Is Toyota getting into electric bikes? Here is a concept e-bike from the large auto manufacturer. It has a mid drive motor and the battery is housed in the mainframe.
This concept may never make it to production but Toyota is claiming that their new i-Road electric 3 wheeler will. The i-Road is an interesting vehicle that blends some of the e-trike technology with car technology.
BMC recently opened their new Stromer electric bike assembly facility near Bern Switzerland. They invested $8 million euro’s in the new e-bike plant!
Speaking of new e-bike factories, Riese und Müller, just opened a new facility in Weiterstadt, Germany.
