Jeep's new e-bike turns mountains into molehills

Jeep teased its impressive electric mountain bike in a new video that shows it tackling some pretty tough terrain.

Automaker Jeep is getting into the e-bike game and a new video released by the company shows off just what its upcoming offering can do (spoiler alert: this thing climbs).

The bike has front and rear suspension can manage around 40 miles per charge. It also offers 160 nm of torque and a 750-watt Bafang ultra-drive motor. Inclines? It eats them for breakfast.

It can do things like this...

...or this.

$5,899

It also has a starting price to match all that power.

79 lbs

And weighs in at a formidable 79 lbs, making it about twice as heavy as a regular downhill bike.

...but those impressive 26 x 4.8-inch tires will help riders make short work of mountains.

Jeep's bike is set to come in both 17-inch and 19-inch sizes, supporting up to 300 pounds of load. And it can be configured as a Class 1 or 2 bike, depending on your needs or preferences.

The bike is set to start shipping in early September, with pre-orders already live on the website.

If you didn't have to charge the removable battery sometimes you might never go home again.
