Car Companies Clearly Present at Eurobike

 

Despite the waiting list there are again also notable newcomers at Eurobike this year. Like Daimler Benz. This car company today announced that its subsidiary Smart will start selling e-bikes via its own dealer network as of mid 2012.

Smart positions itself as a pioneer of locally emission-free transport and broadens its program of electric vehicles further. Like other automotive companies, Smart will have a presentation at Eurobike to capture their share of this fast growing market as Daimler stated it today in a press release.

The new Smart e-bike is developed and produced in association with Grace, an exclusive manufacturer of electric bicycles based in Berlin-Biesenthal.

The retail price of the Smart e-bike which can also be seen at the IAA (International Automobiel Show) in Hannover, will be around 2,900 euro. By comparison, the standard Grace e-bikes are sold over the internet between four and eight thousand euro.

“The Smart dealers get at least one technical training. In addition, we are looking how we can cooperate with local bicycle retailers”, said Smart’s product manager Rene Heemskerk.
