Last week, Dundee Museum of Transport received the generous donation of a smart ebike (2014), manufactured by Mercedes-Benz, from a museum member. The bike was donated with its original documentation and is in excellent condition. The museum plans to display the ebike next to other electric vehicles and bikes in hall 3.
The smart ebike has a 200w electric motor and a maximum assistance speed of 25km/h. It takes around 5 hours to charge.
Ebikes are becoming an increasingly popular method of transport, especially in busy City Centres. A fleet of 350 ebikes are expected to become available for hire in Dundee this year, managed by ebike operator Ride On.
