JackRabbit CEO Jason Kenagy is a tech industry veteran with a deep enthusiasm for cycling, and sustainability. His recent panel at SXSW highlighted the fact that, while electric cars are here (and here to stay), their relatively high price points limit their ability to make the biggest impact in the shortest time, which means they aren’t the necessarily the most viable solution to climate change. As Jason and his partners said when they looked at the problem, “We need to think small to make a big change.”

The JackRabbit micro e-bike was born from that simple idea. Developed in the US by Jason and JackRabbit CTO, Tom Piszkin, the JackRabbit represents a new kind of vehicle that offers the safety, stability, and comfort of a bicycle at a price that’s closer to that of an electric scooter.

The JackRabbit’s 20″ wheels and compact batteries (small enough to fly on a commercial airline) make it a unique mobility proposition – and the fact that you can fit nearly a half-dozen of these in your Tesla? That’s just icing on the lithium-ion cake.
