I am very well connected with Ford Motor, and although the maker is not a part of Ford, I was promised to be connected with the right person for Q&A. Start coming with Qs.

@Paul E. --here's in answer "DUH!" However, all products that DO get produced were also once a concept and prototype...another "DUH!"

This is what I just got:

"
The e-bikes – MoDe:Flex, MoDe:Me, and MoDe:pro – are all prototypes and developed to support Ford research experiments at this point. Ford has not made any announcements to make the e-bikes available for sale at this point.
In urban environments many consumers are using different modes of transportation to get where they need to go – or multi-modal mobility solutions. Through Ford Smart Mobility, Ford is studying how electric bicycles and mobile application technology can work seamlessly with cars and public transport to deliver faster and easier daily commutes."

I swear... most of the cool stuff gets unveiled in the Bay Area. I never should've moved away...
