IKEA doesn’t just sell affordable home decor to the masses anymore. The furniture giant has added eco-friendly to its repertoire in the past and is now launching an electric bike that they’re calling the FOLKVÄNLIG.

The electric bike is designed to be a sleek ride that is both environment-friendly and affordable for conscious commuters and consumers. It has a front fork made of steel and an aluminum frame that also holds the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It is powered by a 250-watt electric motor, toting a pedal-assisted range of 37 to 45 miles. Built with a Shimano transmission with six different driving modes, the bike comes in designs for both men and women. Its riders will need to set aside approximately 6 hours to charge it, making it the perfect bike to ride to work and charge during the work day.

The FOLKVÄNLIG costs 749 Euros or about 1,000 USD and will initially be available at a few IKEA stores in Vienna, Austria.

The Swedish company is also known for its other eco-friendly practices such as packing its products in ways that help reduce waste materials, and using solar power for its buildings and products. The planet-passionate company is taking earth-friendly even further by planning to get 100% of the energy it uses in its stores and buildings from renewable energy sources by the year 2020. The eco-friendly bike is just another step in the sustainable direction.

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
