The Ford E-Bike Concept

Thursday, 22 September 2011

At the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011, Ford revealed their new E-Bike Concept. It promises a range of up to 85km at full charge, and could be an innovative solution for urban mobility. Although Ford is not currently producing the E-Bike, they say they will continue studying the concept which combines cutting-edge sensor technology from Formula One racing with top-of-the-range bicycle components.

“The E-Bike market is growing very, very rapidly, with some 30 million units sold globally last year,” says Axel Wilke, director, vehicle personalisation, Ford Customer Service Division Europe. “We see E-Bikes as an important element of urban electric mobility. More and more people are using E-Bikes for short distance commuting and they are becoming comfortable with the concept of electric mobility."

With this added touch of style, WGSN-homebuildlife think that Ford could transform the E-Bike into a good-looking, efficient way of getting from A to B. If they do start rolling them out, no doubt we will have one on our wish list.
