smart ebike on sale from 2012

Following on from its electric bicycle study last year, smart has announced that its ebike is to go into production, with a near-series model making appearances at Friedrichshafen’s ‘Eurobike Show’ later this month and at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

It will be built jointly with Biesenthal-based e-bike company GRACE, and be available to buy from as early as the first half of 2012, initially in Europe and North America dealerships for less than €2,900 ($4,150).

The ebike has a hybrid drive – a combination of leg power and electric drive. The electric boost comes via a 250 watt brushless direct current wheel hub motor integrated within the rear wheel. The ebike can be charged at any normal household socket – just like a notebook, and can be fully charged in around hours.
