Swedish-German battery partnership takes drive system to new heights

Höganäs AB has launched a new range of drive systems together with German battery experts VARTA Microbattery GmbH. The drive systems are based on Höganäs’ transversal flux motor technology and are completed with Engion™ batteries from VARTA Microbattery. This combination results in a hill climbing ability and commuting range that takes riding experience to new heights.

          The cooperation of two strong European companies with experience and history in their own specific technologies, partnering to produce an efficient and optimised drive system, is a big step forward for the future of electric bikes, says Fred Schellert, General Manager of VARTA Microbattery–Power Pack Solutions

The first e-bikes utilising the new Höganäs Eclino™ drive systems will be on display by OhmCycles at the Eurobike 2014 fair in Friedrichshafen.
