Electrified bicycles allow you to get around with minimal effort, but most aren't capable of providing significant payload and weather protection. CityQ is free of these disadvantages, and at the same time, it is endowed with the stability of a four-wheeled vehicle.
Although the vehicle looks like a small car, it does not take up more space than a scooter. CityQ electric bike is equipped with conventional bicycle pedals and a 250-watt electric motor. As with the electric bicycle, the rider has to pedal; however, it lacks a chain, gears, or shifting, because the corresponding functions are performed by a software-controlled drivetrain.
The fact is that the vehicle can bring benefits to urban mobility. According to the company itself, intelligent micro-mobility will change urban transport in the next 10 years. It is the way for cities to reduce polluting car traffic. Urban transport will be cleaner with electric vehicles, with a greater focus on connectivity and cloud services.
The CityQ uses two batteries providing a cruising range of 70–100 km. It takes about 5 hours to fully charge the batteries from household power. The maximum speed of an electric bike is limited to 25 km / h.
The new electric bike is equipped with a lightweight body, windshield and roof designed to protect against wind and precipitation.
The CityQ electric bike is only 87 cm wide, 222 cm long, and the turning radius is 4 meters. According to the developers, CityQ officially belongs to the class of electric bicycles, so it can be driven from the age of 13 without a driver's license.
CityQ is already available for pre-order on the manufacturer's official website at a price of 7,450 euros.
