Dot award for its design. Now it has been named a participant in Germany's most prestigious design prize, the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, and I got to see it first-hand at contemporary design show DMY Berlin. Winners in the awards program will be announced in the fall.
