Auto manufacturers invest in a carless future
Consider the following situation – the closest parking spot to the concert amphitheater is a mile-long walk. Instead of circling the block, wasting time and gas, or using a Lime or Bird app to locate the nearest scooter, perhaps you’d rather dismount a fully charged electric scooter or bike from the trunk or front car door and make it to the concert on time. Auto manufacturers remain a proponent of autonomy and ownership, even if what they’re manufacturing are varieties of electric scooters and bikes. According to theand the article from freightwaves.com
Ford has had an interest in electric bikes since 2015 when it collaborated with Dahon to release the MoDe: Me e-bike, which was designed to fold into a trunk. But Business Insider calls the Ford Super Cruiser the carmaker’s official e-bike, selling for $3,695. The e-bike is lower-tech than other models, with no LCD display or Bluetooth connection, but can reach 20 mph and has a range of 15 to 30 miles when fully charged. White also wrote in the article.
