We were very excited this month to have a chat with Exponential Investor’s Andrew Lockley about the European ebike boom and how we will be contributing to it.
Although we fully support the sometimes overhyped move to electric cars, and even electric planes, we believe that electric bikes are an often overlooked way of transforming the way people get around. What’s more, they are already with us in large numbers: 1.6 million electric bikes were sold across Europe last year compared to fewer than 0.1 million electric cars.
We are excited to help more people to use ebikes in their everyday life by developing a genuinely lightweight folding ebike for the modern city that can be carried and stored anywhere.
