A German-made folding e-bike packed with clever features that can go 45 miles on a single charge? Yes please!
Blaupunkt, a German electronics company that became well-known for its ultra high-quality car stereo systems in the 1970s and into the 90s, has entered the US e-mobility market with a new folding electric bike. The brand has already been making folding e-bikes and even a cargo e-trike over in Europe.
It comes with three different names – Henri, Fiete, and Fiene – that differentiate the bike’s three available colorways. The bike has a die-cast magnesium-alloy frame that folds down to 20 x 30 x 23 inches and weighs 46 lbs with a maximum payload of 265 lbs.
The 350-W rear-hub motor provides 50 Nm of torque, and the three levels of pedal assist can get you up to a top speed of 20 mph – and the removable 36 V/10.5 Ah Li-ion battery can go for up to 45 miles on a single charge.
For the even more technical aspects, this e-bike comes with a backlit LCD display that shows speed, distance, and stats, and it also has an LED headlight and rear reflector combination.
The Henri model is gray/black, the Fiete is blue/black, and the Fiene is orange/black. The bike is truly an international product – it was designed in Germany, is built in Paraguay, and is now on sale in the US at Bike Exchange for $1,999 – but if you’d rather “shop local,” just be patient: Blaupunkt is currently seeking additional retailers across the US.
