Costly InTube Systems Dominate E-Bike Offering at Eurobike
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – It's costly to obtain a license for the use of a patented InTube battery system, according to sources. At least that’s said about the one Bosch is selling for its frame-integrated batteries that come with its drive-units and other components. This license derives from the InTube battery patent that is owned by Accell and to which Bosch bought exclusive rights. It presents the leading drive systems maker the right to exclusively sell the license. This and other patented InTube systems are dominating the e-bike offering at the 28th Eurobike that started yesterday.
