The Pedego Latch Electric Folding Bike is a lightweight and compact model designed to stow away easily in your Tesla Model S or Model X trunk. Now riders can store their electric folding bike right inside their Tesla trunk, unfold it quickly, and, enjoy a ride at Tesla Supercharger stops and/or wherever their Tesla takes them. Designed and engineered by a Tesla Model S owner, this electric folding bike folds up in less than 60 seconds and weighs just 43 pounds – 50 with the battery. The twist-and-go throttle and Pedal Assist computer offer choices in ways to unleash the Latch’s power. Its belt drive system provides a seamless, quiet ride. The bike’s internally geared hub allows riders to enjoy smooth shifting.
Please Note: The Pedego Electric Folding Bike can be shipped ONLY within the 48 Continental U.S. States. It is NOT available for International delivery.
Your bike will arrive pre-assembled and requires only a few simple steps to get it ready for you to ride:
1) First, lower the seat all the way down.
2) Then rotate the crank arms to the 3 and 9 o-clock positions with the non-drive side towards the front of the bike.
3) Now fold both pedals.
4) Next, turn the handlebar down so the brake levers line up with the handlebar stem.
5) And then lower the handlebar stem.
6) Then fold the entire handlebar stem down.
7) Now put the kickstand up.
8) And open the latch.
9) Last, fold the bike in half and pin the front wheel to the rear wheel where it will lock into place.
What battery should I choose?
Experience shows that most people are completely satisfied with the standard 36V 10Ah battery. It usually provides more than enough power and range, and it’s the most affordable option. The extended range 36V 15Ah battery is best for trips over 20 miles or if you plan to pedal very little (or not at all). It can really come in handy to have excess capacity.
How far can I go on a single battery charge?
The short answer to this question is far enough! Generally speaking, any Pedego battery should last longer than you. We don’t hear many stories of people running out of juice. With that said, this can be a complicated question because there isn’t a “standard” and everybody makes vastly different claims about range. So we’ll go over some simple math that can help you objectively predict the range of any electric bike. All batteries have both a Voltage and Amp Hour rating. If you multiply the two together, you get Watt Hours. Watt Hours is an objective measurement of the actual amount of energy stored in a battery.
Volts x Amp Hours = Watt Hours
This is where it gets tricky, because there are so many variables. On average, you can expect to use between 12-24 watt hours per mile. This number fluctuates so much because of differences in terrain, rider weight, weather, speed, and most importantly how much you pedal.
How long until a battery needs to be replaced?
You can expect your battery to last about 2-4 years. Lithium batteries usually don’t just stop working altogether, what happens is they gradually lose their capacity over time. Pedego batteries are backed up by an industry-leading three year warranty, where the first year is guaranteed 100% and the next two years are pro-rated based on how long you’ve had the battery. To prolong the life of your battery it’s suggested that you avoid discharging it completely, and the big thing is to make sure that you charge it at least once every couple months.
Can two bikes fit in the Model X without folding down the third row seats?
The third row seat must be folded down to fit one or two Pedago bikes in the Model X trunk. As you put the bikes into the Model X trunk, we recommend covering the seat backs with a large blanket or towel or our Pet Cargo Cover to ensure that the gloss finish is not scratched.

Can I charge the battery by pedaling?
The battery is charged by plugging it into the wall, and the more you pedal the farther you can go. Your pedaling conserves the battery, but it doesn’t actually charge it. The technology does exist that would allow you to charge your bike by pedaling, but we’ve found that it just doesn’t make sense in the real world. The problem is that it makes it hard to pedal, and that’s not fun! Even under the most ideal conditions, like riding downhill, the amount of energy you would get back is negligible.
How fast can I go?
All Pedegos are governed at 20MPH in accordance with federal and state regulations.
How much does the bike weigh?
The Pedego Latch weights 43lbs without the battery, and 50lbs with the battery.
