Israel Corporation (TASE: ILCO) and China's Chery Automobile Company Ltd. joint venture Qoros has unveiled a prototype of a smart electric bicycle - EBIKE - at the Geneva International Motor Show. The bike, one of the most advanced electric bicycles ever developed, is equipped with a large battery, electric motor, touchscreen display and traditional pedals.
Combining the motor with physical pedaling, the bicycle can reach 60 kilometers per hour and a range of 120 kilometers before the battery needs recharging.
The EBIKE also features a 5-inch touchscreen display mounted on the handlebars, which connects to the Qoros platform for route planning, navigation, and other apps.
The battery takes 80 minutes to fully recharge from any regular electricity connection. The Qoros bicycle is expected to cost around €5,000.
