Mercedes-Benz is a highly sought-after brand that is known for being one of the most luxurious and desirable on the market. Mercedes-Benz’ all-electric subsidiary Mercedes-EQ is also a highly-desired brand. Its line of high-quality electric vehicles are based on the brand’s fuel-powered counterparts. Did you know that Mercedes-EQ also has an interest in electric bicycles?
Mercedes-EQ introduced the CE, or Championship Edition e-bike. It is a model of the brand’s highly successful Formula E Team. The bike is race-ready and takes inspiration from Formula E’s high-tech race cars. Why? They can. Mercedes is commemorating the first all-electric double World Championship with its Formula E Team.
We’ll be going into more detail about the two-wheeler. It is made by n+ Bikes. Mercedes worked with them before on previous ebike models. The CE’s total output from both motors, which is 750W, has a remarkable torque figure of 130 Nm. However, because it is an e-bike, it must comply with certain rules. It can only travel 28 mph and has a maximum torque figure of 130 Nm. Two 10-amp-hour batteries power the motors, one on each side of the frame, and the other on each side of the seat post. The motors are said to have a range of 75 miles in “optimal riding conditions”.
The e-bike also features Maxxis Hookworm tires, which are road-focused and offer smoothness on paved roads. A standard telescopic front suspension handle has been added to take the pressure off uneven roads like cobblestones and light gravel. The bike transmits power from the rider’s legs using a belt drive system. This is known for being quieter than chain-driven systems and less maintenance. The Mercedes-EQ CE ebike is $5,800.
