“Panasonic has over twenty years of experience with e-bikes and is therefore the perfect partner for us”, says the Dutch company in a press release. Gazelle’s quality combined with Panasonic’s proven technology results in a robust system with a choice of battery packs. The e-bikes featuring the Panasonic system are reliable and stylish while maintaining the looks of a normal bicycle. They are also equipped with hand-grip operation and Walk Assist.

The new e-bikes have been extensively tested by consumers in recent months. Their feedback resulted in the finer tuning of the models’ three power settings: eco, normal and sport.

Best choice for flat terrain

Ferdi Ertekin, Marketing Manager at Royal Dutch Gazelle, on the front-wheel system: “The front-wheel motor has a number of important advantages over other systems. This type of motor is quieter, fits better in a bicycle’s design, has the ability to free-wheel and is easy to maintain. That is why the front-wheel motor is often the best choice for flat terrain.”
