    Hello Everyone,

    A sort of bike with rechargebale battery and motor is very popular now in China. I think it should be called electric bike. Is it proper?

    Regards

    Sky

    I don't know if that's the proper term for the kind of bike you're describing, but it certainly gets the meaning across.

    I guess there are few such bikes in the US, but there are electric cars, which is run by electricity, what should we call such car, electric car or electric motor car or others ?

    In your opinion, what should it be called?
