What happens when you are moving without using the electric motor? Are you gonna have some sort of clutch on it so the back wheels dont turn it?

How about an alternator being turned by the wheels too so you can get some recharging when youre not using the motor.

Sounds like something that would really be useful in stop-and-go traffic.
